MGOC Spares is proud of our long-standing partnership with Double S Exhausts, through collaboration we continue to innovate and develop our offer to provide the last word in exhausts.

To demonstrate the quality of the brand and Double S’ ongoing investment in UK manufacture, MGOC Spares made a recent visit to their factory in Collumpton, Devon; going behind the scenes to show you the tremendous level of craftsmanship and skill required to produce the very best exhaust system for your classic. Managing Director, Andrew Goddard walked us through their extensive operation, emphasising their quality processes and high standards throughout production.
