Last year the exhaust on my 2002 Grand Espace III 2.2DCi was found to be rusted through just before the wheel arch, this I had welded for the MOT.
This year the exhaust has gone in two places rendering a new system to be fitted. with the added problem of the existing joint from the Cat to the first silencer was broken.
After trying several main motor factors and exhaust companies none could guarantee that their systems would fit the Grand Espace and that it would be a main dealer part only.
I next looked at various options and came across a company in Walsall "MIJ Performance" who quoted to fit a new system from the Cat to tail in Stainless Steel with a lifetime warranty for about the same money as the Renault dealers. I did get a little extravagant and have a twin system fitted to try and balance the rear end of the car aesthetically.

Cheers Sparky
