First drive: Milltek Golf GTI

"Oh great, someone's been tampering with a Golf GTI. Yes, the Golf GTI is such a respected all-rounder now that tampering with it seems almost indecent. It's as if Laura Ashley had started selling bondage gear. However, since VW itself isn't above adding extra power to the platform (see our recent drive of the new Golf R) maybe we should cut Milltek some slack. After all, the gains they've got from the 4cyl 2.0-litre turbo are, well, remarkable."  Read full article

US Porsche Cayman S owners acclaim latest Milltek performance exhaust

"The Milltek complete exhaust system produced a healthy 21hp and 15lb/ft torque gain at the rear wheels. That's roughly 25hp at the motor or the equivalent of a 997 3.6 motor! The car now has a much more throaty sound but is quiet at idle thereby avoiding resonance problems. The exhaust gives the Cayman an angry snarl. I can't imagine that Milltek will be able to make these babies fast enough...the system is really that good."  Read full article

Staff Rides - Gez's S4 2.7T

"A good run showed that the pipes [cat-back system] gave a 10bhp hike from 3500 to 5500rpm - now that's proper realworld useful power. As for peak power, the cars were a limiting factor. I can't wait to see what she can do with the hi-flow versions on."  Read full article
