How many exhaust systems have you had fitted in the 20K miles, I've had 3 and a new clutch. Beat that if you can.

Hi EddieC, just wondering is your Carens Auto or Manual transmission.. :unsure:

Sorry to hear that about your exhaust, more of us usually mod the exhaust to have more power when its a straight thru. But the authority here doesn't allow this type of mod... :lol:

Was this a similar cost to the 10k service?

£264 is less than we paid for a dealer service on our 1994 Vauxhall Corsa...

We are currently at just over 6K so still have time to save up :p
