ok so the arms will cost around £100 per side to replace for parts and labour plus a tracking after so total around £250 plus vat to rectify the bushes being wor and this would straighten up the steering also. The front exhaust Flexi pipe is part of the catalyst so this is where it gets expensive a pattern part from an aftermarket supplier would run around £600 but the genuine part is £1400 from VW so this would be a very expensive repair
