    Forget that lol, new flexipipe on ebay about £40, and get someone to cut out your old one and weld in a new one.. Not sure on the size of the flexi on the petrols... someone else with a petrol will be along shortly i'm sure..

    I had a de-cat and new Flexy by MIJ in Walsall, IIRC was about £100 all in .

    So yes, VX stealer is, as usual, talking complete twaddle.

    My front flexi went aswell a new front section is £470. Go to an exhaust shop and they will cut it out and weld a new one in. I got it done a week or 2 back for £65.

    A dealer wont do a job like that for you they will only fit a new section.

    You can get a full system incl a flexi at MIJ for a touch over £400, had mine done around 2 weeks ago and love it!!!
