Do bad things really happen in 3s...? (New Exhaust Back Box needed)
As I'm sure some of you have read in my other recent thread my Climate Control has gone from working intermitently to not working at all.
Just as I thought I was on the way to having a sorted Bella again, I get in the motor to nip to Halfords and what's that? The exhaust being extremely loud. By the time I had it on the ramp at the local Kwik Fit (all that was open at quarter to six) it sounded like my car was a tractor! The pipe into the back box had corroded right through.
End result after him phoning a supplier (from his book it was a dealer only part) was a quote for £366.06 all fitted. For a back box! My fiancee nearly fell over! So I said gimme a few days to hunt around....
So anyone want to suggest where I can get one cheaper (will try the dealer near me have absolutely no faith that'll be any less)? I remember reading a few posts in threads about people replacing whole exhausts etc, so I really hope somebody can help!!
If bad things come in threes I dread what's round the corner. Nothing is stopping me hitting Le Mans in June!!!!
