I bought one yesterday, $21.95 from supercheap. It says stainless steel, they even lent me a tape measure so I measured the inner and outer diameter of my tailpipe then got one that was the right size. I just got a single one that was even angle-cut at the tip the same as my existing one. To fit it just pre-drilled a couple of holes at the front end of it at an angle that suited, then put a touch of grease on it, rag on the end to protect it and tapped it on with a block of wood and hammer. Once it was all the way on I drilled through the exhaust where the two pre-drilled holes were and used two pop rivets to ensure it wouldn't come off (probably wouldn't have becsause it was a tight fit.) Took maybe 20 minutes and looks awesome.

it curves, so it fits nicely, got mine for free and fitted from an exhaust place when i got my exhaust done :p. Mine was selling for $90, supercheap is prob the way to go.

ive never seen one of those b4 but they do look good.
isnt there a law where u cant have a up swept exhaust?
or was that just BS?
yeah mate thats right, there is an adr rule stating, something along the lines of, if the exhaust goes out so far from the rear bar it must be pointing down at 45 degree angle or something, not up haha. but if i found one i'd put it on :yeah:
