    Default Need some advice

    I have just come into some money (12k to be exact ) I was thinking about selling the car but i'm gonna hang on to it for another year, I cant bear to let it go. so im looking to get an aftermarket exhaust.I am willing to spend 300 quid max, so what do u guys think i should go for?? Only problem is that i have an elite so i will have have to chop the rear skirt, has anyone done this?? If so have you got any pics?? Cheers

    Exhausts UK quoted £350 for a twin exit to fit a 3.2 V6.
    You could go for a smaller single exit exhaust and spend the difference on an SRi/GSi rear bumper?

    I am thinking about going down that route, these guys have quoted me £250 for a dual exit http://www.custom-chrome.co.uk/
    They made my exhaust for my pug 307

    lol, i had to tell the other half that my exhaust has got a hole in and i need a new one, i wonder if i tell her the bumper is knackered then she will let me get a new one . And while im at it i think all 4 wheels are knackered as well and it would be cheaper to get aftermarket 19's rather than standard 17's. You never know, she might believe me.

    Nope, she'll just call it a shed and tell you to buy another car, although you could say that the VXR is more reliable

    You only live once so make the most of it, you connot take it with you mate

    As said(DITCHP) go for another rear bumper and get yourself a dual exit system of some type, it is XMAS after all.

    12k and your limiting yourself to £300, just go and buy everything you want, don't tell the missus and then once you've got it on the car tell her you can't return it, thats the best way don't tell them.

    I think im gonna get an SRI bumper and twin outlet exhaust. I wasnt expecting this money at all. I was in the Peugeot pension plan when i was working at the ryton plant. They sent me a letter out saying that if i moved the my pension over to a private one then they would give a cash incentive. So as to not look a gift horse in the mouth i quickly accepted their offer, they even paid for me to have advice from a financial advisor.
