    what exhaust do you recomend?

    okay, iv got a astra 1.4 16v mark 4 as a run about and the backbox is now blowing and the centre section doesn't look great,

    do i just buy a new centre section and back box - oem
    or do i get a stainless put on and if so what price am i looking at?

    dont want anything fancy as iv got my show car im building and this is just a work run about that i do 300-400 mile a week in.

    I wouldnt bother spending a large amount of money on a full exhaust system on a 1.4 matey. The only models i would is a turbo/V6.

    Just get a standard centre section and a nice backbox made up

    Yea i wouldnt waste money on a whole system either, 1.4 aint worth it. I have a 1.4 myself and ive got the irmscher twin exhaust from an sxi goin on when i can be bothered to fit it!
