    I'm in Kent but looking at supply only as I can fit myself so I was thinking along the ones of mail order. I've heard of Bosal, Timax etc. but wonder about quality and fit as well as value for money or any other recommendations?

    Any backbox, mixed with a light sprinkling of an angle grinder and just a touch of a mig welder, will fit any car. Mine is a Cobra Supersport(never heard of it before) from an Escort from a scrappy. It looks better, sounds gorgeous and only took about half an hour to make it fit.

    Can't really justify the cost of Milteck on my 126k miles workhorse, which is why I'm looking for standard, value for money back box. Come on, loads of you must have replaced exhausts, what did you replace with?:search:

    The 'bodged on escort exhaust' looks just like someone has bodged on an exhaust off an escort !! Bosal is reccomended, ive fitted plenty to various makes and they always fit well. Failing that, i drop them off to an old mate who makes them for a living, RJ Tuning but hes in birmingham so a little far for you.

    Sandip that back box doesn't look right, where's the twin pipes?

    Do they do twin pipes at pipeworks?

    I know The York.

    I grew up just around the corner from The Sharmans Cross pub but I've got a place in Olton now (just around the corner from the train station).

    I saw this on an A4 parked outside RSD, not to my taste but I can appreciate the work that has gone in to it.
