Back box fitting

Hello all
I can imagine this has been covered a quadtrillion times, but I need a little peace of mind.

Right.. So i have a punto Evo 1.4 8v, and I am simply wanting to replace the back box with a uprated performance backbox.
Now my issue is about the clearance between the bumper and exhaust.
Will i have to cut the bumper to make room for the exhaust outlets? My fear is that i have to cut out a huge chunk out of the bumper which will end up looking silly.



The sportex Exhaust seems to have a curved outlet which avoids the bumper.
my worry is that outlet will drop down to far and look a bit strange. If anyone has fitted this model or seen one, Could you post a pic so i can see what it looks like fitted?



The other exhaust being a Ulter with a dual outlet, Now i prefer this one over the sportex, but it seems i might have to cut away the bumper?



Any help or pictures of these two fitted would easy my mind on making a decision.
cheers again
Ben
