Hi All,

My exhaust has gone , held together with baked bean tin and jubilee clips at the moment. Sad

Saw the advert for "Longlife" exhausts on here . Have booked in for this Friday to have a stainless one fitted , going to cost £369 inc VAT and fitting with a lifetime guarantee , which I thought was not bad value seeing that an ordinary exhaust is going to cost about £150 and will only last about 3 years.

They agreed to knock off 10% for POCUK members. Very Happy

I will let you know how I get on

Cheers

Nige

Well , the new exhaust has been fitted . Top notch job , professional company. Even lent me a courtesy car .

When you order a new system , they ask you what you want it tuned for, ie power , sporty sound etc.

I asked for maximum torque with a bit of a sporty note . Not sure about the sporty note , but I definately have more torque .

Would thoroughly recommend Longlife Exhausts .

Cheers

PostPosted: Tue Feb 12, 2008 21:00    Post subject: Longlife Exhausts, Plymouth Reply with quote

The rear flange had broken off the centre section of the exhaust on my Mk2 2.8 LWB. Most of the local exhaust specialists didn't want to know because the car's a grey import. Those that did wanted around £200 for the centre section and tailpipe and extra to fit the extended hanger that the bod who fitted my towbar should have but didn't.

Then I remembered the advert on this site for Longlife and also remembered that I found out too late that how reasonable they are at the time I replaced the exhaust on my Citroen van. I'm not at liberty to tell you exactly the deal they gave me but the undiscounted price was significantly less than £350 and the price I paid for a custom system with a transferable lifetime warranty was much less than I'd have thought. They even re-routed the system at the rear and put on a custom deflector so that any soot goes under or around my caravan rather than over the front of it. The car seems to run more smoothly and feels more responsive to boot. I'm very pleased and impressed.

When I asked, they said they'd do at least a 10% discount for club members. Give them a ring on 01752 266566 if you're in the Plymouth area and need an exhaust. Their address is 19-21 Alvington Street, Cattedown, Plymouth PL4 0QL.

HTH,

I needed a new exhaust and phoned Longlife for a quote . £370.00 for the lot . Mentioned  POCUK , got a 10% reduction and paid £333.00 which included vat , fitting and the choice of a nice quiet note out the back .( I'm too old for all that noise ) , anyway , very pleased with the result and a lifetime guarantee with the ability of passing the guarantee on to the next owner . Highly recommend the firm and their fitters in Bridport Dorset .

AND FINALLY (!) we now ALSO offer BMC carbon induction kits (CDA) which offer up to an extra 12 bhp for £220 + fitting. Read all about them at: http://www.bmcairfilters.com/infoCDA.asp

Over 8 tailpipes (from 2" to 3.5" rolled in or out) come at no extra charge AS PART OF YOUR JOB PRICE and can be viewed at our site: www.tailpipes.co.uk under the category "Tailpipes - Standard".

We have been doing this for over 16 years and know we can give you the sound you are looking for.

All Longlife systems are custom built and fitted with care (in about 3 hours by appointment )-,
uniquely for you and your particular car make and model.
Our booking times are: 8 AM, 11 AM and 2 PM Monday-Friday and 8 AM & 10:30 AM Saturday.

Courtesy cars are usually available at a charge of £5/day.

Please understand that we sell a quality, value-added, lifetime warranted product (CATS are warranted for 1 year)
made from the best stainless steel and therefore we will NOT be the cheapest exhaust you can find.
Our unique exhaust systems will give you added power and better fuel economy (up to 10%).

Lower priced exhaust systems are made from mild steel which normally rust through within three years.
The benefits a of A complete system to you will be:

1. Due to our silencers' flow-through rather than baffled design you will almost certainly save money on fuel cost because of reduced engine back pressure.

2. We offer a lifetime warranty on all our exhausts systems (except CATS) so you will never have to replace the exhaust system we build on your car again. You will not have the hassle of having to replace an exhaust every 2-4 years once youn install a Longlife exhaust.

3. Your car engine will put more power to the driven wheels and use less power to overcome exhaust resistance.

4. The quality Longlife system will be designed with your requirement in mind.
You can choose from one of fourteen standard tail pipes or take your choice from our range (they cost slightly more).
Have it in most cases in the same position as the existing tailpipe, or in the number and position you want (subject to the car under-body design).

Please telephone us at 01454 501439 for an appointment, or just for an informal chat about the Longlife system, the original and most respected bespoke quality system available to every motorist.

Regards.

Hi.

Very pleased to see this thread is still alive and customers are still happy with our product and service.  Would you please be able to change the telephone number to 0800 433 4790 as I have now discontinued the old 0870 number.

I'm also always pleased to hear from forum members who I can help out on price for.

Kind Regards

Jason - Longlife

Just had a Longlife sytem fitted at Ashford supplier, Kent. Asked if the price included a 10% discount for Pajero Forum members and was told they don't do discounts! Had to pay £350 + VAT and the only s/steel fitted was after the flexi pipe (supplied my own as original had blown and was told another £150 to make up a s/steel flexi pipe!)

I like the exhaust but not happy about the price and refusal to discount. Will most probably seek a different company for a s/steel system on my Delica.
