    Question VXR Exhaust?

    Folks some advice please.

    My mate just gave me his OPC VXR Nurburgring back box, I have an Astra Sporthatch 1.4 SXI will this fit? (I will be changing to a VXR bumper so that wont be a problem) or would it be better to get the full system from him as he has just put a custom one on his.

    Cheers

    Bore diameter is different on Turbo engines compared to N/A ones so wouldn't have thought it would fit without some form of modification or adaptor?

    Im ordering after Christmas the VXR Front Bumper, Side Skirts, and Rear Bumper, Grill and 18" VXR alloys ... only had the car 3-4 weeks. . . What about yourself?

    I want the VXR look but not the cost's (car or fuel) since my partner is driving (learning) it's nice and cheap all round

    After Xmas i'm gonna get the 19" alloys and the front bumper and then a custom exhaust if i've still got the funds, already got the rear bumper, paid £250 +£10 P&P from ebay. Costs a right few quid but. I'm doing it cause i'm only and could never on earth afford to ensure a vxr :P. Keep me posted with what you do m8.

    Best part was I only paid 6k for the car, 18k Miles and emaculate, no marks anywhere, not even stone chips on the bonnet! What a difference if you travel 119 miles, my local garage wanted 9,500 for a 1.4 with 28k on the clock lol .... think NOT!
