BX GTI Front exhaust section

Post by ChrisS » Sat May 13, 2017 5:30 pm

My car has been laid up for a couple of years in my barn and has failed its MoT on the exhaust.

The garage cant get a replacement part and Pleiades cant help. Chevronics suggest getting one fabricated. Any other ideas?

Thanks

Genuine downpipes are easily the best ones!

Thanks. The garage have managed to weld it so will find out what life is left. In France (Vannes until today now Honfleur) at the moment and lots of lovely Citroens to look at!
