    Hi guys,

    Getting a slight blowing from the back of my exhaust. I have been quoted £250 (all in, ie: - fitting, VAT etc). I can't help but think for a further £100 or just under I could get a custom stainless steel exhaust fitted?

    What do you guys think?

    I quite fancy a long lasting exhaust with a nice twin pipe from the back.

    I could probably only afford from the cat/back in stainless steel. Is it worth doing if you are not going to get the whole lot done ie manifolds down?

    Look forward to some opinions on the matter....

    I got a quote from Turriff Tyres just off Aberdeen for £340 (cat/back). Custom Crafts is the place I was talking about... might give them a bell and see what they are quoting!

    Cheers for the advice pal
