Possibly a long shot but has anyone got one in good condition?

Thanks, Jonathan

The problem you have is getting it off, if it’s been fitted for 30 years! And it may be just as broken as it’s quite common

Have you made a comparison on Xantia's manifold, do they fit? They don't seem to crack for some reason..
