    i'm looking at replacing the backbox or maybe full system....

    Has anybody got a Remus exhaust? especially on a derv motor?

    what's your verdict?

    anyone got powerflow custom....any good?

    any other options that don't mean cutting bumper?

    I have been in talks directly with Milltek and they are just about to release a system for the 120d hatch! I know that the fitting and testing of the final system is being processed this week. They have just released one for the 123d and I believe they are going with the twin exhaust trim for the 120d which will fit without modification so you may wish to have a look at this option.

    Remus are very good and at the end of the day its all personal preference.

    I only know about the Milltek as my car is going into their work shop to have measurements and pics taken so that they can develop a system for the convertible.

    i spoke with AMD yesterday and had been told that. The cut out in the bumper for the pre 2007 cars is smaller than the later ones with striaght exit back box.

    Price will be ........£425 + vat for Cat back......

    Remus only offer back box which utilises the current mounts and bushings on the car. That's one worry i have about using a 'custom' build.

    maybe you're right but the earlier cars (pre 2007 and DPF on dervs) had a different one. Slightly smaller and rounder cut -out

    see my current offering attached......i added a trim to hide how crap it looked

    Ah, ewwww, sorry I know thats your car but yes that looks rather minging.

    Maybe you could get a current styled M Sport Diffuser which should fit I would think. Maybe get one cheap off Fleebay and then no cutting required and you can get something good looking out the back there.

    Are you thinking single or double trim?

    Hmmm well as long as you like it. I have to say that pic 4 makes it look a better fit and option than the first 3 pictures. How does it sound?
