    I'd Recommend a Cybox Stailness Steel Silenced Center Pipe alongside a Backbox they do. You can get a full catback system from their shop via ebay, cant remember the prices of the top of my head.

    I have the silenced center pipe at the moment, (cost between £60-£70) with the OEM backbox on my 1.6 untill I get a backbox and that gives a lovely note on rev. Not sure if the sound will vary much on your car, but I'd suggest Cybox Check em out on ebay

    mine sounds same as a motorbike
    its a realy nice sound n didnt cost much
    way u have 2 look at it is it mite be a big layout of cash 2 start off with but once its done u will never have 2 pay 4 another exhust again as it lasts a lifetime.
    mine was 260. a full system 4 mine wld be prob 120 and then in 2 years time i would have 2 fork out the cash agian 2 get it replaced if that makes sence 2 u m8

    Hi all i've got on my astra 1.6 16v twin cam red top is a powerflow backbox and a de-cat pipe and it sounds fantastic. Sounds nice at idle and at acceleration sound like a rally car its great!

    Whatever you choose, if you do go for a centre pipe make sure it is silenced to keep the noise down

    I second/third whatever Cybox, mine sounds subtle but nice
