    So ugh, my exhaust just fell off...

    driving down the road, normal exhaust blowing noise, all good, then...BOOM, sounds like someones put a bloody spitfire in the car with me, car loses all power, had to trawl it home.

    Had a look underneath, and the exhaust has come away from the engine end of the car.


    Don't really know what to do now :\ No car until insurance pays out (if they do)

    Looks like its lots of walking for me haha .

    Gutted! Mine did that at the redline once, was dragging behind the car. Had to pull it of and hide it in a hedge and get it later as it was to hot to put in the car.
