Some may remember the exhaust fitted to my car when I bought it:





Got a new custom backbox fitted today:




Only decent pics as it started to rain.

Just my Depo headlights to fit now.

What do you think? Opinions welcomed - good or bad.

I personally think it looks 100 times better than it did.

Cheers!

Didn't like the other one and this is only slightly better. Can it be raised at all?

looks exactly the same!

1. To Big
2. Should be at least a single, not double pipe
3. Sits to low
4. Sticks out to far

Sorry to be blunt but there my opinions!

Looks alright, i'm not a fan of big exhausts though.

If you like it, then don't listen to other peoples opinions

Whats the next plans for the car?

How does it look exactly the same. Completely different. Wow a single exit exhaust on a corsa. Done to death.

Entitled to your opinions I guess but I disagree with 1-4.

Is everyone on CS a hater

I love it mate. I just wondered what people thought. I can take critiscm. People hate my ripspeed wheels to but they're staying. Just need some 195/45/15's as opposed to 195/50's.

Got my Depo's here. Going to fit them tomorrow. Smoked side repeaters and that's it

Thought about taking rear wiper off?

Try raising the exhaust a little bit, if its possible.

Rear lights?

see if you can get it raised a bit so the gap between the bumper and the exhaust is about 5 - 7 mm

other than that, looks lots better than the old one

I use my rear wiper, couldn't really do without it. Might be the way I have taken the pic, but it doesn't sit that low.

175 for the backbox, fitted and also modifying the pipework to clear my rear axle since I lowered it 60mm.

Marmite I suppose. Didn't expect everyone to like it.

look's better than old one but

it look's too big, if you want that size tail pipe i would of had a single..

if you wanted a twin outlet, i would of had the outlet's slightly smaller..

still an improvement though

that sound's a biut much....

could pick up say a magnex backbox, that would clear the rear beam when lowered 60mm..


i bought my whole cat back system for 100, and it clear's the beam, when dropped 90mm on rear, with no mod's too it
