Hi there, based in Southampton wondered if anyone could point me in the direction of where I could get a performance exhaust from, looking for cat back systems but can't find them anywhere. Or does anybody know what other models might fit the Paseo. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Nathan ;D

I would recommend having one custom made - Longlife are good if you have a branch near you?

I think I paid around 350 for my custom system. It sits lovely and sounds just how I asked - subtle burble but wakes up a bit when you plant it :)

EDIT: looks like your nearest Longlife dealer (https://www.longlife.co.uk/dealer) is in Basingstoke but you do have a Powerflow dealer (https://www.powerflowexhausts.co.uk/dealer) in Southampton. Personally I think that Powerflow exhausts are a bit crummy, but I'm sure there are other people that would say they're fine.

Sounds good - you decided what kind of exhaust tip / tone you're going for?

Not just yet, going down there hopefully next week to discuss plans and price. I wouldn't mind something subtle looking but mean and lairy sounding :P

Sounds like a good plan to me - hope you don't have to do too many miles in it if you get a real cannon though haha

Update on the exhaust, using an 'EBay special' Hornet kit and built my own! Due to the Paseos age, it only has 1 lambda sensor before the Cat so I braved it and went full de-cat, routing down and over the back  suspension unit was a bit of a hassel but with a couple 45 degree bits of piping from the kit and home made hangers she sits lovely. I went with 2in bore stainless steel piping with a 4in rolled tip backbox. End result; loud, lairy and looks like something from a low budget fast & furious film. Pictures to follow🤙

You might end up on a film like fast and the furious by the sounds of it! Probably more RoadWars or Police Camera Action though.

Get some pictures up!
