    Vehicle : Saab 95

    Trim : Vector Sport

    Engine : 1.9 TiD

    Year : 2007

    Default GSI Front pipe / Cat

    My dad gave us a bell this morning to see if i would do him a favour and take his car to the local tyre & exhaust place to get some parts fitted, as he was busy, no probs i said, so went and got his car & the dosh to pay the bill !



    He gives me the keys and a HUGE wad of notes !

    I'm like 'er what you getting done ?'

    New front pipe & cat supplied and fitted......... £573.40 !!

    Has any other GSI owners had these parts replaced ? I'm just trying to find out if he's been ripped off or not, seems pretty steep to me ! (His car is a 52 plate, now done about 53k miles)

    Cheers

    Seems a bit steep, I’m sure I have seen aftermarket replacement cats much cheaper (I think it may have been a sports replacement version).

    no, just sounds like a rip-off.. they don't pattern the 3.2 downpipe and cat yet, so it must be a VX part.. i can't remember all the details tonight (red wine) but it's no way that dear..

    the front pipe is £180 (part only) from VX

    thats a recent quote from when i was putting a gsi system, from silencer back onto an sri - so i enquired about that front pipe as an option.
