    most people on here reccomend LMF - www.lmfvauxhall.com

    I don't have a coupe, but have been down the same road. The pipe you are talking about is the "Remus Centre Pipe" - do a search for that and you will find hundreds of posts/threads about it.

    And yes as it's name suggests a "CAT replacement pipe", is a swap for the current CAT!!

    Depends which engine type you have as well Tom, the earlier 1.8 X18XE1 has it's CAT halfway down the exhaust so yes you could swap this for another type CAT like a Sports CAT, the later Z18XE has the CAT on the manifold and the only way to swap this is to change the manifold for say a Lexmaul type which costs approx £630-800 depending on where you souce it. The Lexmaul does have a 200cpi Sports CAT in the manifold though and these are about £300 to buy on there own.

    The lower end was sourced from a supplier In Germany. It's 899 euros which at todays rate is £607 plus postage which was at that time around £23. May be a slightly different price due to currency variations.

    Link is http://www.lenk-opel-tuning.de/ and the ordering page is in english if you want it. I've confirmed with Lenk that the one offered is the Lexmaul

    It would cost you more to resend it in the UK than £23.
