    confused diffuser/ exhaust help.......

    Hi all I need some advice
    I finally put my vxr diffuser on today and took car to motor care to get my new exhaust put on, when I picked the car up the guy had removed it as the exhaust rubbed against it,
    I was wondering if you can get larger rubber mounts to allow exhaust to clear the diffuser coz i really want it on my car lol
    Plz help

    The VXR exhaust sits differently to the stock SRi exhaust, as in the tips are slightly closer together. I have twin stock pipes coming through the VXR diffuser, they only just touch is on the outside edge's but dont cause any problems.
