Let's see if mine did :?:


I can't see yours Paul... Looks like I killed it. Sorry. Just upload it again and all will be good...

I see the cheap Xantia V6 exhausts are still available on the 'bay...

Do a search on 'Xantia V6 Exhaust' and three different suppliers come up...

Has anyone had any experience with any of the vendors?

Or shall I just take pot luck and choose one at random?

I'm just thinking that £60 for a full system will be much cheaper than trying to find just a back box...

I guess they'll all sound OK... Mine is very blowy now...

Good to see you have your avatar back :)

Jim if you can get a good mid box and back box as the noise could change for the worse :(

Has yours still got an original CAT Jim?

Yep, original big cat Will. In fact the present exhaust is a genuine one...

Indeed. Then you'll have a good stash of centre boxes.

Jim, the time on posts is one hour behind BST. My PC clock currently says 20:34.

Jim why not just patch it? Or is it the joints?

It's on Zulu time ;) I'll check the server time setup tomorrow. I likely forget the BST bit when setting up the server. Sorry...

Should be OK now. The server time was right but the board was set to GMT with BST adjustment disabled... I've now corrected it..

KP wrote:Jim why not just patch it? Or is it the joints?


To be honest I've not looked closely Will, I just know it's blowing and my efforts at patching are never very successful so it'll be replaced... It's hardly worth a bodge when a full replacement system can be had for a shade under £70 all-in...

Just thinking about ordering a system from ebay...

On the subject of time, I found my profile was also set to GMT without the BST correction so if anyone is still showing the wrong time, check that...

I can understand that Jim, but will an ebay jobby last as long as the real deal has done? Baked bean tins last years and years loo

The ones I've seen that have originated in Poland don't seem bad Will. They're a bit roughly finished around the welds but the metal is heavy enough by the looks of it...

Thing is I don't eat baked beans so getting hold of the tins will be difficult for me. In fact I eat very little tinned food and mostly what I do is tinned fish ad those tins are all wrong and far too thin... I suppose a red kidney bean or flageolot bean tin might do...

Same tins Jim ;)

The polish ones could do but depends on how you want your exhaust tips to look and if how long you are keeping the car...

I don't really worry about what my exhaust tips look like as I never see them when I'm driving...

My V6 is a keeper :wink:
