    Newish exhaust and an update on my car

    As subject here are some pics of my car with its "new exhaust" well I say new, but it's been on the car since the 10th, but I've been waiting to put my BBS's back on as I didn't want to take a pic with the standard wheels on [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/lol.gif[/img] It's been custom made for the car which meant cutting into the bumper as I wanted the OEM look [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]




    Facelift lower spoiler:






    OMP lower strut brace:






    Basically the thinking with the lower strut is that this is the lowest part on the car. So I will hit that before I hit the sump [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]


    I've also got the facelift front lights and wings + loads of other parts, but more on that at a latter date [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

    Dude, SWEET! that exhaust looks brilliant! Nice one. Good idea on the strur brace too!

    have you photoshopped the sideskirts black again or are they now actually black?

    Not Photoshopped the sideskirts black. That's how they have always been.

    I know what you are saying mate I've seen it all before, but they have started using a higher grade stainless now as they realised they had a problem. So mine should be OK it's also got a lifetime warranty. So I am not concerned.

    Its good to hear that they've realised the problem with the steel. Me buddie had his exhaust rebuilt last week so hopefully his will be fine too. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ok.gif[/img]

    They actually normally use 409 grade as standard, but I paid the extra and had the lot made from 304 grade tubing just to be on the safe side.

    It's a CAT back system without centre box.

    I'll see if I can get my mate to film it so you can have a listen. It does sound good though as one of my mates drove it for me so I could have a listen [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]
