    Default stainless back box?

    Hey guys,
    ive noticed that my back box hangers are very rusty so need to replace it beofre it falls off.Ive been looking at a stainless one to avoid the rusting and have seen a nice sportex one but am worried its going to be too loud.

    Has anybody got any feedback on their back boxes or reccomend one that will look nice but not sound too chavvy?

    Thanks

    Had a Sportex on my 2.2

    Just a heads up these aren't stainless steel. Noise wise, it gave my car a nice deep rumble. On full throttle it was relatively loud, not in a boy-racer way though.

    cheers guys

    Im drawn to the sportex mainly because they do an oval pipe that looks the same as the standerd back box pipe at the moment.The last thing i want is to have a huge great tail pipe that a ferret could live in lol

    I have a 4" sportex on my cdti 150, It sounds a bit louder and you can hear the turbo whistle.
