Absolutely. It's been there a while now. And a BX won't take to kindly to having another BX dropped on top of it I reckon!

still recovering from my weekend "over there" so i have not had time to update everyone. Vanny has indeed got the beast up on ramps and got her running and it is sweet as a nut and although the exhaust looks a bit boy racer it sounds awesome

That exhaust seems to sit very low, does it touch the ground when you put the suspension on its lowest setting? Apart from that, it looks like a rally car exhaust :D

It touched the floor loading it on my truck but we overcame that by using extra bits of wood!

I suppose that the exhaust was a custom job - i wonder how much they would be if not :D

When the cx with maikonics kit and maikonics exhaust system is in low you can just hear the exhaust rattle on the floor a bit.

The cx sounds great though when you floor it and touch 5,000 revs :lol:
