    Milltek exhaust - Is this right, can it be fixed?

    Hi all. Had full milltek system fitted other day. Tailpipe is slightly off centre. Garage (well known and respected custom exhaust place here) said it was a good fit with no problems etc. Although i am not all that bothered about it, just wondering if it can be fixed, has anyone else had this system fitted and had it sit off centre or indeed sit perfect?

    You could try bending the mounting arms a little each way, but you'd risk snapping the welds, you'd need to support the arm and bend that so as not to stress the weld

    bit risky though!!

    You reckon that is wrong then? He said it couldn't be avoided? That is how it sits when fitted? Need to find someone with same system to see if it can be fixed, think danny does

    ahh drivers, forgot that place existed, i've not got a milltek for the bus yet, but i've had them on previous cars, and by far the best thing about them is how well they fit. might be worth contacting them direct and asking them what they think.
