    Default V6 Turbo twin tailpipes

    I have a V6 Turbo Elite and whilst it all looks very neat with the hidden tailpipes, I'd rather like to be able to see them.

    Has anyone done any mods to their V6 Elite so that the rear pipes can be seen, perhaps a different rear skirt added and part of the bumper cut away?

    Although, part of me likes the fact that it is a Wolf in Sheep's clothing and doesn't give anything away other than the little badge on the back

    OK thanks guys.

    Also, I assume that the rear valance at the bottom of the rear bumper comes off?

    Can I buy one of these - OEM with twin exit from Vauxhall or perhaps a VXR-alike from fleabay?

    I would only need to paint that small piece then instead of changing and painting an entire rear bumper?

    The rear boxes are already fitted of course, so that is a good idea Paul to get a local exhaust place to weld some new tips on.

    Uhhm ....visible twin pipes

    yep - all parts should be available from VX or even on Ebay

    i had my old 2.0T elegance rear valance replaced and tips welded on

    then about six months later a Cat back stainless system to improve the sound

    Are the twin exit valances interchangeable between any rear bumper?

    It would be nice to change only the valance if I can.

    Yes, I'd like to be able to hear that nice V6 burble - it's a bit refined at the moment but that is what the elite is all about I guess

    try the stealers .. the correct lower valance is only £30-40 ...

    BUT dont expect any change in the exhaust note by exposing them and fitting tips ... it wont make any difference ...its needs a free flowing stainless set up to make any noise

    No, thought this when i had a elite v6. Had to put a sri bumper on the car cause sri lower skirt is non removable and wasn't going to just cut the elite bumper cause would look bad
