so today on my lunch break i dropped my car down to the exhaust shop to get that canon off

from this
Image

to this
Image

looks much better i think i wanted the muffler back more so my exhaust pipe could have a bend in it and make it look better but it will be going back soon to get the whole exhaust system lifted who ever installed the system dident tuck it up its hanging around one and a bit inchs low so once thats all sorted ill get the muffler moved back and have a nice bend on the exhaust pipe :)
