    Yeah dealer only part is the front section mate. Although i was quoted nearer £400 for it. Take it to an exhaust shop this is what everyone does when the flexi goes, it cost me £60 for a new flexi section supplied and fitted. Old one cut out new one welded in.

    just seems to be 1 thing after another, wifes just had about enough, and unfortunatly my pockets aint lined with gold i had a grand budget for all my mods. but seems repairs and servicing are gonna have to take center stage.

    I've used RJM & sons in Glenrothes, they seemed very efficient and made a tidy job when adapting my Irmscher box.

    They even painted the stainless section that they put on so it would match the irmy box

    I went to the one in Glenrothes and they were about £400 more than turf Tyres for the same system and they told me they could only make it a tiny bit louder than standard! They quoted£600 for exhaust, £350 for down pipes and to replace the flex for Mot as a temp job £180 turf Tyres £620 including temp repair of flexi
