    I'm getting a drone from my exhaust from 1800 - 2000 rpm. its only there and in every gear. anyone else ever get this? At first i thought it was a loose heat sheild or similar, but now definately sounds like exhaust drone...

    Hole somewhere, or something other than heatshield vibrating off something else?

    Loose exhaust rubber somewhere?

    does the exhaust shake excessivly on tickover? the flexible part of the frontpipe can start to seize up causing this and the droning your on about.....

    there's a couple of threads about this and I thought it was my injectors! but it now seems the sound is coming from the back. it tend to stop after the car gets very warm?

    yes, this is likely to be the case. It was mentioned on my MOT and i get the same noise at the same RPM.
    To find it, look under the bonnet just behind your turbo. you will see the down pipe going to the exhaust will a flexible bit of pipe. This is the bit that is going on mine.

    have you changed your tyres? these can drone at certain road speeds. Just a thought
