    Default £1100 for a 3" exhaust system??? A joke?

    Just popped into Janspeed today for a quote on my exhaust system. Told them it was a 2.75" setup as standard on the 2.8 V6 but they didn't seem to believe me until they saw it.

    Turns out they only have 3" not 2.75" so I said that was fine, but they are talking £1050 - 1100 from the down pipe back including the two parts of flexi...

    Is that a reasonable price or am I being had? Its all stainless and a full build from scratch and that is at club rates which he will offer to us on here also (he said 2.5" is much cheaper which I believe most of the non turbo petrol and diesel engines run with)...


    Anyone else had a similiar setup made up and how much did it cost? They are reknown for their exhausts though and have had some cracking reviews on the Corsa and Astra setups... the Siggy however is a one off

    I know MIJ do cheap setups but I believe 2.5" which is the more common and cheaper size... the Miltek system is a 2.75" setup and costs £800 before fitting but not for the Signum... as he said nothings been made for the Signum so might be the main reason he can add a few quid as there will be no measurements etc from previous setups etc.

    You should be asking for a discount so they can use your car as a development platform. £1100 does seem a bit steep to me.

    Perhaps I have shaved off a few hundred pounds as its the first one, plus I am goingcat-back as opposed to downpipe back which saves on like 25cm of pipe and the expensive flexi joints

    However that is the price quoted for a 'club buy' for the downpipe back when I asked lol, I would probably say they would knock £100 off for a cat-back (not including my negotiated discount) but don't quote me as they would need to verify

    Sorry mate. Don't matter what bore it is, they are ripping you off. £1100 for an exhaust is a joke.

    still would not pay that for an exhaust matey. Miltek gives no real gains on the vxr just noise. Obviously that would be different with the Siggy as the original one is so restrictive but I doubt much if any over a £375 MIJ system. But each to their own :-)
