    Question Which exhaust?

    I am looking for a performance back box for my 1.6 SXI. I have got some choices in my mind like Magnex, Jetex, Peco...I want some deep sporty tone rather than those very loud one. Also I am still thinking of purchasing a full system or just the rear box as I dun wanna empty my bank account! haha...Could you guys gimme some suggestion? Is that a good idea if I just change the back box at the moment then purchase the cat-back later?
    CHEERS!

    I personally would save untill you could change the lot to be honest it will cost you more money to do it in stages. Also a lot of companies are sharp to this and tend to offer there back boxes as a slightly different fitment to the the full system, or charge silly money for the rest of the system.

    What style of system are you after? Design of box? Sound? power gains (not that you will get much)?

    My magnex back box sounded the same as standard.

    i would get a PECO stainless back box, from the factory( cut out the middle man) and you can chose what ever tail pipe u want! about £120-£140 or £220 + for a system.

    think he means cut out the middleman- as in from the factory you wont pay retail price for it like you would in a shop
    Any info on V6 MK4 conversions greatly appreciated!
