Just been quoted £159 including VAT and fitting for a Longlife stainless steel exhaust rear section that I'm told will take care of the mid-rear section flange. (Local exhaust centre quoted £136+VAT for mild steel rearward of the mid-section silencer)
I have only just had the front flexible hose section replaced for £115 including VAT and fitting from mild steel so I'm really kicking myself. In fact its probably all the bashing they had to do to get the front flexible hose section off the made the already weak mid-section to rear section flange give up.
- Should I watch out for Longlife exhaust for any particular reason?
- The connecting exhaust pipe from the rear of the mid-section silencer to rear section flange looks a little corroded. Will this mainly be replaced by a stainless tube as part of the fitting process?
- They mentioned the sound being standard or having a note. Will the note be very noticeable or seem pointless or a standard 2001 1.6 16v SXi?
I realise that exhaust systems are often to individual taste so welcome and appreciate any advice, either way.....
