    confused Veccy Estate Exhaust

    Hi Folks.. does anyone know of a single rear pipe I can get for my veccy estate (08 plate)

    It only seems to be dual's on sale on ebay etc...

    I am after single exit rear box that sounds good, looks good and if it gives extra performance, then great..

    Does a rear box for a hatch back not just fit on? you would think so...

    Also will I have to cut an arch in my exhaust? as current exhaust seems to be hidden..

    Any advise on suppliers or tips welcome... Thanks
    Rob

    The estate has a longer wheelbase than the hatch, plus IIRC the estate has the back boxes diagonally rather than parallel to the length of the car, unlike the hatch.

    Nope, normally the estate ones are parallel same as other models. Mine are diagonal now as it was done by MIJ when I had my CAT back installed to improve the flow of exhaust gases for a performance gain (minute as it may be) but the standard ones they took off where straight, parallel ones.
