    Can't give an exact price but when I had my de-cat done @ MIJ Walsall on the 3.2, had to replace the fexible connection and the whole job came to £120.00. As I was quoted £50 for the de-cat, you're looking at £70ish.

    The outer steel braiding covers a convuluted flexible pipe (but pretty rigid) so although the outer braid may be coming away (as mine was), the inner pipe should be OK for a while. Just that I had mine done as it was another thing to cross off the list.

    Look on ebay. The front flexi went on my v6 and I just bought a bolt on replacement from ebay. Just had to cut off the knackered flexi and put the new one on. The new one was a clamp on flexi and all you have to do is slide it on and clamp both ends with exhaust clamps. Far easier, cheaper and quicker than welding a new flexi on.

    Think it cost me around £15.
