    Remus Exhaust Note/Sound

    Hey all

    It's come to the time where i'm looking for a new exhaust for my 1.8 bertone coupe. I've always had a favourite exhaust note/sound and finally today i've found it on youtube and also luckily enough on an astra!

    I don't really like a deep rumble i prefer more of a sporty sound, this youtube clip has an astra in it with a remus exhaust.
    Am I right in thinking that remus would be the company i should aim for for this type of exhaust note? I'm already going to get a racing pipe from LMF and then need a backbox. Wheres the cheapest/best place to get remus backboxes from in peoples opinions/experiences?

    This is the youtube clip, does anyone elses exhaust note sound similar to this? Its a hard noise to explain, if so could you post your exhaust spec/make and maybe a video clip if you have it?

    Thanks

    I've yet to see another tail pipe like this on an astra. Any one else got one?

    I've got the same package as Danny has purchased from road runner as well. The remus center section and back box (as pictured by Danny)

    got both for £269 delivered from Roadrunner off ebay about a year and a hlaf ago.

    Can't fault the setup at all throttle response is better and its a nice sound but it is much more subtle than the video clip you posted and might not be as aggressive a note as you would like.

    Cheers
