There’s a scandal out there that no-one realised. Yep, you guessed it we’re talking exhausts here. Dirty exhausts. Emission testers Emission Test Facility UK, based in Longbridge, West Mids. tested scores of aftermarket exhaust systems against manufacturer’s own with some shocking results. Some emitted up to 20 times the level of nitrogen dioxide and twice as many hydrocarbons. One well known brand’s £300 catalyst (used to clean up the emissions) had absolutely zero affect on the exhaust gases. Their tester’s UK director said that problems were found with the design, materials used and quality of construction. Following EU condemnation of UK air quality and an enforcement action being taken over the air quality of London, director Tim Colgan called for the UK to bring in law changes to bring us up to European standards. Would you pay more for an original exhaust to be fitted rather than the cheaper alternative that may not be so good for the environment?    By Graham Hill
