    Which backbox?

    I've been having thoughts about putting a backbox on the Astra G estate. I don't want anything too loud but just a nice sporty tone. Does anyone have any ideas for what I need and if any backbox will just fit on considering the estate is a bit longer?

    Id say any you want if you remove the backbox alltogether its still pritty quiet as the centre silencer is massive.

    Edit*

    Irmscher ones don't sound any different to a normal backbox though, better off getting a gt3 or cybox off of ebay.
