    exhausts can be very easy but also be and absolute nightmare to fit. i wouldnt try it unless you have a 2 or 4 post lift.

    get and exhaust place to fit it. they'll only charge you a couple of quid and it will be done properly. no need to get vaux to do it

        tbh mate ive never looked at the vxr exhaust as it was fitted when i bought it.

        it shouldnt be to bad as the car is newish so the bolts wont be too corroded. but you will have to take the centre section off when you do the front part so you may as well do it all at once

          if your struggling to fit spark plugs etc your going to have a hard time with an exhaust.
          let a garage sort it.
          its not worth chancing buggering it up.

            yeh i agree, even if it just somewhere like kwik fit at least there is someone else to sort it if it goes pear shaped.

              for once in my life im going to tell you to get someone to fit it for you, the rear box can be a pig to get to sit in the middle of opening in bumper,if you get it wrong it will burn through the plastic bumper. but if you go for it make sure the reducesing pipe is remover from the exhaust if you fit it all, if you only fit the cat back you will need it in place as the new cat is bigger diamiter than old one.

                      good move
                      hope it goes well. 30 squid sounds quite resonable!
