    Very nice buddy I did the same too but with the VXR insert. Enjoy the wee rumbley noise from it.

    I can record a video but i don't know how to put it on youtube. If someone could tell me how, then I will post it.
    I asked the bloke to make it sound quiet when idle, but have some grunt when i put my foot down. My gf heard the car coming down the hill when i got home and she was in the lounge (back of the flat) watching tv, my foot wasn't even on the accelerator . Sorry to my neighbours for having such a brilliant exhaust

    Have you got the XP on your car? If so, how did you fit the VXR insert on?

    To fit the VXR insert you'll have to remove your XP rear splitter/skirt (couple of screws in each wheel arch and just stuck on everywhere else). Then you can remove your existing diffuser and fit your new one

    Me and the guy at MIJ tried this yesterday, but it looked like we were going to pull the whole bumper off lol. When you take the rear splitter off, does it ruin the bumper at all?

    You might leave some residue (from the glue) behind but you can take that off and it will need re-sticking with some tigerseal or double sided tape etc...
