    Justifying a full exhaust system for my 98 V70 R.

    I think my car would deffo benefit from a full new system, but to spend ITRO of 1,100 on a nearly 20 year old car with 193k miles on the clock, I find hard to justify.

    However, if the system could be switched to another car at a later stage, then it makes more sense.

    Thinking early next year for this, but should I go for it?

    I'm byest as I'm chucking money at mine after 10 years of ownership! But that sort of money would make me think twice, but because of the cost there is a good resale value.
    I hoping for a good S/H performance system to pop up.

    I keep in stock Ferrita's stainless cat back and their downpipe with special cat, but that d/p is only for the later cars with angled flange turbos.

    I can thoroughly recommend TME's stuff.

    I have a full system on the S70 and the fit is absolutely spot on.
    Sounds nice and subtle at idle, but bloody lovely at full chat
    Think Neal has one on his 850 too.

    Not cheap, but at current exchange rate works out at around 950 inc the DP and cat.

    Linky to price list
