    You can fit an aftermarket exhaust and cut out holes in your bumper valance to have it on show! It's been done before.

    Vehicle : Insignia

    Trim : SRI VX-Line Nav

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI [170 PS]

    Year : 2015

    Mileage : 27000

    As advised and my pm's, you need the SRI rear bumper and a VXR valance. The skirt of and SRI bumper can not fit an Elite one as it is bonded to the SRI bumper (this isn't problem) but you need to clip a skirt onto the Elite bumper. This is why the skirt of an SRI will not fit to an Elite.
