    Default HELP! Exhaust flexi failed

    And I need to get it replaced. My friendly local mechanic (known him for years) is quoting £275 plus VAT just for the part! I guess that is for a complete downpipe with the catalytic converter.Can I get just the flexi? If so, where from?Paul :-)

    ^^ That eBay item won't fit my 3.2 V6, apparently - according to the listing. :-( Blue estate, you have a PM. Thanks, chaps. :-D Paul

    I think my friendly, trusted, independent mechanic is going to let in a new coupling for me. He is going to get measurements when he can get my car back on the hoist. I won't get it back today but it should be back on song tomorrow. The coupling's been failing over a few weeks. It was noisy on initial start up and worst when the engine was cold but it got progressively more 'throaty' on my trip into work this morning. Paul

    I am wondering now whether a new down pipe assembly - pipes, flexi, catalytic converter, etc. - might be a better bet in the long run than a repaired flexi, especially as I would save on labour charges. What do you guys think? Paul
