Stainless Steel Exhaust, MX5 Parts Dual Exit, MX5 Mk1

[SI136]

£249.00 inc Vat

by Graham Church Date Added: Thursday 13 May, 2010
Beware!!! If you want a smart, classy looking item, don\'t be fooled by cheap prices! This appears to be a nice piece (it truly does look great out of the box, welds and finish superb visually, sapparently solid construction etc etc)of kit but is not, in my opinion, fit for purpose; it will not last anywhere near as long as you may imagine.

Take my advice and spend 3 to 5 times as much on and Ansi or similar item, and save yourself a long running headache. You\'ll need to cut the rear bumper to make it fit, which in itself is not a great deal, but once you\'ve done that, when you then discover that the exhaust does not last, you\'ll kick yourself for having not bought a real quality item.

On my second one of these now, 1st one replaced by MX5 parts as;

a; the brackets that hold the exit pipes to the back box rusted away at the welds, resulting in a nasty rattling.

b, all the silencer wadding blew out of the back box resulting in a total lack of any silencing whatsoever, after only approx 20,000 miles at most! Loved the \'naughty noisiness\' of the kit when 1st fitted, but as time went on and the silencer section lost any effectiveness, it became both unbearable and a liability when the boys in blue were around! This is a stainless steel item, so would appear to offer a long life due to its rust cheating capability - shame it doesn\'t last as a silencer though...

Now on my second one, been on the car for about a year and a half, has done less than 15,000 miles, and it is awful...all silencing gone again, awful rattling emanating from inside the back box, just no fun at all any more.

As it\'s been replaced once by MX5 parts I don\'t expect they\'ll offer to replace it again, and besides which, I\'m not sure I\'d want them to, it probably won\'t last any better than the 1st 2!!!

Had almost identical problem with the silenced decat pipe which has now been replaced twice by MX5 parts, both times because they had both lost their silencing capabilities; when I cut open the last one, it was totally hollow, just a bloated tube with the perforated diffuser internals, no silencer material at all. It was made clear to me by MX5 Parts that they would replace this one as a gesture of goodwill, and wouldn\'t do so again if the replacement also fails. I\'m sure it will, so I\'ve no faith at all in these exhaust products. Real shame as MX5 parts has been superb in all other respects; service, delivery, availabilty, prices etc; but these items, well there\'s only one word for them...PANTS...
Editors Note: We have these exhaust products for many years now and they have sold in great numbers with few problems. Given that the vehicle has now had two exhausts and a similar problem with a number of de-cat pipes it may well indicate an issue with the vehicle. If the vehicle has suffered with a misfire or fueling issue then the exhaust material will not survive. Given that these conditions will melt the ceramic honeycomb within a cat the packing materials used within the exhausts will also not survive.
