Can deffinatly do alot beter than that matey!

The back end of my exhaust was changed last week due to corrosion. I got the back end for £159 and the bloke said for the whole exhaust system £559.

I got it from a local exhaust place so my advise would best to just ring round your local garages and see who will do it for the better price.

BMW do like to rip people off so i wouldnt give them your money lol

Good luck mate!

You could either have a look round the classifieds or eBay for one that someone has taken off when putting on a performance exhaust, or even get a nice miltak exhaust put on there yourself for less than that;)

How old is it?

Milteks are popular - apparently they don't affect performance - some do with backpressure...

Miltek is popular
I have a Milltek Special on my MINI ONE (March 2004). It gives a deeper noise at idle, and at very high RPMs has a very nice screaming note to it. It's a tad louder than stock but it's not ostentatious and won't irritate the neighbours if you should leave/arrive home late at night. It's a good quality stainless steel system and I think you'd be pleased with it.

All the best,
Andrew.
