    Bonjour!

    I need a new exhaust as mine is now sounding like a broken stock car. Can anyone recommend a good place to get one?

    Also, would you get a standard replacement or something a little sportier? Is there any point on a 90bhp diesel?


    Cheers,
    Mike.

    Any old back street garage will replace it.

    Juts avoid National Tyres / Kwik Fit / Halford etc. They'll sell you the whole system.

    Someone mentioned that a de-cat would pass MOT... Is that right? I don't think it is, but he was quite insistent.

    I'm under the assumption diesels only have to pass the smoke test, also, it's to my belief that pre 2006 cars aren't tested anyway. Mine is straight through and has the EGR bypassed and had zero problems (has a tendency to smoke like Dot Cotton at times aswell!)
