I've had a custom chrome system made for the Spider & the welds look cack.

The welds on the GT wizard are a work of art

My welds look beautiful.. but I had Dozy Dennis fit mine.

First of all the lad forgot that I wanted a cat-back system, so he welded the system to the front silencer...

Luckily I had a good peep underneath before I drove off and got him to also fit me the stainless front silencer that I'd paid for.

Hext attempt he managed that.. but he slightly queered the fit of the tailpipes in the bumper cut-out. They were spot on the first time..

Then during the welding he didn't earth the beast properly and the shock of having it's 'nads electrocuted blew the coil bracket to smithereens and fried #1 coil... which it took them 4 or 5 hours to not be able to diagnose. They charged me for a new Lambda which they fitted while diagnising..

In the end they were closing and I had to go leave... though they still stopped work for their tea and chips. (They didn't offer us one, all the 6 hours I was there).

They re-cycled me to a local auto technician who worked out I had a coil problem (and who gave me a cuppa! ) but MIJ weren't having it that they caused the problem.

Luckily I found a whole set of new coils from flea-bay, and a new coil bracket from an AO-er.. so I managed to fix the beast for about 50...

I think if it all goes well, I'd say the exhaust quality is good... but their custome care (my experience at least) was well shonky.
