Update:
Decided to adjust the tips for a better centering in the cutout.
Initially thought some oxy-acetylene heating would allow me to bend the stainless tail pipes - nope, too tough to bend even at red-hot.

Plan B was then to cut the tailpipes a bit shorter , adjust the polished tips up a bit and apply the oxy to the hangers so I could bend them to get the cans to sit higher.

Better result now. (BBB might approve? :lol: )

Yeah,they used to be.

Not sure if there was some brothers who ran them and they are retiring or sold the business with the rights to keep the trading name, and the Box Hill end was sold to someone separate?

I remember asking the Box Hill owner about it a few years back and I think that was the case, they were offloading the Box Hill site to reduce their business or something.

Hi David - sorry for late reply - I think you've already done this by now but definite growl/rumble, makes exhaust audible but can be a bit boomy in the wagon if you have a tune but Matt can fiddle his to improve a bit. (Stock tune doesn't make it boom noticeably).

Bit late to this thread, but thought I'd add my congrats to the others. I like the fact that you're a bit "anal" about getting things right, even if it means a few goes at it. (Reminds me of myself a bit ;) )

Not sure that there's a whole hell of a lot that can be done to tidy up the rear of a Gen 5 (What were they thinking?), but I must say, the way you've set up those pipes is a very good start! Looks great.

Thanks - I don't mind the Gen V look really - sure its not as elegant as the Gen IV, but the room inside makes it better. Handling is fine and the stock turbo has a bit more to give.

I think badly done pipes look shit frankly, as do ones with tips that are insanely big. I wanted to try to get a factory look that's subtle - difficult with the oval cutouts which are really only suited to single tips.

I added door bump strips which I think helps break up the slab sides. The front to me has come into its own amongst more contemporary cars with bigger headlights, but again not as elegant as before. A sports mesh grille make a good difference to me.
