    Custom exhaust or a new standard. Where are you based? I ask as I just had a custom one made in Aylesbury, the service was first class.

    I'm in Manchester. How much did your custom one cost? It seems a bit extreme to get a new system when I just have a small hole in one of the tail pipes

    Just have some new tips put on??

    Most exhaust shops will quickly make you some up? really doesn't take long!

    I had some done on my MG ZT 190+ a couple of years back.

    They cut the bent down ends off and put some straight stainless tips on for me.

    Simples.

    Full custom cost me 360. As said you could just have some new tips welded on. Shouldn't be more than a hundred for that.
