Depends on the car of course though.

Won't get that many pops and bangs out of it or noticeable gains in power being such a small engined car but for a bit of noise there a good cheap exhaust system.

I've got the same thing on my Astra


It's a C16SE, 4 branch and de-cat with the cat-back sportex system, sounds really nice. It's a good fit too, fantastic value for money.
