    Whats wrong here then?

    Just fitted a sportex backbox on my Zafira gsi, but for some reason it sits very low (about 2" below the bumper and sticks out 2" as well - just dont look right?

    Place i purchased it from aint much help either.

    is it on a sleeve or flange? if sleeve may just need pushing in furthur, and the handgers may just need tighter rubbers or pushing out slightly, dosnt look too bad though

    Going off personal experience of Sportex exhausts, they are never really an amazing fit, so its probably just normal.

    Looks fine to me though.

    your probably find if you bought the complete systym it would fit better as the mid section is shorter than a std one

    As sportex said to me once,there designed to stick out passed the bumper a couple of inches as they only do one type ie for any astra etc and have to accomodate standard bumpers and bodykits crazy i know!!!
