Obviously cheaply made and the supplier wants it back to inspect as I made a complaint.. of course I have to pay for everything and will not have an exhaust while ths is being done but that does not seem to bother them one little bit.

Anyone have a suggestion where to get a decent 4 bolt flange front pipe that won't fall apart in a ew thousand miles?
If the rest of the still newish downpipe is in good shape, cut out the fractured flexi section and replace it with one off ebay. They have clamps both ends. Available for about twenty quid posted last time I looked.
