I wrote a couple of days ago about loud (but uncool) exhaust from my 2001 230K. I was suspecting the cat, but it turns out it's a cracked exhaust manifold. Isn't it a bit strange for an exhaust manifold to fail after 67k miles?

Its deff. a first to me...... you have not mentioned where you live, but dependy on how much salt accumulates on the metal parts on your car can affect it, but it is wierd..... is your car under a warranty of any sort?

Thanks for the reply. I live in Virginia, on the east coast of the US.
No more warranty... dealer's quoted $1k for parts and labor. Not too bad (not good either).

If you want a used one, e-mail Steve Johnson. I installed the Superspring header for me so he might still have the factory one. It actually not hard to remove and install. For some pictures, check out my pictures "galleries".

Check your manual. At some point they extended the emissions warranty to comply with federal law.
