    Have any of you guys heard a 328 with a Bell sports exhaust on?

    I am considering having one fitted by KHPC who claim it sounds better than a TUBI.

    I heard one idling when I was there yesterday and it did look and sound fab.

    Hedge I had the 'noisy' Bell on my 328 sounded fantastic, very very loud though! they do a slightly quieter version I believe, mine was stamped with 110dB on it!

    KHPC briefly demonstrated a TR with a Bell exhaust to me. I have considered it for my car but find it hard to justify the cost of an upgrade to this or the tubi from my present Borla system.

    I have to say the Bell probably sounded best of all but would love to hear it on a decent run.

    The main thing that worries me with Bell is that it's an unknown name (at least to me). Is it the same company that do the helmets?

    From what I gathered, KHPC have them manufactured for them, and they are an exact replica looks-wise of the original Ferrari sports exhaust, just better quality (the original apparently used to rot..this one won't).

    I thought it seemed pretty reasonable too - £899 including VAT and fitting, and can be done while you wait..drive in, DRIVE out.

    I had a KHPC exhaust on a 328. I dunno if it was a Bell, but it sounded absolutely great!

    Tiring on a long run though...

    I recently listened to a Tubi but have only heard a Bell very briefly. I'm hoping to organise to meet someone locally who has a Bell fitted so I'll let you have my thoughts on them both.

    If you're upgrading from a stock exhaust then even the Borla would be a big improvement. I will have a used Borla for sale should I decide to go for a Tubi or Bell. Let me know if you're interested?
