    New exhaust system

    Hi, I want my car to sound a bit sportier. Nothing too loud but with a bit of a rumble

    Can anyone reccomend me one, as cheap as possible please as dont want to spend much at all.

    Just buying a back box will not make a difference, am I right? I like the look of this tho.

    All I can say is that GT3 on eBay is highly rated here:

    Similar prices.

    This looks good, anyone know how easy these are to fit and what tools you would need.
    I suppose when its MOT time you just put the origional Cat back on, how easy is that?

    Thanks I mite buy this one if I can fit it myself.

    Anyone know how these sound as well, does it effect porformance?

    No worrie son MOT, cat is not in exhaust at all, you're replacing the exhaust from the cat backwards, not the cat itself.
