There was another post on here that had the same mod for only £40, although with different ends.
Wouldn't expect any difference as it is only the ends of the pipe that have been changed and I doubt that the dealer would cover the exhaust any more if it corrodes/falls off.
One question, when they weld the new ones in place - how do they stop the underside of the car getting hit by sparks etc.? Would this cause any damage to the plastics or the car itself - last time I welded anything it was a bit like firework night.
Off topic - but has anyone any thoughts on a K&N filter in a diesel engine? Had one in a Turbo Beetle once and it seemed to make it go a whole lot better.
I would like to know where nubby got his tail pipes fitted for £40 as I called 3 Powerflow specialists who all gave me round about the same quotes and the price I paid was the cheapest one. As I said in my first post the price included them fabricating a pipe to attatch to the newtail pipe that reduced the end to a size that could be welded to the back box.
I thought that they were very precise when fitting so that everything was in line and spaced equally.
The welding was done well and they covered the car with a softsheet and then put a welding blanket over the areas that they would be working on. The underside of the car did not need as much protection as there is a large heat sheild and mostly metal in that area.
All in all they done a great job with no damage done to the KUGA.
I'm planning a stainless exhaust with carbon fibre tail pipes and a remap. I've made some enquiries and hope to get this work done in the next couple of weeks. I fitted a K&N performance air kit yesterday, all together should increase my 2011 mk1 from 163 to about 182 and improve fuel consumption.
