Stainless Steel exhaust

Postby Martin Antoni » Wed Nov 30, 2016 10:58

Hello, I've Read that there was a Deal with larini systems for a stainless steel exhaust. Is this still valid?

I wrote to larini, but never got a response.

My muffler and the pipes are pretty rusty, so next year I will need a replacement.

Do you know any source to get a new one or a contact to larini?

Regards, Martin

I spoke to Larini a number of years ago (8?) and they had no cappo exhausts in stock. They did not seem interested in doing any more, certainly not at a sensible price.

The last "Latest SCORE" (October 07) had an advert with a contact number of 0870 777 9060 and prices of Normal RRP: £423 Special RRP to SCORE Members: £300.75

I've not needed a new exhaust on my Cappo, but when I needed one for my Suzuki Grand Vitara, the prices for mild steel were astronomic (I think all the specialists were offering was the Suzuki parts), so I tried a stainless steel specialist. They made me a "lifetime" system from stock pipes and mufflers, bending everything to fit, including the downpipes (V6) and the joint where they meet. It's a bit raspier than the original, but that was 10 years and maybe 35k miles ago, and not a single problem. And it was only 2/3 the price of the MS.

I can't remember the name of the franchise, but it was on the western outskirts of Basingstoke.
