    Car exhaust noise

    Hi all, just got a new car it has twin exhausts which are custom, but does anybody know what I can do to make it a bit quieter as it's very loud! Is there anything I can clip on or do?
    Many thanks

    Get a standard exhaust put back on, before you get caught for excessive … Get a standard exhaust put back on, before you get caught for excessive noise maight save you a fine as well



    It's not that loud!!

    try using redex engine cleaner to clean out the engine so the fumes will be cleaner, this might help reduce the exhaust noise if it's not meant to be that loud.

    It's meant to be that way bet its an ex chav thats had it. Someone stuck a bore exhaust on my HDI. Luckily it only makes a lot of noise at certain revs.

    same this only gets loud when driving over 40mph but it's a annoying drone. No a lady had it since new and customised it she wasn't a chav though!

    try my advice, no harm done, it will only cost around £3.50.

    If it's got a performance air filter then replace it with a standard one … If it's got a performance air filter then replace it with a standard one as that combined with the modded exhaust will contribute to the "boy racer" sound.

    Might be worth looking to see if there is a hole in the exhaust?

    Had it checked and Its all fine with no holes! :-/

    If you want the look of having two exausts but don't want the chav sound simply get a standard exhaust and stick a metal pipe next to it. What the heck, get 10.

    Why did you buy the car if it has this noise that bothers you?

    is this a comedy thread? I;d be more worried about the legitimacy of the car as it sounds like you bought it off a horizontal striped shellsuit chav

    Katie,

    on a more serious note, is it a rattling noise? like the exhause is loose?

    One of my friends at work had an exhaust silencer installed... bit costly.. approx £200.

    I don't know too much about cars.. but hope that information helps.
