Hi andrew,
If you look under your existing bumper setup you will see the same two tabs supporting the bottom of the rear bumper,
You need these tabs in place to support the bumper,
I suppose it is in cases like this; the genuine rear diffuser is better because it comes down lower than the existing bumper rather than just sticking flush to it.
So you would have space to cut.
However it is possible to have the exhaust pipe adjusted and extended to peak out without cutting the panel.

No prob thanks,
It shouldn't cost more than 60 pounds to get a tail pipe made to go from the back box to a tip under the diffuser,
The main impact on overall cost would be your choice of metal and tip.

Thanks very much, they are 110mm x 60mm piper oval tips, that's 4.3" x 2.4" inches they looked great when new but now black with carbon, I'm looking for advise on keeping them clean (in another section of the forum)
Considering changing the tips to slash cut RS style so the carbon isint as obvious.

Thanks Jay,
Its only a 1.6TDCi mate, I built it to a modified ZetecS and I'll never sell it, took 3 years, through 3 different jobs and every single spare cent to get this far, id be just as happy to mod a Mk1 1.4
You can purchase parts much cheaper aswell as a ford approved duplex exhaust.
Your model is over 500kg lighter and easier to modify.

But it's still a 1.4, lol, I used to drive around in a 3.2 V6 Vauxhall Vectra B that was supercharged with 3.0 cams and a pipercross induction kit along with a 6x4 oval tip exhaust, that was a crazy car, lol
