Car was getting noisy - actually started sounding really good but realised the centre pipe was about to fall away. Vauxhall Green supplied a nice new centre section that went straight on (once I'd got the rear box off).
Did notice on ebay there were some replacement centre pipes which omit the middle silencer. Wondered what that would sound like?

Car is mouse-like again now.

This may be my option for next time, however the new ctr section from VG is thick gauge and should last well. I think the back box will be next to go.

Found this vid with the Sportex pipe - that was indeed how it had started to sound.
