STI Backbox

I've just called in at Worcester Lexus (Subaru Service) and been offered an STI Backbox... Is it worth having one fitted? I must admit, he's offered a price I can't really refuse... 40-50 fitted :shock:

ps after all my other posts, does it use more petrol? lol ops:
and how loud is it?!

good price that triplezoney, do you keep yours too?

Would think that it will be a tad louder (more burble - unsure how much).... Is yours standard at the minute?

I've got the sti box on my MY00 I think the only thing it does is make the back end look a lot better with a single pipe rather than the twin pea shooter.

Not noticed any difference in fuel consumption or performance.

I've seen these on ebay starting at 50 with reserve not met. So I would say the price the dealer is letting you have it for isn't that bad.

Brillient site. Not just for cars either. Stefan has done a lot of walking in the Glen Coe area of Scotland. Superb photographs of the views. I to have experianced the delights of the Scotish highlands. Walking all day, finishing with a wee dram at the end. Just a puuurfec end to the day
