    exhaust tips ??

    Well .. cant really afford a nice chunky ''real'' exhaust at the mo, Had an tip when i bash the back of the car up, needless to say it was taken off and binned,

    Do i get a new one? Or are they much to tacky ?

    Its personal preference but for me a tip would not look good. The astra has quite a high arse so that anyone following can see the entire exhaust backbox and I can actually see my rear springs. Anyone following would see its a tip and laugh IMO. So I haven't bothered. Just take your time save up when you can and change the back box.

    Having just a basic exhaust just doesnt seem the same, i dont feel my girl racer self with out it looking ''nice'', will pop to halfords later have a look at there prices.
    Also while your all here ... i brought a sunstrip, dan went to sort it for me, and said ther was no sticky side - (of cause the geek thru the packaging away before i could look myself) does that seem right or should it have been sticky ?

    dont by one of those "stainless" exhaust trims from halfrauds cos they tarnish very quickly and soon go quite raw iron looking lol,
