This is not an answer to your question as I supply Ferrita Swedish made fully stainless systems.

You can get a BSR system from Nordic or one of their stockists, or you can get the exact same item from the actual manufacturer's importer Jetex and branded as such in Leamington Spa or one of their stockists.

I supply the fully stainless Ferrita cat back system for 295 including VAT.

You may well find that the BSR/Jetex item is offered cheaper but is not stainless.

I give an unlimited warranty on the Ferrita system for as long as you own the car to which you first fitted it.

You can check www.ferrita.se

Regards, Don.Norchi.

My BSR was fine, until it fell apart.

Needed a new downpipe as the flexy failed and the mid box baffles started to rattle.

The exhaust is overall quieter but deeper imo but sounds great WOT.

Get a Ferrita.

I've got a BSR cat-back on the 850 and I really like it so far. There is a bit of resonance at around 2000 rpm but other than that it sounds meatier without being intrusive until you really open the taps, at which point it sounds bloody brilliant

Cheers,
John

I will echo the sentiments here. The Ferrita will serve you well; I got mine from Don nearly 5 years back and it still works perfectly; its not intrusive and more importantly, I have not had any quality issues with it.

Interesting.

The BSR website says:

Quote:
BSR Sportflow comes with a three-year general warranty and a five-year corrosion warranty.
Were you referring to the Downpipe (with the "flexy" comment) which has a 12 month warranty?

Either way, from what I've heard and seen, I'd stick with Ferrita in future.
