Cry Like A Baby 166 TS exhaust blow??????????

My 166 TS has developed what sounds like a blow from somewhere around the front area and the fuel consumption has dropped to around 24 mpg. I have taken the heat shield and under tray off but cannot find any obvious leak. I have taken it to Kwik-fitless but they say that it is somewhere around the front area which they don't deal with. Any suggestions or if there is any known common problem with these? The local Alfa specialist says that they tend to go at the flexible coupling before the CAT but it sounds further forward than that..........?
