    scorpion exhaust, tailpipe to long??

    ive just fitted my oval scorpion exhaust to my astra hatchback and the tailpipe sticks out 4 inches from the bumper, has anyone else got this backbox?, and how far does yours stick out from the bumper? tried ringing lmf who supplied it but there closed until monday.

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    Sounds like you got a saloon/coupe backbox as their tailpipes are longer - the hatch rear overhang is 130mm (5 inches) shorter than the saloon/coupe.

    yeah i think your right it is a coupe one, but seeing as lmf are shut till tuesday and im showing with vauxsport at pv on saturday/sunday it looks like i'll have to get the tailpipe cut down and tig welded back on, otherwise i'll be going to pv with no exhaust.

    I'm sure LMF will send you a replacement out on tuesday if they got the parts mixed up, to be with you wednesday if you give them chance. There really good chaps like that and will understand the situation.

    i was going to give them the oppurtunity to put it right first tho mate, but if i cant get it sorted out by friday im gonna have to cut it down as there's no way that ive spent the last year building my astra to go to pv with an exhaust that hangs 3 foot out the back of the car!
