Today have got to remove the failed front pipe.. Dammned thing has broken in the flexi. The outer mesh is fine it is the inner corrogated bit that has failed and this pipe was new in January.

This is the second one to fail like this .............................. first one was the replacemnt on Blue and now the one on the 75th has failed. Obviously cheaply made and the supplier wants it back to inspect as I made a complaint.. of course I have to pay for everything and will not have an exhaust while ths is being done but that does not seem to bother them one little bit.

Anyone have a suggestion where to get a decent 4 bolt flange front pipe that won't fall apart in a ew thousand miles?

If the rest of the still newish downpipe is in good shape, cut out the fractured flexi section and replace it with one off ebay. They have clamps both ends. Available for about twenty quid posted last time I looked.
John why would you do that when the pipe is still under warrenty?

That is like condoning poor quality material being used. As it is only a few months old it is going back!

I had one from RSJ, an ebay seller, on my F for four years without a problem.It was a few years back so their pipes may have changed,but with a 2 year warranty and a good price should be worth a punt.

Thank you for the information. We have been very busy so the pipe is still on the car so today in the damp wil have to remove it and get it sent back then hopefully it will be sorted next week.
