    i want a new exhaust...

    now i dont really fancy dishing out £300 for a brand new full system...i just want something that will look nice, finishing off the back end nicely, whilst adding a little sound...

    do i go for a new backbox? im guessing a tailpipe won't give me any sound but will look the same

    tailpipes are the worst. they're ok for a few weeks, until tehy start to come loose and rattle like a bag of spanners! if u want an aesthetic improvement just get a back box

    Powerflow could sort u out.. i know alot of people slate them. But quality is from the fitter! So if u get an idiot to fit it, it will be crap I have used them twice no problems and very helpful. If u want sound from the 1.8 remove the centre silencer completely lol, but u will want it quiter IMHO.

    if u want cheap and cheerful mate, marry a cheap back box with a Remus race pipe, £68 from LMF.

    And regarding powerflow, i think its divided opinion on here. i was due to get one but i looked at a couple of my mates, and it seems they use sub-standard stainless steel. it rots fairly quickly compared to other stuff

    Mines been one for over 2 years no problems with rot or surface rust? Maybe they used a cheaper grade of steel for their cars??

    what does a remus race pipe do? is that for sound or performance?

    cheap bacboxes...any recommendations? apart from powerflow...also where to get them from

    not too bothered about performance...if i want a quicker car i'm not gunna start modding mine...
