    unless your pipe is 2.5in you will need one of these sleeves too:

    about £25 from anyone who can make stuff like that <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=';)'>

    That's about £490 + fitting. &nbsp;Your standard backbox is about £350 +VAT though so it's not that much more expensive if you think about it.

    &quot;she's worth it&quot; and all that <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=';)'>

    part number A 202 490 23 01 &quot;exhaust muffler&quot; £490.07 +VAT (I got some discount from the stealership because I begged)

    Here it is under a stock 1997+ (facelift) bumper (on a c240 no less):

    besides, MB build their cars properly and everything can be adjusted and tweaked to fit.

    They can be adjusted in height by turning the hanger bolt, so It will fit with the stock bumpers no problems <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':)'>

    Hi

    I have seen some of the sebring units. They are pretty good quality and have the closest oval shape to the AMG oval.

    I hear what you say re &quot;the privilege&quot; however, I had a remus box on my 190. The #### silencer rusted away. It also never sat right and kept on hitting my rear apron.

    The benefit with the AMG/Carlsson/Brabus/Lorinzer units is that they are built by merc specilalists. The above do sit well and I would say that on a motor like a benz a few extra pounds does not matter. Incidentally the after market units are not cheap. I apaid in teh region of £400 for my remus (fitted) and went through two boxes within 60k!!

    Greg here is the part number for a twin oval Exhuast EXACTLY like Shude's but it will fit on your car without any mods <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':)'>

    This may seem like a stoopid question but I presume that all the exhaust units you guys have been discussing are all in mild steel? Anyone know where to source a stainless steel exhaust? i.e. fitted for the life of the car. Or are the AMG units made from stainless?

    Cheers guys,

    Fuzzer, I use the word green with the ikon tag codes, can you use html instead?

    *EDIT* looks like you can <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':D'> cool thanks Jason!

    Thanks

    If you Merc has a cat, the silencer WILL be stainless to some degree. It may be a twin skin case, with an outer from alu coated steel, but the inner WILL be St Steel. Later spec cars will be full spec stainless throughout.

    It all depends on the grade of St.Steel though.
    The factory boxes may be only 409 pipework, which still &quot;rusts&quot; to some degree (its only stainLESS by the way) where as total aftermarket St.Steel exhausts will be full 304 (top grade)

    The new Range Rover has a full 304 St.steel exhaust from the factory, I would imagine high spec mercs to be of similar quality. The center section on my old S class, was the original &quot;Eberspacher&quot; unit, still holding together after 18 years.

    I will ask the Q of what current MB exhausts are made from.

    Thanks for the info Geoff,

    I guess no one around would make an exhaust from 316 or 316L grade stainless.
