    You know they're about £100ish, and you will have to import from Japan...?

    You know you want one of these:

    They looked good didn't they, but I have not put any effort into finding any UK suppliers.

    £100 is a bit steep for 3 inches of bolt on chrome trim though!

    If my back box ever goes (which I hope it doesn't), I would consider the AMG replacement accessory (not a cut up C43 original likes Shudes).

    If my exhaust failes before I sell the car on, I will be upset though!

    Mine is not a cut up original! &nbsp;It is a 100% stock c43 exhaust rear section! &nbsp;There is a sleeve welded onto my old pipework so the c43 exhaust pipe fits, that's all.

    The c43 exhaust rear section is £600, the accessory version is £700.

    Guys,

    I really can't spend that kinda wedge on a Zorst when the one on there is perfect....

    Your right though £100 is steep for the trim Graham..

    I rang Motion Styling in Bradford, they said they'd custom make me a complete stainless exhaust with oval AMG style tips for £250, including fitting. &nbsp;Maybe you should speak to a local exhaust shop, see if they can make something up for you, maybe just weld the tips onto your current exhaust?

    Shude - I just re -read my post. It sounded worse than I meant!

    I know your exhaust is a complete original C43 item, I just meant that it wasn't designed to directly fit our cars. &nbsp;<img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/blush.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':blush:'>

    Yep. &nbsp;I might have considered the accessory version if I'd known it existed (#### stealership denied knowledge too). &nbsp;The old c230k box was puny compared to the new c43 one, it's twice the size! &nbsp;When I turned up to the garage to check on my car I heard a fantastic deep rumbling noise coming from a car and I thought it was my dad's porsche (in for a re-spray), but when I turned the corner it was my own c230k being backed out of the garage side-door, because of the larger box and slightly larger diameter pipework the exhaust now makes a pleasant rumbling noise - the accessory item will not do this (see Koolvin's AMG accessory c36-style exhaust - it's silent). &nbsp;Plus the c43 exhaust is cheaper <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':)'>

    You could try these people for a quote on a complete stainless system. Longlife Stainless Steel Exhausts

    They quoted me about £200 for my C180, I thought I had a blow but it was just a loose joint so I never had it done.

    They can make just about anything you want and make it sound how you want too.
