    iv just had a blue flame performance cat back fitted (last wednesday) to my SRi-T. Off the shelf it costs £225, but i had a custom back box made to make it fit in the gap at the back better, and that cost £325 fitted. Great sound as well

    i think the general opinions on here usually point towards blue flame performance

    yeah thats exactly what happened to mine, it was really on its last legs!! I was told there was no way i wuold pass its MOT

    When i went to blue flame they said i could have which ever tip i wanted. Now i was of the same opinion as u with the 6x4 oval, but when they showed it against it i actually liked it so i went with it.

    here's a pic......obviously every1 prefers different things

    yeah thats what i thought when i first saw it. Ahhhhh, i knew the tip wouldnt fit in the standard gap, so i bought the Prodrive twin exit valance from LMF. And i had that back box custom made because the off-the-shelf one fits too far to the left (apparently - summit to do with the spare wheel well). So i got it made to fit smack bang in the middle of the gap.

    Ya can make the off-the-shelf one fit with a bit of cutting, but imo it was worth spending a bit more money to get it spot on.

    All in all it has cost me a fair bit, but i am happy with the outcome
