Time for New Exhaust System, Seeking Suggestions

I have two vehicles in our family fleet that are starting to growl after winter took its toll. I’m trying to figure out the best place to take to vehicles to get the exhaust systems replaced. A mate at work suggested taking them to a local chain store, a place I have used for tires, but nothing else...

Did you order this radiator? How did it work out for you?

My first thought was to wonder if it would arrive in one piece if it shipped from China. It doesn't take much shipping abuse to tear up a radiator.

Pete, I am incredibly impressed. I did not think it was feasible to drop the car that low.

Not only a major engineering feat, but an artistic statement, too.

How well does it drive sitting that low? I assume you have to be exceedingly careful turning.

Learn something new everyday, even if it is from a long time ago.

I did not know I could sub the Xantia units doing that. That is going to save a few headaches for trying to locate the "right one".

How much difference would it put on your rates to set it at £3000?

For insurance purposes it would be better to over estimate than to under estimate the value.

You can be sure if your insurer thinks you are out of line, they will let you know.
