    Well, after all this time, I finally decided to order zero exhaust from Kevin.
    I can not wait to install them and hear the difference compared to the original exhaust (but have to wait 4/5 weeks)

    Yes I don't think I'll be disappointed. For the sound level he just told me : "I only make the Zero Loud Quads", so I understood no sound level option ?
    Anyway I told him that the car also serves me to take the kids on vacation so nothing TOO much loud (but it's relative think).

    I understand. With this kind of setup, in my case, the internal child protection squad (my wife) won't let me leave

    Whatever you may think (or not) about the effect that noise pollution has on the environment and the rest of society, the legal noise level in the EU, UK included, is 82 decibels, +/- zero (excuse the pun). Notwithstanding that, if the noise levels created as a result of modification or whatever, exceeds that of the original at type approval, then that's not allowed under law either.

    Since the vehicle is technically not road-legal then, it probably renders your insurance invalid too.
    Do you really want to go that road?

    .... discuss (but quietly please !).

    Vehicle noise limits


    There are limits to the amount of noise that vehicles can make on public roads. This applies to all types of vehicles.
    In general, larger vehicles with bigger engines are able to make more noise.



    It doesn't actually give the limit on the UK Government site, just says there is one

    Edit: Doh, just realised Remi is in France anyway
