Hey lads, finally got the rattling piece of crap exhaust replaced. Went to Lee's Exhaust, Moss Street, Slacks Creek. Was $245 installed plus $80 for my tip, while the larger store down the road wanted $340 just to install one with no tip!

Anyway, just wondering what the best way of looking after my exhaust? As in, how do I slow the whole rusting process? Cheers.

Here is a video of me starting the car up and giving it a few revs., pretty quiet as I did opt for a rear resinator, though it is loud enough for me.

Didn't get a directly behind shot unfortunately, looks best like that. Actually saw this tip on another member's car ages ago and really liked the look of it.

as for the aging process, thats really something that is out of our hands as far as exhausts go, they tend to do there own thing

Yeah Bridgestone RE92, so whatever width they are. My bro's has some Pirelli tyres, look wider compared to mine.

Only qualm I have with my tip is that I wish that had set it further into the bumper, if possible. So that that it sat more flush with the bumper.

Hmmm, sorry about that, seems it takes time to be processed or some s**t. I actually did upload, I can watch it from my profile, may just have to wait a bit.

EDIT: Video now working.

Lol, I know it does (a little). I expect that I guess, for a what I paid.

One day I'd like to get it set back further into the bumper, so get it straight then maybe.

I'll take a picture tomorrow, on flat ground, then we'll see clearly.
