i have had the whiteline rarb on for 7 years only now really seeing its benefit with the new bushings in the rear beam and moving the adjustment up
one thing to note the whiteline RARB is made from s**t aussie steel went rusty in 2 years :(

manifold and 200 cell cat is going to be the best buy as you will get more horses
rear springs and RARB will just improve ride height and handling :)

i did want to get chris tullet manifold and 200 cell but i think i might wait until i can find a group buy or I can borrow my car to someone to let develop a manifold and a 200 cell and they said they will do the manifold for£250 and 200 cell for £150 but i don't know if i should borrow them my car because there work might be a load of crap

The best performance mod I've done is the manifold. I have the piper one but as they don't make them anymore it'll have to be a second hand one. If the exhaust company is a reputable one then the manifold and sports cat for £350 is a great deal.

Mine has started to go rusty as well. Seems like the coating on it is fairly soft, and chips really easily.

I bought my RARB when it was on offer from Courtenays. I'd wanted one for ages, and when it was on sale, I bought it without a second thought. Totally transformed the VXR, even Amy noticed a difference, and she is normally oblivious to things I do to the car (unless they make it louder).

The only performace modifications I have made are k&n filter, piper manifold and a 2" cat back. I had my car rr'd at pvs and made 154bhp. So there are good gains from these mods

bin to the exhaust shop to day and we can't agree on a price as he wants me to advertise his shop by putting links to his shops on my posts on forums and he wants to put a sticker on my car

Well if he is using your car as a donor car to measure up and fabricate jigs for future custom on other astras and your going to be without your car for maybe a week. I would personally expect a significant discout. Unless this is a custom one off job then basically he can charge what he wants. And make sure a life time guarentee is included too lol
