I need to get my car up on a ramp to get a decent look but I'm finding on roads that have any dips or certain speed bumps It sounds like part of the exhaust is impacting on the ground and sounds slightly loose, so I'm being wary until I can get it to a garage.

Usually I would try and get down to Poweritalia for something a bit more involved but if I take it to a general garage/Kwik fit type outfit, are they likely to be scratching there heads if their are any parts to be fixed/replaced considering the rarity of parts or are the exhaust parts standard/ easily available?

Thanks chaps smile

I've seen the centre clamp almost ripped off leaving the jaggy bit considerably lower, which then catches the bumpies


Thanks again, Photobucket.

Think I'll get it up in the air so see what's what and go from there. Whatever happens it will probably end up at Poweritalia at some point in the next couple of months.
