    Good evening, I fear for the worst, my car has developed white smoke coming out of the exhaust recently, even with a hot engine. I feared the dreaded head gasket failure but there is no gunk on the oil filler cap or the dipstick and I am not seeing the coolant level going down. Any ideas? Is...

    Just upgraded my exhaust system to a Powerflow stainless steel system back to the cat. Had it fitted at RSR Croydon for £220 who provided a good no nonsense service.
