My old 900i used to jump off it's rubbers now and again - more to do with them being very tired I think. > maybe I should be thinking about getting a stainless single box system, > and miss out that middle box :0 If it ain't there, it can't catch, and > it will sound so much sweeter. It will. I've a single stainless pipe from the turbo to the back box, which is mounted just in-front of the rear wheels. The twin pipes them come off the back box and over the rear NS wheel mountings. I had a good look at my parents' this weekend, simulating some speed bumps on their drive. It is the long pipe that scrapes once the front wheels are over the bump. I need to cut the pipe from the back box front and re-seat it more horizontally - it points slightly towards the ground at the moment, so the downpipe is forced towards the ground a little. Paul
