2008 Clubman Cooper S Exhaust

Morning Everyone

I have a 2008 Cooper S Clubman and the exhaust has started blowing. Does anyone know if there is a company that produces a stainless replacement with the same tailpipes as original? I am not interested in a performance replacement and I don't want it to sound any louder than standard. I know it sounds daft but it is my wife's car and she won't be happy if it is louder and pops and bangs.

Also, a technical question. If I change the exhaust for a non-standard item will the car need to be re-mapped or something similar?

Sorry for sounding like a complete fool but I have no experience of this stuff.

Cheers

Are you replacing the whole exhaust system or just specific section?

Sport and de-cat exhaust will most likely need to be re-mapped.

If you're not interested in performance, just replace like for like.

I never thought it might just be one section. How many are there? I really just want a 'like for like' but thought a stainless system would be just future proofing. I guess I need to crawl under the car and have a look !

I'm no expert, but full system consists of

Used to be back box, mid section & downpipe.

Have you had it checked out from a garage you trust, as it might just need gaskets and clamps.

One time my exhaust was leaking, I visited a garage I've never been to before, they tried to sell me the full exhaust system.

Then I went to a BMW/MINI specialist for 2nd opinon, all that was needed was new clamps.

I am going to have a look today and see for myself before taking to the garage. If it needs a full system then I will have a look at my options but I would prefer a standard spec stainless system if that is produced by someone. Thanks for your advice.
