Can you give me your opinion on whether these sound chavy? I'm tempted, I now it wont give any more power but I want the noise in my life lol.

As you expect you will get mixed reviews. A lot of people, myself included get bored of the noise. If its your first turbo car then I suppose it's a must?!

Yep, ive had one, it was on the car when I bought it and after about 10 months I got real sick of the noise and got rid of it, I had a bit of a struggle to get a standard recirc too as I did not have it, everyone that had on did not want to sell just incase they didn't like the dv after a while.
But it's everyone ti there own, if you want one and not bothered about getting sick of the noise then get one!

Ive had one since i got the car, i still love it, just changed the spring in it to a yellow one and it doesnt do the bus air brake noise now, it just chirps when i take off the go pedal, each to there own but i still need this in my life brings out the kid in me and scares innocent bystanders lol

i have one on mine and iv had it since i bought the car...in fact i bought it before i got the car lol...its a forge one... a little bit annoying after a while and mines about as loud as its going to get now with the sound deadening out and the blanking plate in...but get one.. se if you like it with the standard recirc in and if you want it louder put the blanking plate on..simples :-D...........also if you get bored then get a different model like the ssqv which loads completely different

Driving and let off just about 2k ( but let of slowly) ch-ch-chs still makes smile, but can get boring.

No no disadvantages, some say recirc holds boost.?!?

Ive got one on mine, I had it with recirc and with blanking plate, the blanking plate is a must in my opinion, the sound is so much better....

no disadvantages as such i don't think it holds boost quite as well but i like the feeling when you come of the turbo cuz it puts you forward then and soon as you back on throttle your pinned again

I've got one and I don't think I'll ever get bored of it. It's very funny watching people run to the bus stop when they hear it.

I'm glad you asked the question! Been thinking about this recently too and got some good answers. I think I'll end up doing the same as you though, if I get bored I'll sell on.

Do they usually come with different springs?
