Cheers, am considering going down the dual exit route, though not sure if the second pipe will be just for show or if i can get an actual second backbox connected.

What they do is use a back box with 2 exits, they then route a second pipe around the spare wheel well and out the other side.

That might look a bit odd, especially on these cold mornings when theres white plumes of water vapour only pouring out of one exit.
I know, i probably won't do that but was just thinking about doing it for budget reasons. I'm not sure what my backbox is, i dont think its standard though.

Best picture of it i've got im afraid

Is there not supposed to be a piece of plastic trim between the bumper and the metal heat shield (possibly comes with the heat shield?)

There is a plastic gasket between the heat shield and the bumper, you can just see the edge of it in the pic.

Have you already got the necessary pipe for the second exit, what have you used/bought? will you match up the finishers? Plume by me are very resonable and accomodating when ive needed exhaust modifications and have charged me £35 to slice an all in one custom exhaust for me in the past and weld gaskets on [that i supplied] to join them back up. Not saying drive to brum but i do know some plumes offer that service.

If you do go the twin exit route i would consider fitting an actuator like on the TF's so that you can cut one off for those dronie motorway journeys. Theres a thread somewhere where a guys actually done this.
