Anyone bought this exhaust off eBay?

My MOT approaches in April and I'm gradually sorting jobs on the Spider which is my daily driver in preparation. The current exhaust is held together with patches and is on the list to change. I was going to go for a Cybox stainless from the cat back, (front section already changed), but this item on eBay looks a bargain and means some other jobs on the car can be picked up too. Has anyone bought one and if so is it any good?

it looks like its a 3rd party oem exhaust, it will most likely sound exactly like stock, and it will rust exactly like stock.

Depends on what you want, if you want the same sound and plan on keeping your car for 4 years.. 6 years its fine.

a bump up is a Stainless steel one for x2 the price but will last forever.

a bump up from that is Ragazzon Alfa Romeo Spider und Alfa Romeo GTV Tuning - Sportauspuff - Alfa Romeo Shop - Tuning, Styling, Fanartikel und Modellautos

and a bump up from that is Wizard exhaust

I bought the Cybox for my GTV, (which is a V6), and it is good quality and makes a nice noise, not 'boy racer' just appropriate 'burble'.
When my Spider, (2.0 L TS), needs a back section I would have no hestitation in going for the Cybox for that too.

Thanks all for the comments.

I bought the exhaust from eBay and it arrived from Germany in 3 days, which is pretty good. Spent three and half hours today putting it on and all went OK. The box contained everything I needed including new rubbers, nuts, bolts and the gasket between the cat and 1st box.

The exhaust that came off is a pattern part and didn't use all of the anchor points where as the new one does.

Originally I loosely built the exhaust and tried to fit it in one go but this proved impossible so I put it on in sections and then connected it up. Silicone spray makes the rubbers easier to fit!
