Thanks! Nope, it was very easy, as there are already pre-made holes underneath the car. Took about 30-40 mins in total to complete.

It looks like there are two with different product numbers? Which one did you grab? did it come with both sides for $380?

Sorry about the bombarding of questions!!

Guessing 18001 is the zenki version and 18004 is kouki version.

Fitment is likely the same, but the design is slightly different.

Fitment will be the same for sure. I just don't like how the newer version has the square-ish cut off near the front of the skirt. Seen it in person, and kills the lines.

Its all good! No worries. It comes with both sides, painted, and it'll be $380 + ~$200 for shipping and customs.

Love the car! Sorry to hear the Corsa install was so frustrating, I for one wish they used v-band clamps or some other system. But once you get the install and alignment right, that sound makes all your troubles go away.

Strange you had issues with it, I have the same Catback. I didn't use the spring bolts, I belive the instructions said to use their hardware. I just left every thing loose until I got all pieces installed then started aligning and tightening from the front back. My tips are perfectly centered but the drivers side sticks out about 1/2" further.

The Corsa sound is glorious.
