  1. Original 147 backbox - Where can I find it?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello! Can anyone please tell me where I can buy a backbox for my 147? All I want is the original back box, I am not interested in performance exhausts etc. I saw a thread somewhere about the thing costing around 65 pounds, but I couldnt find anything on the net. If not online, I live in W5...

    Hi, Got my 147 about 1 month ago, but it's in need of a new backbox. I am after a stainless steel one. Have any of you guys got any recommendations? I have been given a URL to which stock quite a few. But not having bought a stainless steel backbox before...
  3. Back-Box

    ICE & Blue&Me
    I have unsuccessfully tried to clean up my backbox, it is rotten and beyond jazzing up, what I want is a new one I think. What I don't want though is an original spec replacement in mild steel, neither do I want a chaved-up Nova special, but something that looks like it is original but isn't...

  6. Changing the exhaust backbox

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    i've searched the threads on this. but basically, i just want to find out if there are any gains with just changing the backbox, or worse still, any losses. for me, i just wanna do it for cosmetic reasons as the stock exhaust backbox on the 147 is kinda ugly. but if it does lead to losses, then...
  7. 147 Backbox

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have searched the last couple of threads for advice on a new back box. Nothing seemed conclusive and nobody seemed to say"buy one of these its ace" So the question is this....... Existing original box looks poor rust / shape etc. Can somebody recomend a nice back box for a better sound and...

  9. 147 1.6 Backbox free to good home - nearly new

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    As per title I have a backbox from a 2004 1.6l Alfa 147 All I ask is that you come and take it away ! Nothing wrong with it its just taking up space after I replaced it with a Remus backbox. Its covered under 1000 miles so has plenty of life in it. Its silver by the way not a black one ;)...
  10. Backbox bought and fitted for €250. Is that good ?

    Alfa 155
    Hi all, My backbox has starting spitting and farting. I think the rust has given way and I need a new one. I have phoned around and even the mechanics are amazed at the very dear price, but they insist it is the correct price (I'm not surprised as Alfa's are usually a bit dearer). I am...
  11. Backbox of a 147

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    As we all agree the standard backbox (exhaust) is crap because of two reasons: 1. the hole in the bumper is too big so you see too much of the backbox 2. the backbox likes to rust Alfa Romeo has changed the backboxes for the 147. To prevent rust, they are from now on painted.... .... with a...
  12. Magnex Stainless Backbox £169. Anygood?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I know of a few Impreza's with Magnex systems and used to have a backbox on mine, good quality and a nice sound on the Scoob. Just checking their site and they do a stainless steel backbox for the 2.0 TS 156 for £169. Anyone tried or heard one fitted? :) Lee
  13. Exhaust backbox

    Alfa 155
    Hi guys, thinking of getting a different backbox. Looking on AO's shop there's a nice Supersprint with straight twin pipes, but it doesn't say it fits a 1.8 16v....only the one with the kinked up pipes say this (i'm not too keen on this look). My question is will the straight pipe model fit...
