Superb, Bob......much thanks......yeah, automotive on line only seem to do the full bhoona system, which I know is not required, as it has the Toyota TTE Twin Tailpipe exhaust on. That is something which will deffo complicate matters and negate the input of anybody in blue boilersuits. Will find out on Monday exactly where it has split and report back, but hopefully will get away with just the £62.00 centre section to buy and have fitted at same exhaust specialist who fitted the TTE Rear box, having to make a wee jointing piece to gerrit to bliddy fit. Me smells money, but this is its first "breakdoon" since we got it six years zago.

UPDATE ON EXHAUST......took the now Maserati impersonating Three Door Funnerburd Too to Kwik Fit this Sunday morning. One of the welds on the manufactured joint piece the specialist exhaust guys did to facilitate adding TTE rear box and twin pipes has completely failed in a straight joint. This will require re-welding and will book it in next week.

Its actual exhaust is virtually ONE PIECE going from downpipe to rear box, no main Centre Box, with only a minor blip of a wee silencer box near rear end, AND OF COURSE, the Catalytic Convertybob. So I had a good butchers there at.....boy oh boy.....is that exhaust pipe corrodified. Catalyser itself looked fine. Very helpful operative informed me a new wan resplendent with catalyser......aboot a grand, mate, unquote.......FFS mins.....
Fur a whole tenner said operative kindly used some exhaust clamps to stop the joint opening just so far and I commend his work and attitude. Gawbless Kwik Fit.....!!!!
Car now at Mr. T complete with WELL STUCK OAN caliper........wallet raped ramorra mins..... :shok:
