Hi, the backbox on my gf's cooper is starting to rot, and rattle quite a bit.

BMW/Mini want something like £350 fitted for the backbox fitted - is there anywhere cheaper I can source the part from?

I've tried eBay, but nothing on there at the moment.


Thanks

Back Box

Hey

I replaced my back box in my o2 plate in May. I got it done at Mcconechys in Paisley for £154 including vat and fitting.Kwik fit wanted £199 I called Mini too and had a little chuckle at the price and so did the parts chap on the phone at douglas park and told me where they get their parts from Bosch and to call them.

hope this helps

Out of interest did you try Budget in Bridge Street? The last couple of times I've had to buy an exhaust (not for the Mini) they were the cheapest by quite a bit

Thanks chaps - I had seen that one on Eurocarparts. I take it it'll be the same as the standard one then?

try longlife exhausts. they will make you one up there and then. £149 inc VAT for a back box. it takes them 3 hours to custom make it but its worth the wait :D. you can pick which sort of tail pipe you want too.
