Ok so we got the magnex on FINALLY!!!, wasnt as easy as we first thought...it didnt fit on my standard middle box as it should have, we spent hours cutting more and more off, but apparently my middle box was a aftermarket one which was different to how the OE one would have been... so...

off the car went to have the rest of the system made up from 304 stainless up to the cat

the guys still ahd problems as when they attaced the rear hanger to the rubber it sat to the left and not within the cut out in the bumper!!!

so off came the mounting bracket and a new one welded on in a better position.

sounds pretty cool, not that loud which is how i wanted it, was a little worried with removing the middlew box, its no way as loud or as mean sounding as the custom mongoose on my jap car, but i really didnt want the golf to be loud :sick: so im happy :wink: :cool:

crap pic, took this on the way home after picking the car up, will get better pics up in the next few days including pics of the new genuine anniversary front Smoked fog lights, indicators and blanks, which all works out to be very expensive (but i got a deal from my mate at the dealers :wink:) and i will also get pics of the new momo steering wheel i should have fitted in the next day or so  :cool:

well we had a go ourselves untill we realised the middle box on mine was a crap one, so in the end it went to alpha in leeds who are a powerflow dealer, they did a good job, had the car for 3 hours, wasnt sure if it hangs down a centimeter too much :laugh: but its hard to tell with the car been so low, so yeah im pretty happy with it, and theirs no knocking what so ever and its a very good tight fit, he did say theirs almost no space at all to get the magnex type to fit, was a close call..

the momo boss didnt fit ffs, thats 2 i have had sent to me now which are wrong...the latest is for a airbag model, it has the same part number too which is confusing, so now i am on the lookout for a momo boss kit to suit a mk 3 without airbag...

annie fogs lights, blanks and indicators are all on now too, i have sealed them as a extra precaution with all this sh!t weather i cant be arsed with them misting up :cool

pics tomo hopefully if the weather is ok!

The magnex is also great with no probs, drove it to doncaster and back last night (from Leeds)... first impressions are good :smug:

Thats crazy the first one I got (off ebay) fiited straight on?

What's stopping it fitting? I'll try & get the part no. off mine if that'll help?


Really want a magnex exhaust or at least one like that - the DTM is getting boring, pretty damn loud!

Really like it it dude, looks good! :smiley:
