    Default Low-down-no-good-rotten-exhaust. Will this fit my car?

    OK, my exhaust is generally rotten and is now blowing in front of the rear CAT I believe (the flexible bit of pipe??). Hmph. The garage have quoted over £850 inc for a "mix and match" exhaust () or around £1600/£1700 inc for a VX replacement.

    I think > > > covers my reaction to this news. But I hid my tears and that is the most important thing.

    Sooooooooooooooooo I'm thinking I'm not going to go that route:

    Looking at either a midlands, scorpion or MIJ stainless cat back system and then sourcing a CAT from elsewhere - hence this post. Will this fit my car (an 02 plate 3.2 GSi petrol manual) - I'm thinking it won't so this is largely speculative but you never know!

    If I'm right (ie it won't), where's good for this type of thing? Been looking around online and have it down to £169.90 ex vat... Do I even need a new CAT or could I just replace the flexible bit of pipe (something like this)?

    If I'm wrong and this will (or might) fit my car, what else would I need? It seems a lot shorter than the other 'CATs' for sale, they have much longer pipes coming out the front of them...

    Thanks in advance

    I suggest a trip to a custom exhaust shop in the Bristol area and have a beautiful new stainless steel system made for you right in front of your eyes at about £400 ish fitted!

    £1600 who are they kidding!!!

    Yes a custom exhaust will be about 400, and a cat maybe £275 for a sports one?

    You can de cat a 3.2 no problem, and it will pass emissions fine as well as the two pre cats do all the work. Just get a MIJ from the down pipe, no cat needed. (Disclaimer lol........ as long as your engine is running fine and the pre cats are fine)
