My exhaust it knocking as a hanger is missing off the backbox and putting off a new unit do to the cost.

However the hoffmann exhausts looks to good to be true, or are they ok?

Not had any experience of them but I have standard centre section with a scorpion backbox for sale.

Centre section is a pattern part but is as new (covered about 100 miles) backbox is welded to centre section with not the neatest weld but would take £40 if you were to collect?

If the rest of your genuine rear silencer is intact I'd weld a new hangar on or get an exhaust place to do that.

I was thinking this but called a few places and they were less than helpful. Shouldn't be to hard to add one surly?

That's odd. Have you been trying normal garages? A custom exhaust fabricating shop should be more willing to do it for you?

The genuine silencers are really good so it's worth trying to get some more life out of if you can.

Got any mates who can weld?

Thanks RetroPug, you encouraged me to ring around again.

Called my usual garage and its booked in Saturday morning, don't know why I didn't call him first. The exhaust guys (even those who fabricate whole systems) didn't want to know. They didn't even recommend one of their systems????

No worries.

That's odd as there's a really well known exhaust place nearish to me that did loads of little jobs for me before I bought a welder. I guess I had already had had a custom centre-section made up by them and given them some bigger business though.

Don't ask, not impressed with the custom places Sad

However my local added a new mount and swapped me wheels round (fronts really low). I then said how much did he want and he said not to worry!!!! Exhaust is currently not hitting anything so I'm a happy man
