I got it from www.tuning.co.uk bud. its the 4" tip one Mines got a remus centre section too which gives it a very nice tone. Takes a bit of work to get it on due to the 1.0 having a slightly smaller bore but its worth it.

Go for it

Feel free to send the cheque to me Will have to save the cash up first
Am i right in thinking the 1.0's exhausts need a reducer?

Lots of people say you need a reducer for the remus centre section on a 1.0 but trust me you dont

On the 1.0 standard exhaust system there is a small piece of pipe connecting the cat pipe to the middle section. If you leave that on the remus centre section slides straight onto it bit of exhaust paste then clamp it up good and tight and your sorted. my doesnt blow at all does take a bit of work to get it on though

I got a reducer made at powerflow and never needed it in the end

atra ones are a bit of a big apparantly as they catch the charcoal canister on the drivers side, theres ways around it though, i prefer astra ones, but smoked corsa ones look good also
