Hi folks,

I got a place for a month in Sydney last night and it's got the most moronic underground garage in the f*cking world!!!! Anyway, I can manouver around it without hitting anything (I hope!) but on teh entry, I am scraping the bottom a bit around the driver's seat area. I am going in at the tightest angle I can to reduce scrape, but I think it'll be a problem... I am there fro 4 weeks. Do you think it's going to f*ck my car up?

Iggy:

It will most likely to be the Y pipe flex that you are scrapping... and IF you are not lucky, after a month of doing so, your flex will most likely be damaged. I had my flex nearly damaged and if I get it scrapped one more time, I think the exhaust will leak at the flex section at the driver side too.

best of luck!

cheers,

richie

Sydney downtown... parking on street (if you can find it!) ... not good idea :)

I agree with Ritchie. Its probably the flex pipe. I scrapped one of mine, but the concertina section inside the metal braid flex component is ok.

BTW, I have 12mm thick steel checka plates between my driveway and the road to flatten the approach, otherwise I would not be able to garage my car.

Can you find another place for the time you spend in Sydney. Rubbing the flex a minimum of 2 times per day for a period of 1 month will surely wear through the flex joint and concertina = exhaust leak!

Yeah I decided it was a smarter idea to find alternative parking, so I am now parking on the street right in front of the police HQ, which has 50 cameras around, so I think it'll be fairly safethere :)
