It's a long time ago (2003) but my mate had one put on his Nova! He used the one in Leeds and I was with him while he waited as they did a down-pipe back system. They are defo in the "chav" type aftermarket catagory but seem to be the best of a bad bunch. They listened to what he wanted, used quality parts and took reasonable care. I'd recomend waiting while they do it so you can see what they are up to, they seemed happy for you to watch and ask questions etc. He was very happy with the system, especialy once it had coked up after 6 months.

I was very happy with the work at the Leeds branch. Not seen a better fitting custom build from the few i've had. Welds are all top notch too, and like said are happy for your bespoke requirements.

Think it was about £220 for a downpipe backwards build for my old saloon. You get a CP discount too.

My ex had a downpipe back system done by the Leeds branch on her Passat.
They didn't remove the cat as she'd asked and there were a couple of problems with the fit of the system too.
These were rectified by the Cardiff branch who were spot on.

My Longlife exhaust was fitted at the Cardiff branch in April 2000 - and they've always been great at rectifying any small niggles I've had either FOC or cheap.

ive recently had a long life exhaust made in doncaster took about 3 hours and its sound awesome! done by a young guy of about 23 but he did a really good job! neat n tidy welds and the tail pip is level on the back box not bent as ive seen on some other custom exhausts! 10 out of 10!
