  6. Choosing a stainless exhaust (and 101 other small issues!)

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    MOT time of year again - I think the only thing it might fail on is the exhaust - when it stops raining I'll get under and check it all out, but I don't *think* it's blowing, yet. Decided to replace it with a stainless one anyway (before, or soon after the MOT...) So - We don't want a "sports"...
