166 backbox

just a brief visit to recommend MIJ performance in walsall for their excelent service in making and fitting my new rear box, although its a little louder than i hoped for(but not much) it looks great and to be honest sounds great. the car feel a bit more responsive and considering the quotes i recieved from other places, ranging from 240 for aftermarket mild steel to 450 for genuine part, i thought 196 for a custom stainless steel with lifetime guarantee was pretty damn good. took 3 hours from start to finish but i got to watch the golf so didnt mind at all only downside is they dont have a direct replacement tailpipe so mine is now slightly larger than original, but not chav in saxo size, they have about 3 options for the 166 but if you source your own they will fit it.

Re: 166 backbox

That sounds excellent value, now they have done yours and have all the sizes etc, will they be able to mail order for self fitting?

Re: 166 backbox

not sure, give them a ring. might be a bit more expensive as they give a 25 discount for people who travel to see them.
