This moderator approval lark is a bit weird, I am on another forum with over 12K posts and never been vetted as it were..?? Untrustworthy types come on these forums then..??

Anyway, rear exhaust box is going and I am going to change for a Stainless box, they last longer..!! I had considered a sports exhaust box, but not sure if a diesel is worth the extra, has anybody done this extra exhaust spec route on a diesel..??

Thanks..!!

My original back box lasted ~14 years (only died last year as a mount snapped off), stock replacement was dirt cheap and it's not a difficult DIY fit back there - not sure a stainless one is going to gain you owt unless you're keeping the car for at least another decade!

Mine is 9 years old with 46,000 miles on it if that makes a difference I'm not sure. It looks pretty corroded but passed a mot a couple of months ago. My thoughts on a s/s one is it wouldn't look like a bag of 5hite after a couple of months but if a replacement fitted by kwikfit is cheap enough then that could be a no brainer.

Be careful, cheap silencers on Freelanders can be a pain, rattling baffles and rapid corrosion are the two main issues I've had to deal with,along with poor fit. Can't say I would buy anything off Kwikfit - Or Kick-fit as they are known amongst the garage trade...
