Depends on your budget and what you want to get out of your exhaust, as for that stock SS UTE exhaust.. It would sound similar to the standard exhaust you have on right now, if not a tad louder. You will also have to get it shortened as the ute's are a bit longer than the sedans. IMO i recommend you use a single 2.5" cat-back on a stock motor, not only will it sound better it will perform better too :thumbsup:.

Mum crashed my car!
She had to quickly go somewhere and her car was in the shop and she wasnt concentrating...
Not major but it's noticeable..
Photo's will be up soon...


This further demonstrates that women cannot and should not drive!

lol....if a woman ...whos car was in the shop (for no doubt something that was her fault)....even if it was a service we"ll still say its her fault haha, theres no way she'd be borrowing my car, get upside her head n if she's damaged your front/back panels tell her the mechanic told you it has to be replaced with a safer bodykit (clubby or SS of course) lol...of course they arent safer but maybe this way you can score a free bodykit from your olds due to her terrible driving haha

As soon as i found out my heart dropped and a tear came out..
Ahh good thinking, well i can tell her i want to replace with another part get it resprayed so maybe try to pick up the SS.. haha

Surprisingly enough, it wasn't her fault the car was in the shop. It was a hit 'n' run. Most probably another woman applying some make up.
