Sounds like a V8....

Hi All,

Decided to take F91 to my motor club meeting last night, 120 mile round trip down the M40 and A34. All was going well untill I got to the A34 when the back box parted company with the exhaust .
Although I like the V8 sound it now creates, I'm sure my neighbours didn't when I got home late last night .

Any one got any recomendations as to the best place to get a replacement, either fitted or just parts. Also can anyone get me the part number from ePER, I can't get it to work (F91 is a 1000 Carb model with no CAT)

Thanks in advance
Tom.

What ever you do don't bother with Quick fit. Had nothing but trouble with them when we had Manda's exhaust done. 3 visits in 3 days and they still didn't do it right. Plus the day before we was selling her it went again so I took her back and kicked off in front of a packed waiting room and they finally got it right.

It's amazing that when you finally have a go they do the job as they was ment to in the first place.

IMO, stuff the neighbours, they're overrated anyway

We've had exactly the same with the 750L and Kwick Fit

Re: Sounds like a V8....

Thanks all.

Having looked at it again in the light, I think I may be able to weld it back together which may keep it together for a bit longer. Nothing to loose..

Also after a bit of searching I have found Online Automotive do the rear section for about £34 delivered incase anyone else is interested.

Tom.
