    Also the company that is selling the valance, does the normal plastic one (not carbon) for £100 cheaper, but they dont list them for sale, just give them a bell

    yeah i did / do. wasn't sure if it would just look too much tho. I made an offer on the m3 quad exhaust and it was sold, so that was descision made for me.

    Think is more of a safe bet, and I think looks very good, and fairly cheap too

    FWIW mate, I agree. Less is more, and that will make a nice subtle modification. With the rear valance it will look cool.

    Cheers mate, I'm with you on all the way on the less is more. I think that combination will suit my car nicely.

    It runs and sounds the same as it did with the standard exhaust on and it has no back box's

    No down sides at all, imo looks awesome (better than 4 pipes out the back) but cant vouch for that exhaust on ebay as i had mine made
