    Anything louder than the standard exhaust for your car is technically illegal, it's generally not enforced though.

    The new limit for an SVA test is 99db, was 101 so I would guess that would be the limit for all ?

    it;s usually down to the police enforcing a noise disorder charge, i've heard 95db many times as a limit.

    That is correct.Production car must not be louder than a standard system. all limits listed are are BS unless it's changed in the last few weeks
    SVA has it's own limit.
