I'm after a 3" v band joint to finish my new exhaust.

There are plenty of them on eBay but I don't want to buy crap that doesnt fit together properly, seal properly, warp or corrode.

Anybody have a recommendation for a good source of quality v band flanges and clamps in the UK?

Thanks
Dan

I've used various eBay ones before, all totally fine, weld nicely and haven't warped or corroded on me. Make sure you get male/female interlocking flanges, the flat face ones are dog toffee.

If you want to spend more then look at vibrant performance, I think H-tune are a uk dealer

Thanks all, can't see anything listed on Owen developments or h tune sites though. Heard good things about vibrant around the internet.

Of the UK ones I've found this site looks good if you can believe the advert. Male female flange, sleeves over the pipe etc.

I just have trust issues with eBay supplied parts at the moment so many times I've relied on them and ended up wasting weeks of precious time reworking crap parts or having to find replacements. Even with Mamba, had to significantly rework some of their products that clearly had never been tested on a vehicle before being made produced!

Anyway rant over, will have a go and see what I get

Cheers
Dan

They look identical to the ones I used off eBay @ about 17 each..

I think the bottom line with stuff like that is that you either spent top money on branded made in the USA stuff, or buy the Chinese alternative, either from eBay, or someone else who imports them in bulk and re-sells on their website
