    Exhaust IS NOT covered via warrenty! Its classed as wear and tear! Same as brakes!

    headlights you have to keep them on for 15 mins if its clears they wont change them. i had that on my 2.2. and thats what my local vx dealer said as above for the exhaust.

    Are you sure your exhaust is rotting? Mine is an my exhaust seems to be doubled skinned. IE under the rotten skin is another skin. So my exhaust is still on and still rotting away lol.

    I thought the headlight problem could be fixed under warranty. It has been covered before do a search just to confirm whether I'm talking out of my backside or not.

    yeah it should be perfectly ok.

    If however u need a replacement OE exhaust then click the link in my sig - massive savings over main dealers....but as said above, majority are double skinned and its the outer skin that usually just rusts and peels away.

    As long as the exhaust is healthy and doesnt blow then everything should be perfectly ok
