    Finally found the backbox I like...

    After looking through gazillions of pictures of astras with the reiger rear bumper...I finally found a backbox with the tailpipe shape that I like...



    ...seen lots of ovals, squares, circles...but nothing like this...anyone know a company that will make this shape?

    ahh that looks nice...didnt realise brett had it on his car...

    yay!!! exhaustUK were just taking the backbox off a vxr as I called them!! brand spanking new for £60 delivered very happy!!

    the guys said he'd be able to fit it to a remus centre pipe for around £80-100 as its 2"(remus) to 2.25"(vxr)...how do they go about doing that? is it just a connector piece?

    also...does it matter that there is a difference in diameter?

    update: TopGear in coventry will fit the remus and backbox...which requires the remus pipe being flared slightly at the end to get it to 2.25" for £45

    they also said that there shouldn't be any drop in back pressure as the difference in diameter is far back in the system...also the difference isn't that much anyway

    so thats £165 for Remus centre piper + VXR backbox + all fitting...never wanted to fork out £300+ for a full system tbh

    engine is on the way to being sorted too...so I'm pretty happy today
