    Sometimes you get power increases, sometimes it stays the same and sometimes it's less. How would you actually know that it's increased the power? Not usually enough difference to 'feel'. Just enjoy the fact that at least one part of your car is going to last for a reasonable length of time.

    The thing is,the exhaust systems on these cars seem to last yonks,the back boxes are double skined and can last ten years or more,diesel exhausts last longer anyway because they tend not to suffer from condensation inside and dont run as hot as a petrol.

    Tha extra power you get from a stainless is neglible anyway.

    Original exhaust system still looks new on my V6. Doesn't seem to be much point to spending hundreds on a new system IMO.
