Hi, just wondering if anyone's ever used a Hoffmann race tube and if they're any good, sound nice etc or would I be best off buying a sportex race tube? Thanks

It's simply a centre section without a silencer fitted.

Manufacturer/brand will hardly make a difference.

I have a Hoffman centre section but with silencer on my 206. Seems decent for the money.

Bought the boot badge off a website but can't remember which. And I got the mud flaps off someone on here.

1k
Fresh mot going on it this week.

Has remote central locking, new clutch not long ago. New gear linkage. New exhaust. Oh and a £650 engine rebuild last summer after the camshaft snapped

I've never seen a corsa so straight and rust free, it's perfect
