Hello guys & girls,

Have been on here for a wee bit but thought I'd ask a question. I saw a Corsa 1.7 cdti recently with the same style of oval back box as the 1.9 astra which looked like a standard part rather than a 1.9 cdti Astra back box modified to fit and was wondering if such a back box exists since my Astra Sport Hatch is a 1.7 cdti aka the same engine is it possible to get said back box without having to go to VX and if so bearing in mind I'm in N Ireland, where can I go to get it for as with most 1.7 owners I have the "hidden" exhaust and would like either an end to fit over the hidden part to make it look the part a wee bit better or even a back box but even any of the ends to fit the downswept part of the exhaust seem to be ridiculously expensive. Grateful for any advice/pearls of wisdom anyone has. I know there have been posting on here before about back boxes for 1.7s but just wondering if anyone else had any new info on the matter.

Cheers

You should be able to pick up a back box from evilbay or from a breakers yard fairly simply buddy,
But I guess you will have to cut your bumper to allow you to fit it correctly

1.9 back-boxes fit onto the 1.9 with minimal modification. Any good exhaust fitters should be able to do this.

One word of warning though: the diffuser trim you'd also need does not fit onto a standard bumper, so you would need to find a salvage SRi bumper or buy one of those crappy alloy trims from Halfords.
