There is a seller on ebay that has these from time to time. She advertises straight and deflector types for the minor and 2CV (but they are the same item). I got mine for 5.99 plus the postage.

since she seems to put another up after a few weeks don't go mad on your bidding. It is good solid item, well worth its money, does not look like she has any right now, but try the odd search for exhaust trim in a week or so perhaps?

Those ones on ebay are top quality. produced many years ago in the uk, with real good chrome. ive had some on my minors for a couple of years now. no pitting. good ones.

Nice (chromed) tip, but why do you want to advertise a pea-shooter exhaust? :lol:

I had an angled one on mine a few years ago, but I recall it flying off and watching it bouncing down the road in my mirror. Fortunately, no-one was following at the time :o

The decent thick ones with a rolled end, wrapped in clingfilm, are under 4 quid at my local car shop. They fit with one screw.
Mine fell off and was run over by another car - and its still round! I just pulled over in a bus stop and ran back and fetched it. :lol:
