    Default Exhaust help please?

    Afternoon all, I am trying to find an exhaust system for my 54 plate 1.9 CDTI Elite Signum. The flexi pipe on the cat is blowing and the rear box has one of its mounts broken. Not sure if it will pass another MOT. According to my local VX garage they are charging £1000 ish for a whole system. Anyone know where abouts I could get one without cutting off an arm and leg?? I live in Colchester. Have tried various places around but have had no joy at the moment. Thanks in advance, Wooly

    Christ, a full custom system from somewhere like MIJ Exhausts in Birmingham costs a third of that. Just keep trying the local exhaust places.

    Many high street tyre & exhaust fitters don't stock Signum exhausts, and can't even find them in their suppliers' catalogues; but any good exhaust place can weld on a new piece of flexi trim and new mounts. If you do ever find yourself needing to buy an exhaust from Vauxhall, get Trade Club access first (by becoming a full member on here, for example), and Vauxhall will sell it to you for between 40-50% off.

    Hi Mate, got a full System fitted to my 1.8 Vec from Grays Hanwell.
    Ph: 0208 5674526, to be fair they did a great Job and were much cheaper than Kwikfit.
    Anyways tried to get you a quote with details given, informed your Signum has 6 different models so would need reg ect ect.
    Hope this helps, all the best

    I have a used middle and back box sitting in my garage doing nothing. Like I say its used, the middle box is in good condition the outer skin on the back box is starting to go but it still has lots of life in it. I could post in the for sale section if your intrested. Send me a PM and I'll post for sale, rules are rules! Sorry I cant help you with the flexi pipe.

    Thanks for all your replies. I have had it checked over by another person and it is not as bad as first thought. The flexi joint can be replaced (as I found out in some other posts on here) and the back box is fixable. Just goes to show what the VX garages won't tell you. Have a good one all, Wooly

    If you have a DPF then the front flexi section can be bought from eaby for about £40 delivered so need for welding etc.
