Exhaust replacement?

What would you recommend for my exhaust?

It was a little bit corroded when I purchased the car but it looks to be getting worse.





Does this need replacing, what is that particular part called and does anybody know estimated cost?

Re: Exhaust replacement?

TBH Id leave it till it starts blowing unless you would feel better if it was new.its allways going to corrode.nature of the beast im afraid unless you pay for a stainless steel one.


FYI I had a custom made cat back exhaust made for my 2turbo Vectra,7 years ago. Still going strong and looking good and was cheaper than replacing the two rear boxes.


Prices are going to vary depending on where you go,make used and warrenty. I tend to phone round and compare.It is a diy job if you can be bothered.

As above but depends how long you will be keeping this car. You could well find that getting a stainless steel one made up and fitted is just a little more expensive and you should get a lifetime guarantee (for you) on it. Hence if you expect to keep the car more than say 2/3 years then get it done and forget about it. If you do not expect to keep it that long just get a mild steel one but defo phone and shop around.

Re: Exhaust replacement?

There's an advisory on the MOT that it is blowing however I cannot hear it, It's been like that since i got the car so about 18 months.

I don't want anything fancy, just a standard replacement.

Something like this for 33 then I know somebody that will fit it.

That's just the first ad I found on eBay so may be better ones.

Re: Exhaust replacement?

there appears to be soot on the seam in the first picture...negligible tho. BUT it is going to corrode further and get worse.

Re: Exhaust replacement?

What does soot show, does that show that it is blowing? Yeah it will only get worse so was planning to replace it in the not to distance future just looking for the part at the moment.
