messageExhaust Pipe Sawn Off
Posted by Dark Knight June 22, 10:14PM

On Thursday night in SE Dulwich my friend's exhaust down pipe was neatly sawn off. The perp made off with a 3ft section of pipe including the flex joint. The catalytic converter was left hanging off.

Why?

Has this happened to anyone else nearby?

Rusted exhaust and too mean to buy one ?

Actually a quick google and it's the Cats they often take - maybe he's like the guy sawing off the branch he's sat on.

The vehicle was lifted up on a ramp today throwing some light on the matter. The 'thing' left hanging off was the mid-section silencer. The catalytic converter was embedded in the missing length of pipe.

So this was a straightforward theft. A nice little earner for the thief given current precious metals prices and a 500 repair bill for the owner.

500 for a new catalytic converter and exhaust? That's seems very expensive. It was much less when the cat and exhaust on my wife's C3 were replaced. The cat itself was just 80 for example. I go to a very good local independent garage.

Same neighbour, new car (black Prius), catalytic converter stolen from the Aylesham Centre's (i.e. Morrisons supermarket) car park yesterday afternoon or evening? Police report filed.

Did anyone see anything suspicious?

Someone gets their car vandalised and some users find it amusing and take the 'P'

Don't we just have some lovely people on here.

One would expect that you categorise yourself amongst the 'lovely people' on this forum

Better to have some light hearted humour than Daily Mail ranting I say. Theft for selling for scrap has always happened (no excuse of course). Lead of church roofs in my childhood. Controls on scrap yards may reduce some of the resale market.

You can hopefully get an indie to do it fairly cheap or even DIY.

For Prius's help is at hand : [www.ebay.co.uk]

I know Peckhamgatecrasher, and yes they are lovely.

Just because somebody makes a (clever and funny) joke doesn't mean they find vandalism amusing.

Hey, chill out guys. No one is looking for sympathy or a hot beverage.

It's ironic that the same driver was done twice in the space of a few months. That is amusing in and of itself.
