I wonder if it'll fit a 1.0t ? may get one and see,
I could measure the inside of it, prior to me fitting it, if you like? I paid around £21 for mine off Amazon with free delivery, if you don't have prime, which I don't.
Please, :)
just ordered a set of these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Canbus-LED-S ... 3117934312
could have had dynamic ones but went for the solid in the end
Like them, would look good on a black or red car.

I was considering them Valer but I didn't think they'd look right on Flip-Chip so just went for the LED bulbs instead. I do wonder what the point of the dynamic ones are for the repeaters as they don't exactly point in the direction of travel ! Obviously just a styling issue.........and I already know I have no style at all so no surprise there :lol:

Glad to help Valer.

Btw for anyone wondering, the place I got them from is HERE . Seems to be the cheapest place I could find for them and they actually work :)

He's a pic of mine for comparison. Width of tip around 6.5cm, depth around 9cm (measuring from the back of car towards the front). Hope that's helps?
Also took a pic of the inside of the new exhaust tip too.

I have now fitted the TRX 86 exhaust tip properly.
It is quite an easy tip to fit and there is a bit of adjustment to align the tip to suit the rear of your car.

It makes the rear of my SRI look a lot better. It is a shame the cars did not have some sort of exhaust tip fitted as standard like the Corsa's or 1.6t models.

I have attached some before and after photos.
Just fitted the new exhaust tailpipe and happy with it, thanks for posting the info within the first place.

The exhaust tip looks really good and makes a real difference to the car.

Zero.
I'm going against the hidden "out of site, out of mind" exhaust tip green revolution, introduced by the manufacturers.

:D

But a hidden exhaust emits a lot less pollutants than one with a visible one :lol:
