    Default Twin tail pipes on a 1.8 ?

    Hi all, i really like the look of the twin pipes on the Vectra and would like to do it to my 1.8. The first question i have is if the trim on the bottom edge of the bumper is easily changed for a proper vx twin pipe one ( i have no tail pipe showing ) ? Secondly, has anyone already done this, how did it work out ?

    Cheers, Jayson

    has anyone already done this ? jayson just do a search, loads done the conversion. if you have a sri ,you need the vxr rear insert (twin exit ) then visit a good exhaust company who make up exhausts.

    i fitted a single back box to MATT's car with the none sport's bumper, just cut the lower trim to suite the tail pipe and it looked great, he then later had a twin set up done and the company that did it just re-cut the trim to suite both new tail pipes..
