    Question Replacement Exhaust Advice

    Had the car MOTd today and passed with an advisory on a corroded rear exhaust box, which will need replacing soon.
    Had to think long and hard whether to replace with a standard box or change to a performance system- one nanosecond later decided on performance (of course).
    Now need help on what I should go with, any recommendations from anyone who has replaced their's already, name names, give prices, locations etc. Don't want anything too loud as I do high mileage, but still something that will increase power. Also I want to keep the standard rear bumper (car is 3.2 Elite) so will need turndowns on the exits.
    Lets hear your thoughts.

    Powerflow would be a good bet, cat back for some more performance, they will even cut a bit out of the bumper if you are feeling brave

    from cat back, he did this as a special price,whoever im sure his s/s backboxes are from £125 (custom made (size shape,sound) ,the "Y" section was £50. Im havin the rest fitted their as well.Im sure if you shop around you can puick up bargains.Its always worth askin a supplier if he will "price match". then give him these prices. ( they are from http://www.shopcreator.com/mall/depa...62/1/1/-/52162

    i was told that cat back would affect on the low end but great for high end torque. the exhaust shop recommend only replacing the muffler, any one pls advice.

    Only go to a recommended Powerflow dealer pref off here. Some dealers do no design, just make it fit. If you want a performance increase, then it must be fitted and designed properly.
