Hi Guys,
I have had the change of a life time...No not a sex change!! Had the Scuderia Exhaust treatment on my 456 today. Many thanx to Manu and Ajay. I get the feeling they enjoyed scaring the "locals" around Egham also Its purrrfect, loud and deep at tickover to 2000 rpm, then a nice sound in the background 2-3500 rpm. Give it lead foot and well it's quite breathtaking. Fanbloodytastic. Sound trials on Sunday. Can't Wait. C U all there.

Hah! "Sometime next year" you told me 3 or 4 weeks ago! And what's it now, lets see, yes, by my reckoning, NOT next year .

Spoke to Manu this afternoon. Was hoping to join you down in Egham today but my flight was late and I had stuff to do up here. Manu was pretty excited and did some sound effects for me; I sincerely hope it sounds better than that...

Nice one G.Really looking forward to hearing the real mcoy. Sunday should be a bit special.

Hi Kevin,
Traffic was a 'mare around Egham today, The Missus was the biggest hurdle in the "Justifying exhaust system" process I thought about Not telling her, but quite it's difficult explaining the sudden Lancaster Bomber noise coming out of the tail pipes She's not that daft Unfortunately she's working sunday, so I'll be alone. See you there.

Does she like it though? My money's on a resounding yes.

Came as a surprise to me that Mrs 456 is totally into the sound of sports exhausts. She loves the 456 sound and gave me no grief when I told her that I wanted a decent zorst on the 360 too. Went past her on a slip road after I'd had the 360 'done', and timed it just right so that I changed up at 8.5K just as I was going past her open window. She thought it sounded F. wonderful...

I started the car up in the garage when the missus got in this evening, she looked like this, Priceless. F'ing loud in the garage. Saw F40 John on the way home, I think he was impressed..

Woohoo! This must be some sort of virus.. Chas told me that John and Barry are going to put sports exhausts on their cars after that evening when I brought the 360 to the pub. I just KNEW Barry would go for a Tubi on his 360 when he heard mine; he was trying to look nonchalant, as he was studying every damn inch of the installation. Cracks me up; he should never play poker.

G. You're a bd! Not feeling anywhere near brave enough to tell the missus yet. Oh God! What's the phrase? Oh yes 'sometime next year....'

Sorry about that!!
I just knew you would love it, I am back into my TVR days with a car that turns heads BEFORE you reach them. I had a girl in a XR2 behind me on the way home, she was holding her mobile phone out of the window, probably capturing (in disbelief) the sound of my car, as she got closer I dropped a few cogs and gave it Large. When she finally caught up next to me at some lights, I looked over to check her out and she had a huge smile on her face. ahh (Thoughts I can't disclose... ) Nice I thought, shame about the car! Great to see all the lovely car's today what did you nutters do later??

Cheers
G.
