Thanks for that, I will keep an eye out for your dealers analysis of this problem. Was hoping it is nothing serious, and that it can wait until first oil change :thumb:
P.s. I will post some pictures of the new car...if it stays clean for long enough!

Turns out it is indeed the bracket/spring of the Monza making the noise, I have got under the car and moved the spring about a bit, greased the flap up again and will take it for a drive to see if it's cured, if not they said they can replace under warranty but to be fair I am pretty sure I can fix it by adjusting the spring slightly.

    Porthos does the 180 now come with a centre section in the exhaust?

    Ah okay I was misinformed then. I thought it did.

    With the backbox being stainless, is any other part of the exhaust? Just curious thats all.

    Ours is going to my exhaust guy when it arrives for the tips cut off and 2 slash cut ones welded onto the Monza.

    I think the whole exhaust is made on stainless steel now, not just the backbox?

    Could you write us up a guide on how it is done Benn as it is something I would like to do with my own Monza. If it's a simple job I will be interested in changing the tips!

    Yes the two exhaust's will look GREAT, probably exactly what I'd do, keep the monza with the sound but with the twin pipe look, perfect.

    Not sure on the rest, looks the same stainless to me.

    Yeah not a problem. We are sacrificing the tips from our current MM bombardone exhaust for it. Will stick photos and the cost once its done.

    I imagine buying tips from Halfords or any online Exhaust retailer is possible as long as they fit the current diameter of the Monza pipe?

    Yeah I would imagine that will be fine, when we cut the original ones off I will take measurements for people.
