    Twin exhausts (one each side) only come as standard on the 2.0 Turbo, 2.2 Direct, 2.8 VXR and 3.2 GSi petrols and 3.0CDTi diesel.

    Twin exhausts was never on the factory options list, although as john.robertson2 has said any main dealer would fit them (for a high price !). I am considering this modification on my 2008 Elite 1.9 CDTi but it certainly will not be done through the main dealers.

    I thought the very late sri's could have them on all but the 1.8 engines, otherwise yes it was 2.0t 2.2direct and gsi and vxr.

    As mentioned, you can take them across from one car to the other without any issues, it all depends on whether it looks like the factory exhaust or some aftermarket work. Any pictures would be useful...

    My 2008 Elite is a specced up version having first been a Vauxhall Management car at Luton (I only managed to get this one as Vauxhall were unable to supply a new one to my specification and customer services got involved). Whoever specced it up knew what options to pick (VXR body kit, 18'' wheels with SRi suspension, non option SRi tinted front and rear lights e.t.c.) so if the twin exhausts were available from the factory for a 1.9 CDTi 150 I bet my car would have them.

    If I do get mine done they will be quiet Powerflow with VXR tips and done at Demon Tweeks, Wrexham (my son works there).
