Need to be careful though mate cuz the bore of the pipes may be different sizes.

I got a backbox off a 1.2i corsa b to put onto my 1.0 12v and my exhaust pipe was thinner than the 1.2's. Got it on in the end but took a bit of clamping & welding, bit of a hasstle (I only paid 20 for the backbox so I wasnt too worried) but if your going to buy a new one I would make sure its gonna fit nice cuz im sure ul be paying more than 20 for it.

Not at all ^^. That problem the guy had above can easily be fixed with a reducer pipe. The problem u will have is, and its not a problem, is the garage will need to weld on some bracket more than likely and they will charge you more money for the labour. Other than that its a piece of piss!

I got a universal backbox from Prosport UK and fitted it to my Corsa C and it has been fine, no rattles or anything and it sounds fine. Cost me 50 to get it fitted though when it would normally only be 10-20 for an actual Corsa C exhaust.
