156 Exhaust Replacement

Hi All,

The back box and the link pipe it joins on to on my 2000 156 1.8TS have seen better days so at some point in the not too distant future I want to get them replaced.

Kwik Fit have quoted 229 fitted (or something like that!) but are there cheaper options out there? Also I've heard some horror stories with Kwik Fit so should I avoid them?

Also as a reasonably competent home mechanic albeit more used to motorbikes is this something I could realistically do myself with the car up on axle stands/ramps?

I've seen exhaust parts listed on eBay which are pretty cheap (I'm not sure of the quality though) so if I was to buy them and fit myself I could do the job for a fraction of the cost?

Regards Fraser

Avoid Kwik-Fit at all costs. I guarantee one of their partially trained muppets will **** up the job.

They did my tracking 3 months ago and has eventually led to having the steering rack replaced cos they wrecked one of the track-rod boots.

Try buypartsby or ecb spares. Its possible to do it DIY with little or no trouble, which will save on labour costs
