    My accord 2.4 tourer is about to give in to rust (well it is 11 years old a) but do i go gen Honda or stainless. don't know how much a Honda system is but i have had a price of £350 for a stainless cat back and as the car runs on gas this may be the best option due to the amount of steam it chucks out the back. can anyone recommend any one or any were.

    I paid about that for an OEM catback including all OEM fittings from Holdcroft Honda. Designed to last 8 years, old one lasted 9 and a half. No issues with parts not fitting. Installed new o2 sensor at the same time which cost £80 plus a second hand OEM flexi downpipe which cost £70. No regrets.

    virtu honda have priced a new gen system at £506 all in and cybox want £495 for cat back stainless fitted and vat. I may go for the stainless because i run on gas and my silencers have rotted from the inside. Gone for cybox as they have a lot of good feedback unlike the cheaper one,s

    Running on Gas shouldn't mean you're silencer rot quicker on the inside, that's probably just down to age and perhaps she spent some of her life doing lots of short journeys.

    Will the stainless system be as quiet as the OEM one ?

    How do you mean all in - do you get a flexi pipe plus catback for that?

    OEM one is presently £321.36 (18030SEDE01) + £196.63 (18035SEDE00) which, with 10% discount, would be £466.19 from Holdcroft, and being OEM it will fit perfectly and will be quiet.

    btw, the main section (18030SEDE01) will just fit inside the Tourer with the seats down ....and the glove box open . Yep with the front of the pipe in the glove box.

    took the exhaust off to see how bad it was and it was the 2 in to 1 joint that was leaking so i re welded it and then made a re enforcement plate for top and bottom and welded it on rest of the exhaust is sound. the reason i did not take it for the stainless was they could not fit me in for over 2 weeks and the MOT was due before then so i had to do something with it.

    The honda system were it meets on this joint i can tell you is a weak point indeed in fact mine broke in half when i took it off and there is only one seam weld round it and a brace that rots away. Rest of the system is good, As for the welding its an exhaust under a car there are two plates bent in three diffrent ways and gas welded. Lets factor in i paid £1100 for this car a year ago a new exhaust would be not far off half it price. still it passed its MOT and has just done a 500 mile holiday trip this week so all is well,

    That's actually a pretty decent welding considering the location and the fact that the pipes would have been rusted. The welds have penetrated the metal and aren't cold welds that are blobbed on top.

    :GoodJob: I say

    last post on this one. My cars have to work and earn there keep. my whole family use this car and after a year of ownership of consider it has done that very well. Being a honda some parts can be expensive like the exhaust but thats what you buy in to. I love the car its not perfect and a bit battle scared but its a great drivers car (ok its auto) but i would like an 8th Generation in red and auto so while i don't like to patch things up i did not want to spend £500 on an exhaust only to get £600 part exchange if i sell it but at the moment it stays and will be enjoyed by all the family. Thanks to speedygee and others for your feedback. Just one final thing for the lpg users. I have been touring norfolk this week and before leaving home made a list of all gas stations listed on the autogas website in that area but there are so many more when you keep you eye open including one selling for 49p a litre witch i found on the a17 not long after i had filled up for 59p.
