    Hi,

    Wanted to get some info on if anyone has fitted a longlife back box to their car? I am looking at getting one with twin pipes, you can see what I am looking at here and the page after it http://www.longlife.co.uk/products/tails/Default.aspx

    I think I have got a good price of £200 all in?

    I will ask for it to be made as quiet as possible but my only worry is will the dual 3 inch pipes look to big on my car? 330i pipes are 2.5inch each these are 3 inch each.

    Be great to get your views/opinions please as I am really struggling making a decision on this one.

    Thanks for that. I want it to look as close to oem as possible so would you say 3 inch pipes would look to big? I am also looking at scorpion exhausts that are 2.5.

    £190 all in. I want the twin pipes to look as standard as possible which they said they can do using proflow trim. Are they particulary loud as I want the quiet options. Spoke to a man called Charlie really nice guy.

    custom made can normaly be made as loud or quiet as you want withing reason of the engine note of coarse. as for styling its up to you how big you like them i think mine are 3 inch if not 3.5 rol tip rectangle jobbies
