    Question new back box

    hi all i need some advice!
    i am looking into gettin a new sporty back box for my astra 1.6! i have seen a few back boxes on the net that i like the look of but this would mean finding somewhere/someone to fit it for me! or do i go to somewhere and get them to do everythin for me (as in supply and fit) and maybe pay alot more? what do you reckon guys?
    cheers

    Fit it yourself - it's only two bolts, and three rubber hangers

    i know there is a few places on ebay that do some back boxs mate gt3 i think is 1 of them then you could fit it yourself is cheaper than getting someone to fit it and supply it and it aint a hard job really

    Just go for any back box that takes your fancy really, as it's still gonna be restricted by the crappy OE centre section.

    sportex are mild steel are they not?
