needs a new exhaust soon any recommendations for a sporty back box with a nice sound not boy racer just subtle or stick with oem
If you can fit it yourself, or know someone who will do it for you, try here; http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Custom-Exhausts
Yes, I know it's fleabay, but I used them this time last year, travelled 90 miles round trip to have a stainless steel backbox fitted for £130 - lifetime guarantee.
That was £120 cheaper than the local tyre and exhaust centre!
They sell via ebay (which was how I found em) but they also have two centres where you can pitch up and have the work done.
Took em just under 2 hours to fabricate and fit to my 156sw.
Mine sounds gusty, but no where near as vulgar as most scobbie's.
Hope this helps, enjoy the car!

Used Shell oil 5 W /40 ultra synthetic (the one with Ferrari logo on )on all cars last 600.000 km, bought it when it was on sale.
try the Ragazzon Italian stainless steel end silencer alfistnet edition it's 319 eur + 2 PU mounts blue ones
It doesn't seem to matter what grade too much either.
People use anything between a 0w-40 and a 10w-60 in a TS and seem to have little issues, although there is some evidence that using the thicker oils such as 10w-60 can increase cam wear.
"Some people believe that if a 30 weight oil provides good protection, a 50 weight must provide great protection. That's not necessarily true. If your vehicle was not designed to take a 50 weight oil, using one may not cause more engine wear, but it will likely cause an increase in engine temperatures. This can be just as bad for the longevity of your engine as increased engine wear"
