    Default Outrageous price - MIJ exhausts! Cheap system wanted

    Just called up MIJ exhausts for a price on a cost cutting system.

    If i want

    Downpipe - decat - middle box - 2 rear boxs - twin exit = £365

    So thats including 3 boxes!

    If i want a decat to existing middle box = 1 straight piece of pipe

    and then existing middle box straight to the twin exit

    So just using the original middle box, doing away with the rear and having some pipework made £325

    So does that mean it only costs £40 for 3 exhaust boxs?

    This is outrageous

    I was expecting £80 - £120

    So you expected a fully hand made stainless exhaust for £100? What planet are you on?

    I dare you to call VX and ask how much one us from them!
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    The boxes are now premade I believe. It is the labour, time and effort of fitting you are paying for. The price needs to be enough to warrant the time, workshop space etc.

    The prices you have been quoted are a lot cheaper than what I was quoted!!

    Sorry but I have to agree with the majority, the materials alone are probably about £180>£240.00 plus the labour and faffing I would be interested in that too in fairness if it were closer to me as I want a twin set up on my car

    Ok ok.......Ive just been quoted £150 at powerflow?

    I dont think you are fully understanding what i mean.....yes i know the laybour cost and price of stainless is what bring the costs up......

    One piece of straight pipe to replace cat and piping frome middle box to rear of car...NO boxs £325


    But if i want a Full system from downpipe back including 3 boxs its only £40 more?

    How much do you think the pipe work costs.....


    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/3-5-88-9-mm-T3...item4aa458bc88

    MIJ themselves @ £16 per metre.....how many metres will i need?? 2, 3 tops?
    And they will be making them selves a profit on ebay so whats it costing them?

    Sorry but ive payed £30 for the last two decats ive had and the last cat back system cost me £100

    With No boxs its probley costing MIJ £60 in materials!

    Does that mean its £260 laybour? How long does it take?
