I have had an Xpipe fitted for about 18 months now , no problem with MOT(Maindealer) , I have been told you can get thro' the MOT with one set of CATs removed + an Xpipe ( too loud for my taste ) , On the noise level with an Xpipe you only heard the difference when hit the go pedal ,when you are driving at a constant speed you can not heard the difference from a non Xpipe set up & with the roof up there is little extra noise . The Xpipe comes into its own with the roof down & on 'A' roads , tunnels & around towns .
I did hear that there is a new ruling with CATS & MOTs ,it was something like ,You will require the same number of CATs fitted on the car as when the car left the factory ,Not sure if or when this will be part of the MOT ???
