    Not sure about the internals but have a look at P D Gouth in Nottingham, uk. They makes very good replacements

    For QV also part number 118353, 118353/A and CH part number 120703....the muffler on the lower picture has part number 118353-46....
    I wonder also how they sound differently.

    I've got a QV CH, the car is (sadly) very very quiet!

    ...and if you wondered how the swiss spec exhaust sounds, just uploaded a video of my very own Mondial:


    (I'm planing to do some more Mondial stuff related clips, so subscribe if you like ;-) )

    Happy to hear some comments on how it compares to EU spec.

    Absolutely; same for the 328s.
    - Standard euro: not muted (even if the "original factory exhaust" sound is not that terrific.)
    - German exhaust: slightly more muted than the "standard euro" (My 328 GTS was sold originally in Germany, my 328 GTB in France)
    - Swiss exhaust: most muted of the three (comparison valid before the swiss 3.2 engine got catalysed, and fitted with the KE Jet - the "046" engine, circa mid 1987, which makes comparison with the other two irrelevant afterwards)

    AFAIK all the mid-engined V8s (GT4, 308/328, Mondial) are known for being quiet. When I took mine to get a custom exhaust made the chap looked at the standard system and said it was designed that way, even the tips are mini silencers.
