    Some how The car has developed a Crack in the Middle pipe for the Exhaust. Its rattling like crazy and making a very loud popping sound when stand ide. ( get more looks them a lambo trust me lol!) I've been told that the rear end come as one peice? is that correct? i was thinking more on the lines of replacing the middle section? I've been quoted 230 by garage786 in Leicester? worth it?

    Your rear section looks like this and is one piece.



    Is that price for a middle or rear section?

    You could get a full Powerflow stainless steel exhaust custom made for around £380.... its a bit more than just replacing the rear end but you get a lifetime warranty.... thats what I'd do anyway

    What the Dealer is saying is you have to buy the rear backbox with the middle section as it comes as one piece?

    Do you know if you have a secondary cat in the middle section? It's going to be bl**dy expensive if it does

    I think you may want to look at aftermarket options then. Stainless sounds good
