    Exhaust advice

    Need some advice on what to do, Mot due on the 8th and my exhaust has started blowing. Had a look underneath last night, and it was being held together by the rust!
    Need a replacement that wont break the bank, the missus doesnt start her new job for 6 weeks so cant go throwing cash at the car at the moment. although i'm sure a stainless option will be cheaper than Volvo parts.

    cheers Pete.

    where abouts is the hole?

    partsforvolvosonline do a cat back system, depending on model - the t4 is around 200quid,

    quik-fit etc do a centre box piece for 115 fitted

    Cheers guys, the hole (if you can call it that) is both sides of the joint between the rear box and middle section. So cat back system it is.
    looks like Jetex is the way forward then, the one on partsforvolvosonline is 250 as its a 01 t4, and its jetex anyway. Got a qoute from the local powerflow guy tonight and they wanted 320 for the cat back!

    I have a cat back system in good condition sitting in the loft. Covered less than 50k.

    Here's a pic. Not most attractive looking but its sound throughout.



    Let me know if interested, not after alot for it.

    Hi Pete, I'm not sure if the exhausts are the same on both the S40 and V40. Maybe someone can assist with this query?
