    Posted this on another forum to mixed reviews which is good as that is what forums are all about!

    Had to do some thing different with my exhaust (long story) and it had to be a single exit so the following was crafted.

    Its the same size as an RS4 outlet although it does seem bigger in the pics!

    All comments welcome, negative or positive... the main thing to deal with is it being different, not another version of the twin outlet.... i know i'm struggling with that!

    The other issue i had when sizing the size of the oval was the smaller sizes looked lost in the gap left by the OEM twin outlets....

    Comments Away!

    PS - I have feelings so not too bad! :)

    I'm a fan of that style of exhaust, it looks good but i rekcon it sticks out slightly too far, needs to be tucked under a bit more I reckon :rolleyes:

    Actually that is a good point - if it was tucked further in it may not be so prominent and therefore work better - good spot Lee

    Reminds me of a Magnex exhaust I used to have on one of my old Corsas. Which is not a good thing!!! Sorry. Just prefer the standard twin outlets, much classier.

    it looks OK. If it was pushed more back into the bumper. I think i perfer the twins' though that reminds me of the JAP Scene.

    Doesn't look bad but the twin looks much better i think, i guess if you like it though it makes the car personal

    I'm not sure, i have think you have some lichen-moss growth growing within the block paving, maybe some industrial chemical cleaning agent would remove this, then brush some kiln baked sand over the drive for a new finish.

    Hope this helps.

    I agree but that was as far as they could get it back with the existing system. I'm not disagreeing with anyone that the twin looks better just i had no choice....

    Then again does the twin look better because its what we are taught to see? :whistle2::uhm:
