    Is the unit upside down? Mine had pipes the same length coming out the box, so will be interesting to see how it looks with them staggered :watching:

    I thought I would have ago at fitting this myself this afternoon (just like an impatient child !!)

    Managed to reverse the car up on a set of ramps and noticed that I would have to cut the old back box off as it is all one piece what looks like from the cats back

    With saw on hand I cut the twin pipes

    [​IMG]

    The Eisenmann unit slipped straight on and a perfect fit, I used exhaust sealant past so just just a couple of clamps to do up and all done

    [​IMG]

    Then for the moment I had been waiting for !!
