Having trawled through the forum I noticed there was a problem finding stainless steel downpipes for the 3.0l GTV. I had the option of paying £400, which I thought was extortionate. I tried Leco and they don't produce them anymore. Then the mechanic who works on my Cup found an advertisement last week from these guys in a magazine (think they've just started up):
I was wary as I didn't think they would fit as it advertises for the GTA etc but the mechanic found out from the main Alfa dealer, where he used to work before he went independent, that it was the same parts number for the GTV/GTA/147 etc. Even Scorpion weren't sure their product would fit! Turns out it does & what a glorious sound for £250. It's hooked up to my Ragazzon & it sounds even more incredible.
Anyway, it was just a hint/tip if you're looking to save money but still want a quality product. Hope it helps others.
