    fitting it easy mate 1 clamp on the center and 2 bolts on the back box, just make sure you get some joining paste and a gasket for the flange.

    taking the old system off is the hard bit, most likely need rubber hammer to hit it off lol

    Depends how easy it is to get the old centre section off - took ages with mine, as it was well and truely solid, ended up cutting through the old pipe flange with a hammer and chisel, a grinder would have been easier.

    Dont pay a garage to fit it mate, you will regret it. Its not hard, i fitted mine within half hour. Easy for me to get a clamp and gasket as i got it from where i work. Could probly get you one. If you cant separate it from the middle just keep mullering it, and it will come off eventually. Unless you got access to heat then its much easier.

    My local TMS sold me the gasket for about £1, and the exhaust hangers for not much different. Vauxhall sell these parts too, but they are about five times the price!

    Have you tried sourceing parts from any online places? There are loads now.

    I fitted mine myself... the key is to soak all the nuts, bolts and sleeves/flanges with penetrating oil the night before, it should be is much easier to separate and remove.

    Also if you do fit it.... don't cain it straight away, needs a good say 100 miles or couple of days to bed it, otherwise it might start blowing.
