    Exhaust bracket

    Just a quick, should my car have the exhaust mount in the transmission tunnel? As it doesn't but I noticed that a pre facelift had one? My has the bolts for one but no bracket or hook on the standard exhaust?

    I am also wondering this as i got a second hand Milltek and there is a mounting on it with nowhere to attach it to on the car.

    I also had the same thought when I had my longlife done.

    Have four bolts holding on heat shield where the centre hanging bracket is. Maybe The exhaust just comes with it due to some model having it and some not.

    My exhaust doesn't sag or sit low so I'm guessing I just don't need one.

    I think that facelift and pre-facelift are different from what iv seen, I'm going to fit the prefacelift bracket to mine as I need more support nearer the xs power sports cat, as my exhaust removed itself yesterday on a speedbump

    Also had mine come apart, so longlife welded centre pipe to cat issue solved.
