    Pics of aftermarket backbox's on MK4 Hatch's?

    Looking at getting a new backbox soon since the second skin on my original exhaust has corroded, causing rattling noises while driving/changing gear etc..

    After an aftermarket one now, just looked on the bay at the Sportex and Cybox ones, and also the Scorpions etc.

    Was interested in an Irmscher one but there isnt many about and brand new they cost alot!

    Quite like the look of the 4" Slash Cut Jap Style Sportex one, think it would sit nicely under the bumper on the hatch, and its only about £100 delivered.

    Anyone got any pics of the different backbox's on there cars?

    Jimmy I like that alot! And im thinking of going to a GSi bumper when one becomes available anyway. What brand is it, and where did you get it from etc?

    Yeah irmscher is over priced for exhausts and the scorpion ones look nice.. Thinking just a single pipe though now..
