improving aesthetics of 147 exhaust - invalidates warranty??

Love the back of the 147 but hate the amount of silencer that is on show . I've seen some alternative exhaust pieces but not sure what they are Anyone got any recommendations of a good 'un and does this invalidate Alfa's manufaturers warranty?

You're right Silver. That box is a bit to big...

Hans aka Selespeed had one with double pipe from Novitec. It looked SUPER and the sound was also very good.

Like Hugo said I had the twin pipe Novitec exhaust. Good quality and sound, yet expensive. The sport exhaust (only backbox) didn't void my warranty.

The brand CSC Marmitte make cheaper exhausts, but I don't know how they sound on a petrol engine, but the looks are good.

I replaced my exhaust with a novitec one (cat-back), and my alfa dealer havnt made any fuss about it at all. Infact 3 weeks ago i had a broken exhaust braket replaced on warranty!!!!!

So i dont believe it affects the warranty... unless their scared of me

I'm starting to think about a new exhaust backbox, simply because mine looks like I stole it off a ten year old truck by now: is there a stainless backbox which is (a) nice and shiny and (b) only as noisy as the original, or even better, less noisy? I prefer quiet - performance is always better when it feels effortless.

Last week I ordered the Sebring one. Just 267 euro inc vat and mounting. This week it will be delivered. And I asked my Dealer about the warranty, he said its no problem, even the replacement Green sport airfilter is ok.
