There's a load of authorised Powerflow dealers about Andy, try their website for centres near you. CRD in Mid Calder did Lyndsay's and it is awesome :D

Heatshields go on eBay for £50 these days... :err:

Actually, don't the Mk2s already have them?

Cheers mate, cant get a local powerflow dealer up on the computer cos its blocked in here!

50 quid??? ah well may as well get it of a dealer then.

Ive got one mate, but i need another one for the other side, for the second exit of the pipe :)

Means my blueflame will be off and hopefully moving onwards sometime next month.

360? i could prob push that. but ive heard of getting full systems for 300!

Do they do different styles of tail pipes?? i want the porsche look ones, the two circles kind of lapping over each other? need to find out if theyd fit through the heat shield though.

Coming up first is Alloys, lowered and exhaust anyways, so i may as well get them all fitted at the same time/place anyways.

The heat shield costs 58.75 quid from the main dealer. pricey.

My personal opinion of MMV is not a good one, they have never done any work on my car but my cousin got an exhaust fitted by them to his Megane Coupe and all he had was bother from it. Saying that, they were always more than helpful when he took the car back to them and would fix it no problem but the added hassle of taking it back all the time ****ed him off. Also heard other people in Falkirk talk about them and heard some right dodgey stories about them.
