    Default Exhaust need replacing and WOW

    Hi guys,

    wonder if you can help me

    I got a 04 reg vectra C 2.2 Direct (ZE22YH) and one of the brackets that was welded onto the exhaust as rusted off - so i went to an exhuast place called HiQ that told me theres no holes and it still holding on just this hanger hanging off and went to quote me on a new centre and back boxes. . . £1100 i nearly died when he told me that - he said that currently only vauxhall parts avaiable hence the price and that i may get it bit cheaper from the stealers directly.

    i only paid 3000 for the car so thats just a stupid amount of money for what im gettin, is there anywhere I can get this exhaust for cheaper as its not gonna hold on there forever with a bracket down.

    cheers guys

    get a full custom one made up to your specification for about 350 quid whatever tips you want on it, the sound you want and the exhaust has lifetime guarentee and is cat back

    think the company is MIJ EXHAUSTS if i remember rightly but someone will correct me if im wrong

    My hangers came away too but i just had them welded back on for £40 iirc, i had a new rear box since but the rest is holding up just fine, find someone who can weld, its only spot welded up..

    see said someone would know better haha

    but i must agree 1100 is pure madness but some people pay it without realising so hard luck on them for not looking around

    Cheers for yoru help guys, didn't expect this much response so quickliy

    I posted my issue on another fourm who pretty much are saying the same so as their and your advice i called my local kwikfit for info, when i told erm how much Hi Q quoted, they started ****ing themselves and said 'even if we could get a complete gold plated genuine vauxhall exhaust it wouldn't cost that much', they could only quote be the two back boxes over the phone which was 160 quid for both and then said 'I cant see the centre section costing more than 900 pounds '
    so its booked in with them for next sat (and cos i went and booked it in online, i get another 10 pound online discount) so thank god for that.

    i would of gone custom if i couldn't get it any cheaper but because its one of those rear bumbers that hides the exhaust, i was worried cutting would of been invloved, and i hate cutting

    Cheers again guys for ur responses, ive bookmarked that site as it maybe useful in the future

    A custom exhaust place will still do the hidden exhausts if you wish...
