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.

Hi sparky looking good i must admit iam jealous since my exhaust went last year i have fitted a stainless steel back box as the middle silencer went shortly after the rear last year so i replaced the middle silencer from the cat to the back box and i then fitted the stainless steel back box to tidy the back up,here is a pic i hope you like,iam a bit confused your local motor factors could not supply you a normal system but then again mines is a 2.0 16v but hay the one you have looks betterwell done all the best Donald

Currently in Donald's garage:
2005 Mercedes Benz C200 Classic SE Kompresser & 1998 Fiat Cinquecento Fire Sporting,some may say i could do far better?,i say i could do far worse.
