PostSubject: Longlife stainless steel exhaust   Sun May 16, 2010 8:12 am

Hi, yesterday had a stainless steel exhaust fitted as 2 year old exhaust was exhausted! Longlife fitted it, I think they are a national organisation - sounds lovely and quiet again now, and looks great,but I still miss the air-cooled sound.

Any chance of an under engine photo so we can see how they've installed your exhaust?

Hi-Watch for any back pressure changes when using non genuine parts as this could affect the engine performance etc....

Hi suefjones

How are you getting on with your Longlife exhaust?
Our exhaust is on its way out and I'm looking at replacing it with a stainless steel one.
What sort of price did you pay?

Thanks

Julian

We are also looking at replacing some of our exhaust as it has officially gone, not bad as its only 11 months old Sad . We will be using longlife, initally just the bit thats gone, and slowly add on to it, to replace all of it over time.

I had a long life exhaust fitted a few years ago, cost me £299, all the pipes to the CAT, the guy ask me how I wanted it to sound, so I said like a air cooled porche! still, to me it sounds like a VW bus, and runs well. They have the ability to make the exhaust sound as quiet or as load as you like.

Also for Pics, see Bobs post under aircooled section

Given that Longlife appears to be popular on this site, perhaps the good Tim could negotiate some club discount for us?

I've just seen the spot in November's Camper & Bus about VW Downunder's custom stainless steel exhaust for an AquaBay. Over a grand including the cat. Is there anyone out there prepared to pay that level of cash for such an item?

My rear box has gone, but downunders price for s/steel is way off...

Had dealings with the guy before i bought peppa, nice enough but as far as he was concerned his buses were the best you could get, and everyone else's brazibays were crap....! i guess thats business though.... Rolling Eyes

Peppa, You are correct however, their Busses are the best you can get apart from the cost, but you need to look at them and compare rather than just talk about them over the phone, I can confrim that as I have seen all of them however, Pauls cost for a stainless is way over the top. Wink

Hey olive...

Think the finish of the relic and tourer models are ok, but as you said his prices are way off, if i had to replace peppa ( god forbid) i would still choose danbury, just buy the people carrier or van and do it my way...

Its all personal choice at the end of the day, but disagree on your thoughts on VW Downunder costs against Danbury. In my calculations VW Downunder come in for less and their quality is streets ahead.

I tried to buy a people carrier off Danbury but Jason flatly refused and I was forced into buying an Amigo, ripped it out and did my own thing which is what we wanted to do in the first place so for me, my Danbury experience was very poor.

Hey olive, it's horses for courses, paul mullinger wanted to sell me a two year old lhd, tin top bus, relic interior, no alloys or real extra's with about 25000km on the clock for just over £27,000...

peppa cost £23,000 with all her goodie's and 22,000 km, plus i seem to be the lucky one maybe as not experienced any of the probs other danbury owners have....To me it was a no brainer, i do like the westy top downunder do, but o'connor's do them cheaper...

Going a bit off topic here folks. Please keep this to discussion of the exhausts. The Danbury v Downunder topic is found here:

downunder - danbury or downunder - that is the question!

I know that stainless exhausts (if good quality) do cost a lot to manufacture so its a personal choice of having the standard steel or paying that extra amount and having a longer lasting stainless system. If anyone needs help just ask....
