What exhaust are you trying to fit and is it a full system or just back box ?

Well to be honest Brian.

I don't really know.

I wanted to either make an extension from the original back box ( for simple appearance purposes)

or get rid of the back box and find an alternative.

I didnt want to get rid of the original back box though as (i know this may sound silly) thought it may disrupt the cars performance.

i have only had it 2 weeks and dont want to !Removed! it up.

cheers.

I no I'm from the midlands as well don't worry :) I want to put an exhaust on mind but I didn't no if it would get rid of the tax free ? Does anyone no if it would I heard that a re map will give u more performance but I was going to get a full exhaust system then have it remapped

oh i see and where abouts in the midlands are you from?

i think having it remapped would remove the tax free... which i wouldn't want to do unless i have too.

wanted to try and receive a bit more sound and actually see an exhaust - what colour is yours?

Still confusing what you really want, but iff you want to improve the looks your going to have to change the deffuser.

Brian - From Stourbridge - Black alloys with a white paint will look nice.

Ideally Gary, i wanted to improve the sound whilst having the exhaust on show (for appearance).

Whats the damage on a diffuser?

Havent recieved the mudflaps yet still waiting for them.

I put the link on the thread for mods for the mud-flaps (getting black pvc) ones in which are rally type design.

The dog was actually for my mother.

My parents wanted a little dog as they were struggling with funds so i kindly brought it (wish i hadnt as hes a little nightmare).

It really is a present, as im only 20, and had to move back in with them for a few months as i lived at uni.

Considering they have had me back for a while, i decided to buy him (Teacup Miniature Yorkshire terrier with crufts papers).

I run my own business so until my funds come in at the end of the month - i cannot get the diffuser purchased.

Why was you thinking of getting mudflaps yourself?

As soon as i get mine. i will take pictures and put them on here.

I have exactly the same but in white and without the dab radio but I didn't pay for my extras like the 17 and privacy because the sales rep through them in for free :) yeah I was thinking about getting these mudflaps

Yeah I like the blue ones I have paint my callipers and drums in blue already and thought that when I paint my alloys the blue mudflaps will look good and yeah there universal have you got a link to the ones you have bought I would like to see the ones made to fit.

I got a newbie sales rep and I was his first sale so he did loads for me and we still text now can't believe how much better the customer service is at ford than fiat.

Also if you ever want your alloys painted I work at a powder coasters and will get you a good deal I will post a pic tomorrow of the colour I'm going for

It wont change the tax bracket of the vehicle.....once it has been remapped it should actually run more efficient ;) unless of course your pedal only has an on and off position lol

William - Thanks haha.

Brian - Very handy will keep that in mind - i will post pics on here soon as they come on the mudflaps

Gary - Now thats nice. If you dont mind me asking - what did you pay for these items (ST DIFFUSER / TWIN OUTLET)?

As i would probably have to respray the diffuser in copper pulse.

Are you achieving any more sound? - (not that it would really matter as the design is what i like).

Also im assuming the diffuser just clips on? - i have a spare wheel i hope that wouldn't get in the way.
