    some fitting chappies put on "equivalent" exhausts that may have more, or less, sections than the original.

    I once had a one-piece fitted instead of the original 3 piece, it was entertaining watching 14foot of tube being plaited around axles and fuel tank.

    What type of A class ? 168 or 169 ?

    The 168 exhaust is one piece from the cat back.

    From your previous posts I assume you still have the W168 2002 A170 CDI?

    On W169 diesel after the centre section it is just a straight pipe no rear / back box, the tailpipe trim is just bolted on to the end of this straight pipe.

    Seems it is the same on the W168. Box & Tail Pipe MERCEDES A-CLASS (168) | eBay
