    ph2 172 backbox

    My exhaust has just started blowing and my car now sounds like every chav's corsa. Would anyone recommend any oem style backboxes other than a Genuine Renault one? I know stainless is the way to go but it's just the backbox and I don't want to spend several hundred £ on the car at the moment.
