Do Not Sell My Personal Information Jump to content


Recommended Posts

Hi guys

Well Lexus main stealer has quoted me £1000 fitted for just the exhaust tail pipe (back box) on my 2006 IS250. Must admit I'm astonished at this price given its just the back box. Am I being ripped off? What would you all advise surely I can get a full SS performance system fitted somewhere for less than that price?

I'm at a loss what to do so anyone with similar experience or who could offer help/ advice would be most appreciated. It was Lexus Leicester by the way.

Thanks in advance.

Do you still have an IS250 SE-L? When you say 'just the exhaust tail pipe (back box)' I thought perhaps you were talking about a 220D. The 250 SE-L obviously has two back boxes and tailpipes coupled with a 'Y' piece to a flange which bolts to the single pipe coming from the manifold, so it's one unit.

I fitted a 304 stainless steel Tanabe system on my SE-L less than a year after buying the car new. At the time I imported it from Japan for just over £500.00, but that was in 2006. Guess the value of the Yen has gone up since then so probably more expensive, plus the additional VAT and then add the fitting cost. Here's a pic of the Tanabe system for the IS250, the standard system is of similar configuration but without the additional flange connection that enable the Tanabe to be split for shipping.

I do have the original system for my IS250 SE-L stored in my garage if you need a straight replacement, so pm me if you need to discuss before I put it on eBay.

I've seen a single muffler going for £800 plus, and a two piece system for around £1600. Fitting on top of that.

Best option is to call around as replacing a back box by a non-Lexus, but competent workshop, shouldn't go against you when you sell on.
