    Is Problem with double exit - double trouble.

    Mine has been wobbling about in several pieces underneath for few months. Pedestrians (friends) have commented how loud it is.
    As you can see my single rear is only a pipe to avoid catching off-road. See how the box sits there if it gets ripped off we will have something to weld to next time ;)

    Update : Tracker says parts have left Newcastle 19:55 gmt.

    Paddock gave me 60 ‘points’ to spend in store. Don’t know how to use them or what they are for?

    Turns out -

    1 loyalty point given for every £1 spent - 100 points = £2 off next order.
    Points must be spent within a year.

    Parts arrived just gone 11 FairPlay.

    The exhaust looks a monster! - is infact a Britpart. The underside of the box has the brand stamped on it and considerable dents that were underneath the card protectors. My guess is they knew it was coming to me so put them in to match the vehicle.
    I’m not bothered for £39 at short notice with guarantee it’s a bargain
    74B94BB6-3D27-46D9-AE9C-8F3337C5013F.jpeg Doubt the box will last long - seems cheap, but the pipe itself seems decent :)

    Drag link seems good quality TBF. Obviously not a Lemforder but not a Britpart either - website only states quality ‘aftermarket’ A43DEB67-CE09-4F00-9D91-A3DB849BAC52.jpeg
    One little touch I liked about Paddocks Spares - they put in a bag of 2x ANR1000 (nut- fqa) for no charge, don’t know what these are for but always nice have spares :)

    Yes! Mot passed.

    Have done 6267miles in a year. This is because half the time it has been stripped down in garden for some reasons :D

    It only did 318 in the three years before as I only used it when my 90 was in for work.

    My Indy charged me £50, plus the mot fee, great guys :)

    Tucks up underneath nice. I prefer the snouted tailpipe to the straight.

    Is substantially quiter but runs better too with a complete exhaust. Pulls better at low rpm while the turbo is spooling and pedal seems more responsive 12176AA5-A636-447D-A381-3A0032FD62AA.jpeg

    Glad you are sorted.
    On a side note I like where you keep your spares.
    My ex used to get really wound up about that. I have half a Freelander ecu and some condensers a a cat on my setee right now.

    My dishwasher wags her tail but she doesn't do engine parts, she barks at the idea.
    Dunno why my X would keep dozens of dustcatchers from his mum and put them on shelves but he would moan about a half assembled laptop on the coffee table

    My exhaust? I got a stainless one from cat back. Trying to remember who from. Think it was stainlesssteelexhausts.com? Seem to recall about 200 notes. The pipe between the boxes seems to be of lower grade steel though and within a year started to show blemishes. I was somewhat disappointed although a few years on it seems to be holding together. There are loads of grades of stainless steel and mine definitely isn't top end. Only the "sports" exhaust was available in the single exhaust shape so mine has a straight out pipe that is massive! Looks more like it came off an Evo!

    The back box is at a very odd angle.
