    went to crap fit today
    to get some new tyres
    whilst on the ramp they called me over
    and showed me my exhaust system. oh err
    most of it is corroded and the cat has come loose
    and looks sh@@@ed...
    they very nicely told me it would be better to
    replace the whole system and kindly quoted me
    £2445 to replace...................:Aghast:
    please tell me i can get it cheaper as this was what the car cost me
    2 weeks ago.......
    regards

    Mine had rotted out at the Y-section and the flange at the back of the cat - on the b-pipe

    All replaced with stainless, for circa £500-600 - much cheaper than even considering an OEM pipe and you don't have to worry about it sounding like some car park w**ker either.
