New backbox for alfa 147...ideas please!

Im looking to replace my backbox asap on my 03 147 2.0 as it has a hole that is slowly getting bigger (and louder).

I have been looking on ebay for a replacement, its looking like a stainless steel performance backbox is cheaper than the standard alfa one. Specifically this one 260443347468 (item number).

Will this need welding or will it clamp staright on. Also i dont want it to sound too loud....

What are your thoughts and any other ideas.

Cheers guys.

you will find it is about 9in shorter than the Alfa back box, so cut off 9in from your old exhaust and connect to the new back box using one of these|294%3A50

I have used this arrangement on my car, works fine you may have to trim out your bumper a little as the two pipes are wider than the single Alfa pipe

Try buypartsby on the web should be cheap enough and will be the correct fitment.
