    Hi,

    I've got a 3dr Golf 1.4 Ryder. The exhaust is broken in two places. I got a quote of £105 for the whole fix from Quick Fit.

    However I was speaking to a mate and he said I could spend around £70 on a good (how good, im not sure) exhaust that sounds and looks good, and fitted for around £60. Are this the right kind of prices? If this is the case anyone know where could I go in the North-London area, Enfield, to get it done?

    Thanks

    I paid £360 for my cat back custom system, one of my mates paid £260 for his Magnex one on his Civic.... AFAIK I think that £130 would be too cheap to get a full cat back stainless system

    My only requirements are that it looks and sounds better than the standard one. I bought the Golf for fairly cheap (although repairs have brought it up some what!!) You got any links to a website where i can take a look at some exhausts?

    Thanks

    I've just seen a Cobra exhaust for £68.99.

    Would something like that do?

    That seems to be just a backbox.

    Don't mean to pee on your chips but that Cobra "Universal Japanese" backbox will look totally out of place on your Golf.

    Also it sounds like you need a complete system, not just a backbox.

    £250 is way too much. I was hoping to spend £170 max. Looks like ill just get the standard quick-fit job.

    Thanks for the info.
