  1. Goosed flexi..

    Did it seal no problem? I've no access to lifts so probably have to get it done in a garage. Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk
  2. Goosed flexi..

    So as stated above, my flexi has had it, I've been quoted £320 including labour to fit new cat and flexi as it's 1 solid piece. Or £122 to cut old flexi out and weld new flexi in. Swaying towards the new flexi instead of a cat as well for obvious reasons..also my exhaust apart from flexi of course is in decent condition. Or do I get shot of cat and dpf and get a straight through stainless steel? I know it's not ideal for MOT purposes but I'd try keep the dpf housing or just pass through the housing with stainless. Anyway, what's people's thoughts? Cheers. Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk
  3. Exhaust fumes in the car

    So, my flexi is past it, it's part of my cat so can't just undo a clamp and replace it I'm having to cut it out and weld new flexi in as I was quoted 320 for a new cat and flexi including labour. So I'm aware of the implications of removing cat and dpf but I'm considering a straight through stainless exhaust. Anyone any thoughts on that? Worth it? And if so I'm based in Crewe at the minute and looking for a shop to make me a custom pipe that's not too far from where I am at the minute. Cheers in advance. Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk

    Hi, what's the bypass kit you bought for your egr valve as I got 1 and tried to fit it but was unable thinking I got the wrong kit. Cheers. Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk

    £450 for my service today, paid with a heavy heart but I've got some miles to do over the next month and I'm sitting at 129k on the clock so the peace of mind is settling. Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk

    Well in my case it's both integril links on the rear axles. I've got a quote for OEM spec parts £27.50 each from a friend with a company discount. Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk

    I was quoted £275 + vat for service not including the electronic trans plug. Extra £100 + vat for plug if it's leaking. Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk

    Hi sorry, no I've been overseas for the past 3 weeks so neglected the beast I'm afraid, I'll email them and get a quote. Have you been and got yours done? Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk
  13. Clunking on take off?

    So, I had it up on lifts and found that the pin bar on the bottom of the struts which connect to the lower axle arms have 2 bushes either end of the pins and all 4 were worn. Not sure what they're text book name is to order the bushes but when I do I'll let you know. Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk
