    I've just had one of the final (for now!) stages done to my CLK 500 W209, black series kit, full respray and twinned pipes with quad tips happen, had the muffler deleted and resonator was already removed ages ago, Pipecraft in Basildon (Essex) did the exhaust work

    Heard and Thought that the noise would be a massive drone at motorway speeds, not on the 200 miles I did straight after, just insane bellows, I will get a sound clip soon, I know lots of people debate having this done, I high reccomend.

    So you basically have straight-through pipe from the cats back? I remember seeing a Youtube clip of an R129 SL500 with this setup and it sounded pretty good! A potential MOT fail though, depending on the whim of the tester

    As did I on my W208 CLK55. Had a slight drone though at certain revs. Sounded like it was setting the world on fire though!

    Basically it has primary and secondary cats, then from there it's straight pipes, got through the MOT last week with no mention of it :)
    Almost forgot, here's a sound clip with Gopro
