    Eek Dealer quoted 282 for a back box !! LMAO

    The back box on my Vectra is getting a bit knackered, the outer case has corroded badly and I got an Advisory on the MOT last summer for it !

    When I was in the local Lookers to buy an air filter I asked them how much a back box is for an SRI with the visible tail pipe, I got a shock when he said 282 just for the part

    I've had exhausts last much longer than this in the past so it's not as though the quality of it makes it worth the money !

    So it looks like i'll be getting an aftermarket one when finances allow

    I got a price for right hand side backbox to make duel pipes on my 2007 SRI from dealers 275+ VAT. Seems like it's a bit of a rip off. Going for a stainless system now as it will work out cheaper.

    Looks like i'll be getting an aftermarket one then !

    It looks like the outer box has gone, a bit fell off it yesterday and the inside doesn't look too bad so might have some life in it yet.

    It looks like an exhaust bracket has snapped further along, just past the rear wheels/under the back seat area. Can these be welded back on ? or am i looking at a full system ?

    cheers !
