    Any thoughts on sound difference between just a muffler delete vs the $2000 JCW Pro Exhaust? I know the JCW pro exhaust comes with a tune, but the main thing I am interested in is sound. On my 2019 MCS F 57 I have deleted my muffler for $150 and put on chrome split tips. Looks good, has a bit of a drone at highway speeds, so considering going with the JCW pro exhaust so I can “switch on” the muffler when I get tired of the drone.

    If I were going to spend that kind of money I would get a good muffler from Detroit Tuned. They have a couple that would sound good for around $600 and then get one of their tunes they sale. I believe it would be a more aggressive tune.

    You could give them a call and find out witch exhaust sounds good with out droning.
    Unless your Mini is still under warranty then maybe the JCW set up.

    2 grand for an exhaust? Now I know what the F stands for in F 57.

    You can get a much better exhaust for less than 2 grand, don’t pay Dealership JCW Retail prices !

    It does come with a tune so that helps. If you think 2k is bad for a MINI....I was at the Indian dealer good guys. I asked the service about new exhaust for my Roadmaster. It was going to be $1800 by the time they were done. But it comes with a tune and slightly deferent intake.

    But it looks like DT could do it cheeper. The only thing is retaining the warranty

    It comes with a fuel over run flash so it goes pop and bang. Not worth 2 grand.

    The JCW exhaust is under $1000 right now at MINI dealers. Someone mentioned that he was quoted 1250 installed at a MINI dealer.

    If you order the JCW Pro exhaust. It comes on a pallet and the box is big. There's a youtube unboxing video of it.
