    might be the paper lables on i, but mine made that smell the day i fitted it, if it smells a bit eggy might be the catalytic converter

    If it smells like matches which is a sulpher smell that is the same smell as the the cat will give probbally best getting your emissions checked to see if it is the cat.
    If you use the car regularly it wont be the new exhaust labels as they will have gone .

    Paint burning off will smell like pint being burnt

    Bad egg (hydrogen sulphide) gas is produced in the cat when it's not working efficiently, as said already.

    its a 03 plate sxi, exhaust has been on about two months but the smell has only just started in the last few weeks. had a free emissions test done at tesco car park only about 6/7 weeks ago and it passed with flying colours. oh and by the way how much should i pay for my second service its to be done at the end of the month, including new break pads and shoes for the rear.

    thanks people
