Yes I'd read it 3 times before I saw your post as well, Billy.

Still:- "The system is guaranteed for as long as you own the car, and this is a fully transferable warranty." obviously clarifys the situation.

:lol: :lol: :lol: Well spotted, Jeremy. Another clear as mud description from the manafacturers.
I wouldn`t like to tell Mr Hollo-Tas (perhaps it should be Hollo-Gesture?) this though because if he can walk from Leeds to Carshalton in a `few minutes` he must be very fit and could out-run my car!

I really wish I had installed one of those back in '93 when I first got my BX --- when I think of the amount of exhaust parts I've changed over the years. It's a pity there isn't an equally durable and long lasting material for CV boots.

Hi Folks,

Just a tip, when fitting new or sections of exhausts, smear a layer of silicon sealant on the mating surfaces.

This will ensure they come apart with ease in the future...

Thanks for contacting us,

Am I the only one who thought Carshalton was in London and didn`t know of a train that got from Leeds to London Victoria in 40 minutes?
Yes, saw that too, (& the guarantee) thought about posting but then decided that maybe they had two locations :?
Or maybe they moved to Leeds asnd decided to use their old ad. :?
Anyway there is no doubt where Carshalton Beeches station is : :)

Yes, i spotted both strange statements in the e-mail they sent me, i decided to ignore them as i wasnt going to get one fitted anyway.

Can anyone find a company that makes a s/s exhaust cheaper?
