    I was with a London ferrari specialist this afternoon who came up to birmingham to see me. He has made me an offer. As some of you who do not have me on there ignor list will know,two months ago picked myself up a exhaust system fron notts stainless steel company. I am %100 pleased with it and has always sang its praises, and i recon it will easly stand up next to any other system that i have heard. He recons that the capritso is the system i want to have on my car. MMM i dont know. He said he would collect the car fit it and give me a month with it for free, and recons i will ring him within a week to buy it, if not he will take it of. I swear that my system in fantastic and that i wont want to buy. Is the Capristo realy that good??
    If i do make the call then my system will be up for sale. Cant wait to take him up on the challenge. What do ya think??

    Chaa,
    IMO you should at least try it, after all you've got nothing to lose. If you like it great, if not you get your existing put back on. Winner all ways round from where I am.
    keep us posted M8

    Chaa, the Capristo really does sound that good on the 355 - you have nothing to lose with trying it out! Plus you can then let us know if your system is as good, would save some of us a fortune on fitting a system!

    If you can wait a couple of weeks then you can have a listen to mine at Silverstone. I'll even take you round in it if you like, then you can decide for yourself if you like them.

    They're not to everybody's taste as they're very "full on", especially de-cat. But if you really like your exhaust note to be a major factor in your enjoyment of the car then you can certainly do worse

    I've a nssc on my TR and would find it hard to believe that there is a better sound out there, the TR revs more freely and above 5,000 screams like an F1 car, could there be life on Mars.....

    Its being done now,it may come back to me by the week end. Cost? if i go for it it will be at cost, even then it will be double the cost of a brandnew Stainless company one, Or three times what i paid for the stainless company system becourse i bought it second hand (two weeks old) form the stainless company.
    If i do change to Capristo,i will offer my stainless company system on UK f.chat for what i paid for it, if no takes i will ebay it or wall mount it.
    Mb: If i like the sound of the Capristo on my car and buy the system, i do not feel as though i will be Upgrading my system, i think its just a different piched system and thats all. All food is good, Indian food is good, chinese food is good, Italian food is good. And becourse i go from a blond babe to a dark haired babe, it does not mean that i have upgraded. Get my point?

    What a cracking simily!

    I'll be interested to see what you think. A mate picked up a stock 355 yesterday and I really think it sounds crap compared to a Tubi/Capristo (sp) - he's contemplating an upgrade already so I shall mention this to him IF you decide to change.
