Its a Piper 4" slash-cut Stainless Back-box. Sounds nice and deep and looks nuts.

CorSRi_BT, Is the SRi not 20mm lower than the SXi as standard? So is your car lowed 50mm compared to a standard corsa... or 30?

Yeah, I meant 50 or 30 mm lower than a bog standard corsa! Yeah 10mm lower than standard Sri. So does the Sxi come lower than most corsas as well? Or just the Sri? My Sri is arriving by the end of the week, woohooo!

SXi suspension IS NOT lower then any other corsa models,

the SRi is the only model int he corsa range with a lower suspension on it.

My wheels are 17"x7" with no rubbing at all et 45

J11 ESY has -40mm with the same dimension and offset alloys also has no probs with rubbing,

i was thinking of coil overs, but be warned... the ride wont be nice.

Danny - that pic of your car on the kerb - surely the kerb makes it sink into the arch more than it does on the flat?

Yeah, SXI has harder shocks i think but not lower - only SRi. my mums Corsa C SXI - she thinks her ride is as hard as my Corsa B's Eiback kit ride

Yeah I wondered about the wheels, and now i notice the grille and mirrors aren't right either. Those are the Sxi wheels. It's 1.8 Sri painted calipers tho, but that's easy done.
