    New exhaust piccys inside

    Got my new exhaust fitted today, it is a custom duplex from HIB Exhausts (www.hibexhausts.com) 2 3.5" pipes, I decided against the quads in the end as they looked a bit silly in the flesh when offered upto the car with the standard bumper, once i change the bumper I may change my mind again Its a cat-back, running from a central silencer and no backboxes, it makes a fantastic growl on start up has a nice chirpy idle and then the gates of hell open when you floor it, motorway speeds the volume is ok not too loud unless you put the hammer down It gives out an amazing wail as you accelerate too. I will get some better pics tomorrow when its light as it just wanted to drive it once it was finnished, i will also try to put a vid up of the sound.

    Before:



    First pipe is in place:





    Second pipe goes on:







    Apparently there was a brake force distributed for when you have stuff in the back of the car or something along those lines in the way so the normal route couldn't be taken, but Sean got around it and I got 3 cups of tea this time

    Huge thanks to Sean at HIB ehxausts, and all this for £330 with a lifetime guarantee and everything made before your very eyes.

    Next step, give the car a bloody good clean

    Its not 'huge jap exhaust on a 1.0ltr saxo' loud, its not quiet either but you decide how loud you want it, I wil post a vid of the sound, it doesnt set off car alarms if that helps.
