    How much for fitting of exhaust?

    Been going round getting a few quotes today, is £50 to much for a cat-back system to be fitted? Does anyone know of somewhere in the Reading area that will be able to do it while i wait for any cheaper than that?
    Cheers
    Matt

    I don't really have the time to fiddle about doing it myself, ive found somewhere to do it for £30 and im pretty sure someone i know works there so should be less than that

    I had to do the last on myself - Quick ift told me it'd be in excess of £300 labour alone as all the bolts were rusted solid. This didn't include the cost of the pipe - which was they had to get from VX as no pattern part was available (worked out at £250)

    I ended up having grind the pipe off and drill and retap all the flangs. Only took me 2 hours though
    And the new genuine VX pipe was only £130 from autovaux

    Next pipe will be done myself as well - as COO said I'm getting too old for playing around under cars, but I ain't paying for something I can do myself

    In your case Geoff.... I would have suffered the stiff neck and cold floor !
    to save money !

    Maybe when I get planning consent, and my garage actually built, and have good heating, I might do it all myself
