You talking about the single square? Or TV screens as they are called? (I think).

They were available in the Australia market I'm pretty sure, instead of the single rounds.

Don't scrap 4 door underpants, I love it

At least keep it as a backup or throw another engine in it.

Either way, I can't wait to see what you are going to do with the next underpants.

i apologize if this question has already been asked, but why do you run the exhaust out of the middle of the rear door? i'm not hating...just don't understand.

I can't speak for Bamse, but that rear floor can be a huge PITA to get a big exhaust around if you're super low. Cutting into the floor there lets you tuck it up way higher.

Also it looks cool.

Yes, i had some problems with the height of the exhaust, and the easiest way for hiding the silencer was actually to pull it up in the rear passenger foot space and, well.. eh.. out of the door. Had no usage for the backdoor anyways.
This year is the exhaust system gonna be a bit smarter(?) pulled, yet something in the brand of Bamse.

And it certainly looked sexy! 8)
