How are you going to actually make it fit? From the pictures there is no pipe going into the rear of the silencer, or any hangers etc. You'd need to be an exhaust fabricator to make it fit.

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is, as the saying goes?:

I would expect the pipes for existing back boxes will fit them
See Specification given, I might just become the test case and gamble, dont forget the lifetime warranty, it must be to good to be true despite some good feed back on ebay ?
6x3inch letterbox style (a classic style) Stainless exhaust box. This universal back box will fit 99.9% of vehicles, we have not encountered a vehicle to date that we cannot fit this box to*.
This universal stainless steel exhaust box is manufactured from quality T304 grade stainless steel, currently the best grade available. This exhaust box is completely seamless, with tig welding not mig. Each exhaust box is hand polished, to a brilliant mirror finish - for the ultimate looks. As expected with a product of this quality, every box comes with a lifetime guarantee as standard on the stainless steel
Some vehicles may require additional pipe to add to.
And it’s always best to weld it on but you can clamp it on to via the fitting kit that comes with it

This will increase BHP by 4 - 8 as its a free flow performance exhaust that has been unrestricted and only minimum baffles in it also will increase the sound so you will get a deep sporty tune to it with out
Being to to loud
It hums on tick over and gets loud the more you put your feet down on high reves

See my other post....if it's not been specifically designed for your car and your engine, then it isn't going to do what it says...less backpressure = less bhp. Computational Fluid Dynamics, and associated air dynamics is NOT a universal fit. Do you honestly think a company with millions of euros ploughed into RnD would design a bad exhaust system on purpose?
