F%cking aftermarket exhausts!!
The old tailpipe on the EB has rusted out just on the bend where it goes around the diff. I rang around and got some prices, about $120 for a genuine Ford item compared to about $60 for an aftermarket job. So I bought the cheapie took it to the mechanic to get it fitted (needed to get the chrome tip c/o from the old pipe as well). Farking bodgy POS doesn't line up properly.:fmad:
The end sticks out nearly as far as the towbar and hangs down too low and too much to the right. :fmad: Went to the exhaust shop and it's going to cost another $50 to either cut and shut the tailpipe or make a new one from scratch. :rolleyes: Apparently there are only a couple of aftermarket suppliers that can do these muffler/tailpipes with the correct bends in them, and the brand I have isn't one.:thumbdown
You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.
