    Default typical steelers

    il keep this rant short!!!
    i left my vec in today to dealers to get rattle looked at! they said they where replacing starter motor and flywheel (dmf) under warranty! he then went on to say my exhaust was blowing out at the flexi part and would cost £637!!!!!!!!!!!!! a few minutes later when i stoped laughing! he said vauxhall would cover £200 of it as a good will gesture leaving me £437, i told him where to stick it and booked it into my usual mechanic to have new flexi welded in for £60!!
    Where do they dream up these prices??????????????

    Its a shame but the front section goes from just before the flexi and includes the cat and a silencer its basicly the whole centre section of the exhaust and it expensive but that sounds a bit to expensive.

    Any non-manufacturer garage or exhaust fabricator will cut out and weld in a new flexi for around £60. Some people dont know about this option and shell out for a centre section
