    Default 3.2 exhaust leak

    Thought the exhaust sounded a bit loud, looked under the car to see fumes coming from a section under the engine. Looks like it's coming from a flexy looking connection between the two downpipes. The section looks like it comes apart from each downpipe and before the cat. But when I look on exhuast websites it looks like I'll have to buy a new cat, and they don't give prices!

    Anyone had to replace this section? What am I looking at price wise?

    This is the bit I think I'll need
