got the exhaust fitted today sounds nice.....when i picked the car up i noticed they put a chrome tip on it free of charge :D


That's always cool. I had the rear section changed on my EB I6 Ghia to include a resonator as i was illegally loud without it, but i didn't get a free chrome tip, they wouldn't even remove my old one from my old pipe (which i took back) and fit it for me. I haven't got around to fitting it myself, but the car did look better with it.

Got some pics of the tip?

Cheers

The 5lt can be fun if you have a manual behind it & it has had at least a little work. I can't wait to get my Xr8 on the road, having taken it for a few short spins makes me want to get out & open it up some more.

Cheers
