I've just bought this Remus exhaust off of eBay:



For 121. It was 143 new, so Im not sure if it was worth it or not as it ended up being 131 with P&P!

Yesterday there was a Magnex Oval on there which went for 66.

I still need to get a Remus Centre section as my silencer has a hole in it.

Question is, if I pick up the section or get it delivered, how do I get it to the fitting garage? Will the centre section fit into my Corsa or will I need a bigger car to transport it?

Thanks,

Thanks guys. Is it a case of having it poking through between the front seats and the rear seats down?

Also, are Halford Exhaust bushes any good or should I shell out for Powerflex?

Thanks

Has anyone used Halfords exhaust bushes? Are they any good or should I spend the extra and get Powerflex?

Or will Vauxhall ones be okay?

yeah i think they would have them in stock, but why not get some from an exhaust specialist, they will probably be cheapest from there.

I don't know much about tyre/exhaust places, but I didn't want to go in with the exhaust and then find out I needed to get bushes too - but if they will have some then I'll let them use thier own stock.

I've been quoted 8 per 15 mins to get it fitted. Is this good? How long should it take?

That was my only concern really - it did sound a little pricey - but to be honest the same as other garages I've come into contact with getting electrical quotes etc.

I just need to know how long it should take so that I can make sure they don't bend me over once Im on their ramps.
