Hi, I have the GT 2.0 JTS, I have recently had a new clutch fitted to the selespeed and since this job was done my front exhaust started making noises from a looses flexi and now it is blowing too. I see that some say the 156 front exhaust will fit, I can locate these on ebay at around £40 but cant find a cheap flexi for gt. It's more like £100 on 1 dealer but they say it fits all 2.0 JTS models. Can someone confirm that this will fit my GT. Heres a link to exact 1 im looking at.

I need to make this repair as cheap as poss as clutch cost me £625!!!!!!

I tried and failed, it wasn't blowing at all just a horrid noise that sounded like I had 1000 screws in my glove box, then a week later it started to blow and car seems less powerful too grrrrrr, anyways all booked in for monday to be fitted and have a full service!!

I can rotate mine but the flexi part seems intact. I might just jubilee clip it until the end of the month. I asked my daughter's boyfriend and he's going to lend me his mig welder. I'll post pics of the burned out she'll when I've finished!...:D

Mine seems down on low down torque too.

holy thread resurrection batman!...

have just also bought the front flexi pipe as per the link..OEM was £190!...

the reason why every lafa owner should be on the forum, it's great little bits of info like this that really help and make ownership a pleasure rather than an expensive headache.

thanks chaps.
