    if anyone is still looking for a replacement exhaust I can highly recommend Charlie Metcalfe at CSK fabrications in Pocklington, East Yorks.  Look him up on the internet or on Facebook.

    I asked him to replicate as closely as possible an original exhaust in stainless for my 2008 (155hp) GPA.  It is beautiful and very refined.  Sounds very like the original except above about 5,000rpm.  I love it.

    Hi, all in & fitted from the cat back to the tail pipe it cost me £760 which I think was a real bargain... I think that Charlie may have charged me a little bit less that normal 'retail' for the front section and flexi-pipe (as I hadn't asked him top do this in the first place).

    ... but he makes everything from scratch. I guess quoted cost depends on what bits he has in stock and so on. Sorry I cannot be more definite.  I can say though that he wouldn';t give me a price until he'd been under my car and measured up.

    Thanks for the info. Very useful - have saved this post to my 'Abarth folder' for future reference. Certainly looks like a nice result.
