Im looking to get a stainless backbox for my 218iS but i dont know which one to go for. Does anyone else have one or know which company makes them? I was recommended a Magnex but it doesnt look like they make them for the iS. Im not looking for any sound or performance increases as its quick and loud enough (at motorway speeds) already. Its mainly for cosmetic purposes.

janspeed do them, as do xpower, loads of companies do justback boxes, but very few do full systems.

with a backbox alone you wont get much performance increase anyway as much as exhaust manufacturers claim, your obviously after a quiet exhaust so trip to Powerflow would be ideal, they can build you a backbox to how loud you want and choices of tailpipes. Plus their stainless steel come with lifetime warranty as long as you own the car, Peco Backboxes are pretty good, mate had one on his car, didnt make much noise at all when sat inside car, just had a nice subtle sporty sound.

Well i cant get a trim because the tail pipe has fallen off!!
I guess i could do the trim thing and just get a standard box but the trims seem to go rusty after about 3 month and they always seem to weld on. Ill probably keep the car for about 2-3 years so i was thinking of the box lasting til i got rid.
