05 Mar Vauxhall Agila full exhaust replacement
A Luton customer in their Vauxhall Agila came to us at WV Autos Ltd, Luton with a badly blown exhaust in need of urgent replacement.
Your vehicle’s exhaust is no longer a simple pipe system designed to channel fumes away from the engine using a silencer to reduce noise. On the majority of modern cars exhausts are emission control systems using technology to reduce your car’s impact on the environment. A modern exhaust system filters away used gases, boosts engine performance and improves fuel consumption. Often the first indication that there is a problem with your exhaust is a noise developing; such as a rattle, hiss, roar or a chugging noise. Knocks and bumps from speed humps and high curbs can damage the exhaust causing physical damage and is a very common reason for an exhaust part needing to be replaced.
Common signs to look out for include:
• Knocking or rattling noises from an exhaust part becoming loose
• Part of the exhaust becoming low or dragging on the road
• Your exhaust sounding louder
• Visible holes or excessive corrosion
• An increase in smoke coming from the exhaust
Here at WV Autos Ltd, Luton we can source full and part exhausts and even catalytic converters at competitive prices in order to get your vehicle back on the road safely and efficiently. We are also authorised dealers for Milltek Sport and Scorpion performance exhausts. An aftermarket performance exhaust can free some of the power in your engine, allowing for a quicker, more efficient path for exhaust gases to escape. This means your engine “breathes” better, so spent fuel and air exit the combustion chambers faster. That means more fuel and air can be burned to create more power.
There are several other good reasons to add an aftermarket exhaust system. One of the most noticeable is the subtle, but distinctly aggressive, change in exhaust note. Many of the better systems are only slightly louder than your stock exhaust at idle, but they deepen to a low “growl” during acceleration.
If you have an issue with your exhaust or you are interested in upgrading to an aftermarket performance exhaust, get in touch with us today at WV Autos Ltd, Luton on 01582 968995.
