mmm the ebay item does seem too cheap to be good surely?? Performance exhaust pieces I would have expected to be much more than original parts.... but we are talk AR parts :)

i tried locating a replacement back box after mine rotted away. I ordered one through AR but got sick of waiting for it to arrive from Italy so in the end ordered a supersprint item which was slightly dearer but is stainless steel and should last a lot longer than the AR one. I was able to fit myself on the drive and im no master mechanic.

I'd be dubious of expecting a £50 backbox to be decent quality... it could be a false economy.

It's a universal one so stay away. They put cars in the title to draw you to them! I bought one for my last car and It came as just a straight back box and didn't fit very well. I know the on the 159 there is quite a sharp bend right by the backbox...

There are a couple for 159 on eBay which are not too expensive. Not Stainless though...

Just realised you have a 2L. Not sure if these would fit but can't imagine Alfa using a different size pipe...
