Rear Silencer Compatibility X300-XJ40?

Postby Aidan » Sat Jul 01, 2017 4:17 pm

I just had a brainwave since I saw two used rear silencers for an X300 on offer; are these adaptable to fit an XJ40? Looking under my 300 and my 40 I can see they are different to a degree where they are suspended from the body of the car but I don't know if it's impossible to adapt the 300's one to fit a 40 as visibility isn't too good without jacking the cars up.
Has anyone tried this succesfully before? JCP is selling what looks like a s/steel X300 LHR silencer for a very reasonable price, while the XJ40 items have been NLA since before Moses came down from the mountain :(
Am I being foolishly optimistic and naive...?

Unrealistic i think is the word , they're quite different if you co,pare them , these are r/h but you can see just how incompatible they are ,

here's one of mine in mild steel , the other is in this link

I have not checked, but I would expect they will be different enough to be not worth the faff.

Thanks chaps,

I think you're right on this, as usual. Guess I'll get a new one.
