    Magnex system on 2002 SXI 1.6i

    Hi, just wondering has anyone had fitted a Magnex "Cat back" system fitted onto a 2001 onwards Vauxhall Astra SXI 1.6i?

    Magnex state 1.8 SXI only on the website, but I've been told this will also
    fit the 1.6i version as it's the same diameter exhaust bore.

    Can anyone confirm this please or give me some pictures of one fitted.

    Many thanks

    Pete

    I live in manchester mate.
    Just try ur local garage mate. Its a direct fit for the Astra.
    Or go to a kwik fit or a National Tyres store.

    Not worth the bother really.
    It is easy but a fair garage is only guna cost £20 Max.
    N atleast then you get a bit of warranty, coz if it falls off its there fault
