Hiya

I have the Peugeot 206 GTi 180 and the exhausts has gone. I seen it on ramps and i will need the middle section and the back box replaced. Peugeot dealership quoted me £640 fitted :eek:

For this price could i fit an after market stainless steel system? Anyone know where to look? Im not looking for cheap, i want one thats going to go nice witht the car.

for a lot less than £600 you could try Blueflame, in Skem, or Miltek. Both well respected custom exhaust manufacturers

I'd go powerflow and get a full system, probably a lot less than £640 and for that you will get a lifetime (of the car ) warranty.

Once I'm finished doing up my house I'm tempted to put a new exhaust on my regular 138 bhp 206 GTI... the cat is fine, any idea how much a cat back Powerflow system would cost?

I thought you'd be handy with pipework, Blue!

Aren't you working for a water company?

I'd look at German and Swedish www.gsfcarparts.com

I'd buy a middle and back box and fit them yourself. A doddle of a job.
:rotfl: your right i do - but all i know about cars is how to drive them, not fix them. Every company i call aren't sure wether its genuine parts or not that there quoting me. www.exhaustsdirect.co.uk quoted me £473 delivered for genuine back box and 3rd party mid section. Will this work okay?

If your going OEM style then both GSF & ECP offer the goods at knockdown prices, for standard models anyway. Make sure you have a buy can of proper heat resistant paint as well though. The finish on my last pipe was pretty poor near the welds. The last thing you want is premature rusting of the new pipe.

All of the custom makers listed above have good reputations and nothing sounds nicer than a full stainless system:thumbsup:

I've just paid £280 including fitting to a company called Blueflame for a cat-back system for my Clio 182. That was a group buy price, but still the exhaust probably wont cost any more than about £300 anyway I reckon.

Decent exhaust too, makes a decent enough sound, and I feel it gives minor torque and power improvements.

Biggest problem is that the majority of custom exhaust builders aren't any where near me (in Aberdeen). I contacted euro car parts. They maybe able to help me out though i am finding it difficult to workout if its genuine parts they are quoting me, as they seem unsure also. Thanks for the advice i will continue looking

Yes - fitted cost would be £780 :eek: Cheaper going to peugeot dealership

Now there's something you don't here every day!!!

Alot of our GT4OC guys go to hayward and scott.. as they have a good grasp on how to make a good upgrade stainless steel system... so that it actually can give you a few more beans as well as look good (and last a long time).

To be honest for that sort of price you might as well go for a well built custom system.


Ummm... i can't remember if the cat is part of the middle section or not on the GTi 180 (i left peugeot about the time they bought that out) if so that's where most of your money would be going.

I was suprised that peugeot quoted me cheaper than Kwik Fit:confused:
The CAT is in the front part of the exhaust! Luckily thats not needing replaced. I've hearing mixed things about changing for custom built exhaust, many people have said that the system on the GTi 180 is so good there would be no bennefit, unless it was stainless steel for obvious reasons.

I think that the price quoted is that much because..

1. the exhaust will be dealer only
2. i have been told that kwik fit cant buy direct fron dealers, so a third party will have to add their handling charge
3. then there is the kwik fit fitting and warranty charge

it will all add up

Anyone going to kwit sh!t wants their heads examined IMO.
kwik fit is the quick and simple option. Thats all. Lets face it they are probably more experienced in fitting of exhausts/tyres/breaks than any other garage as they do it day in day out.

I managed to secure a second hand exhaust from a GTi 180 for £60. This inludes center section (which i need now) and also the back box. Not bad if lasts for 6-12+ months i'll be happy. Meantime im going to make enquiries into a full stainless steel custom exhaust system.

In Scotland, but 200 miles from Aberdeen, are Meerkat Engineering. They are currently doing me a manifold & system for my rally car in stainless for around £640. They have an excellent reputation and have just done the system for Colin McRae's Mk2 Escort (I saw pictures of it and it's a work of art) they also did the system for the UK's fastest Skyline.
