    Default Exhaust advice.

    Just wondering if anyone can shed some light on this, I had my exhaust done at MIJ yesterday so i got the car over the pit at work to check out the craftsmanship. Now the new sections are a dream but i have noticed the flexi piece in the old pipe (looks like woven metal threads and just looks like its sheiding the inner pipe) is loose and broken off at one end, could this cause a problem if so i am surprised that nothing was said yesterday.

    Mine was similar and when I took it to MIJ they commented on it so I got them to replace it at the same time, they cut the old one off and welded a new one on before they fitted the new exhaust.

    This was mine after they'd cut it off, does yours look as bad as this one? If so I'd think about getting it changed. Also is it leaking ?

    Nah it don't look that bad Ian. Don't know if it's blowing but when you put your foot down once it gets to around the 3000 rpm mark it sounds like a farting noise (well i think it does). Have been told that the braided part is just a covering that covers the flexi pipe.
