If you’re bang into your BMW MINIs, you’ll know that last year new government regulations forced them to fit an all-new GPF (Gasoline Particulate Filter) for emissions which, scientifically speaking, sucks the big one.

There is some good news though (and even more on the horizon), because Cobra Sport have been rapid in developing a new 3-inch system to slot perfectly on the back of GPF-equipped models for optimum flow, without tripping that pesky engine check light.

Apparently, the engineers up in Sheffield (and no one knows about stainless steel like the Sheffield boys! – Initial G) spent weeks perfecting the sound of this tig-welded T304 beauty too, making it not only sporty and aggressive, but without a motorway drone that makes you long to stick your head through the windscreen.

They’re also currently developing cat back systems and de-cat pipes for when someone finally does crack that new ‘unmappable’ ECU! 

In the meantime though, we’ll mostly be loving this one, particularly with the bonus options of ceramic-coated or carbon tips. Yummy.
