  • 304 Stainless Exhaust Parts – Trusted By The Trade And The Public

    Let’s face it, there’s a lot of car exhaust suppliers out there – all of them after your custom. So why should you choose us, 304 Stainless Exhaust Parts, over the opposition? What differentiates us? Why should you make us your sole supplier?

    Quite simply, because so many other people already do. We have an enviable amount of experience – we’ve been in the business for years and years – which means we’ve built up a loyal base of customers who depend on us to deliver all their needs when it comes to car exhaust components. And we don’t discriminate when it comes to the type of customer either. We supply parts to both trade clients and to public customers; all of them satisfied with our efficient, dependable and quality service.

    Moreover, part of the reason why we boast so many clients is because we’re dedicated to supplying every possible exhaust component, all of them custom-built – from pipes to replacement catalytic converters – no order is too big or too small for us. We’re just as happysupplying you with that one, single exhaust part you need as we are with a combination of specific components or an entire exhaust system. Whatever works for you; whatever you need. That’s our business; that’s what we do.

    However, something else that differentiates us from the competition is that we only supply components made from stainless steel. Don’t get the wrong idea; this is definitely a strength. Owing to our years of experience and expertise, we know that stainless steel is by far and a way the best material for car exhaust parts; mild steel is a poor second, which is why we have nothing to do with it.

    But why is this? There are a few reasons. The first comes down to the strength and lifetime of stainless steel components. Mild steel parts are made of steel, we won’t deny that, but obviously this steel is ‘mild’, plus it’s usually coated (or rather ‘topped up’) with aluminium or zinc. This may sound all very well, but stainless steel parts are manufactured from absolute steel throughout (with no additional lesser metals), which means they’re naturally stronger and more durable.

    Furthermore, they also contain nickel and chrome – it’s this that gives them that elegant and distinguished and, in fact, all important chrome polished look on the outside. All important? Yes, because this chrome finish keeps rust away from the exhaust, without this it would startcorroding as soon it receives a tiny scratch – as is the case with the mild steel alternative. For this reason there’s a huge disparity between the lifetimes of mild steel and stainless steel exhausts; the former often needs to be replaced after just three years, the latter may not need to be replaced at all – in fact, it’s likely to outlive the car to which it’s been fitted.

    You may have guessed the other reason why we only supply stainless steel parts by now. Ultimately, they cost you – the customer – less. They’re a better deal for you. Because you have to replace them far less often – if at all – compared to the mild steel alternatives, which may be cheaper at face value, but in the long-term inevitably work out to be more expensive.

    So, the message is simple: at 304 Stainless Exhaust Parts, we’re committed to supplying you with whatever exhaust components you require, custom-built – strong, long-lasting and value-for-money exhausts.

  • Quality, performance and longevity – our guiding principles

    Quality, performance and longevity – the three principles we believe in when it comes to supplying exhaust systems and the three fundamental reasons why we only sell stainless steel components to our many and diverse clients.

    It’s only with stainless steel exhaust pipes and parts that you can be assured of quality, performance and longevity – unlike with the mild steel alternatives. That’s because components built from mild steel usually tend to last for about three years, at which point – unfortunately for the owner who’s put their faith in them –they succumb to rust and corrosion from outside elements (acting on their exterior) and gases from the engine (acting on their interior).

    With stainless steel parts customers rarely experience this because, due to the material they’re made from, they tend to be more durable and longer-lasting – indeed, it’s far from uncommon for stainless steel exhaust parts to exceed the lifetime of the vehicles to which they’re fitted.

    Looking at it another way, these components save you money compared to mild steel ones, as you won’t need to replace them anything like as often – if at all. Plus, if fitted well, a stainless steel system should ensure free-flow of the fumes from the engine, meaning the waste will be efficiently removed from the vehicle, easing the burden on the engine and so saving on fuel use – and, ultimately then, on fuel costs.

    Quality, performance and longevity from stainless steel exhausts–that’s why we sell exhaust systems, combinations of components or that one part a customer needs. We sell them to order online and through our trusted dealers. And we don’t mean to boast when we say it (because it’s true): we’re always confident we can deliver exactly what you require owing to the years in the business we’ve clocked up. We have a great deal of experience providing the best stainless steel exhaust components to our many very satisfied clients – both trade and public customers.

    And when we say we supply the best, we also mean in that all-important department – the sound of your exhaust.Don’t worry; just like mild steel versions, stainless exhausts deliver that deep, satisfying, sonorous noise you’re doubtless after. We know that’s high on the list of priorities when it comes to exhaust components – or an entire system – when you’re looking to buy, so it’s just as high on our list of deliverables.

    In short then, thanks to our guiding principles – quality, performance and longevity – we’re sure you’ll be more than satisfied in doing business with us; 304 Stainless Exhaust Parts UK, the only company you’ll ever need for your stainless steel exhaust needs.

  • Why stainless steel exhausts save you money

    Are you tempted to buy stainless steel exhaust parts, but put off because of the price? Don’t be – they save you money.

    Granted, at face value, mild steel exhaust components are usually cheaper; but it’s easy to overlook just how much they’ll cost in the long run. When you consider that stainless steel parts are more durable and last longer, it quickly becomes obvious simply they’re the cheaper – and all round – better exhaust option.

    In fact, stainless steel components last so long that often they outlast the lifetime of the car to which they’re fitted. But why is this? What is it about stainless steel that makes it such a good material for exhausts? Why should you fork out good money on it?
    Mild steel parts are obviously made of steel, just like their stainless counterparts, but they’re simply not as strong. Unlike stainless components, which are made of absolute steel, their mild steel rivals are coated (or ‘topped up’) with the less durable aluminium or zinc.

    By contrast, stainless steel exhausts contain nickel and chrome which means – unlike mild steel parts – they don’t start to rust as soon as they come into contact with the air’s elements. Without a great-looking, polished chrome finish, mild steel parts begin to corrode immediately they’re scratched – so the writing’s on the wall from that point on. If you want exhaust parts that aren't the strongest on the market, rust quickly and will only last up to three years, then buy mild steel – otherwise, it’s best to stick with stainless steel.

    If these reasons for buying stainless steel parts weren't enough, there’s another big reason why you should – and it’s another one that ensure stainless steel exhausts save money. As a well-made, well-fitted stainless exhaust will be free-flowing, it should rid the engine of waste faster and more effectively than a manufacturer’s original exhaust. This means the engine won’t have to work as hard and so use less fuel. Yes, a stainless steel exhaust ensures you pay less at the pump!

    And there’s no doubt about it, every exhaust component you’ll need is available in stainless steel. Indeed, at 304 Stainless Exhaust Parts UK, we pride ourselves on being able to supply any and every exhaust component, custom-built, for both our trade and public clients. We have years of experience in the business and so a multitude of satisfied clients who can attest to our quality service – whether they've bought from us a whole stainless steel exhaust system, a combination of components or just that one part they need.

    So get in touch with us – we’re the perfect partner for all your great-looking, long-lasting and value-for-money stainless steel exhaust parts.

  • Why choose 304 Stainless Exhaust Parts UK?

    If you’re looking for components or an entire stainless steel exhaust system, then you’ve come to the right place. At 304 Stainless Exhaust Parts UK, we’re all about supplying exactly the component – or combination of components – you need for your system.

    We sell our products to order online and through our trusted dealers and can be confident we’ll deliver exactly what you require because we have many years’ experience of providing excellent stainless steel exhaust components and so have many satisfied clients – both trade and public customers – to attest to our quality service.

    For us, exhaust components and systems are fundamentally about three things: quality, performance and longevity. That’s why the products we sell are from stainless steel material rather than mild steel. Components built from the latter tend to last for about three years at most, at which time they will have succumbed to rust and corrosion due to the outside elements and the gases from the engine.

    By contrast, stainless steel components simply don’t rust or corrode. This means they last a great deal longer – quite possibly longer than the entire life of the vehicle to which they’re fitted. Stainless steel exhausts then are durable and long-lasting. Additionally, because stainless doesn't rust, exhausts built from it have an attractive polished finish as opposed to the dull and – inevitably – rusty finish of a mild steel exhaust. Aesthetically speaking then, it’s a win-win.

    And stainless exhausts sound just as good as mild exhausts too. Indeed, because we have a reputation for delivering precisely what our customers require, we take great care in making sure the component – or system – you receive will deliver that deep, quality sound you’re looking for.

    There’s also a matter of efficiency and cost-effectiveness here.Not only does buying stainless steel parts from us mean you won’t need to replace them as you would those built from corrosive mild steel, but as a free-flowing stainless steel exhaust is likely to rid gas from a vehicle more efficiently than the manufacturer’s original exhaust, the engine has to work less and use less fuel. Over time then, the savings you’ll accrue could make a real difference to your car’s overall running costs.

    So, with our years of knowledge and expertise, enormous variety of products and capacity to supply exactly the components or system you want, we’re sure that you've found the perfect partner in us –304 Stainless Exhaust Parts UKfor stainless steel exhausts.

  • What are the benefits of a stainless steel exhaust?

    Put simply, the benefits of a stainless steel exhaust are quality, performance and longevity.

    It’s better to buy stainless steel exhaust components, unlike mild steel components, because they won’t rust or corrode when they’re scratched or scarred. Conversely, the assault of wet British weather and salt will eventually rust the alternative or zinc-coated mild steel exhaust systems. Moreover,in time, gases emitted from the engine will corrode these standard steel exhausts. But, owing to their durability, this simply isn't the case with stainless steel components – they cope far better with years of use and the conditions their exhaust systems have to face.

    Nowadays, practically every exhaust component is built in stainless steel as well as the mild steel alternative. Indeed, with our commitment to supplying any and every exhaust component for both trade and public clients, at 304 Stainless Exhaust Parts UK we pride ourselves on providing exactly the custom-built component – or combination of components – you need. We have years of experience and many satisfied clients to attest to our quality service.

    And don’t doubt it, if you want efficiency and value for money, then our stainless steel products are what you need. Due to its durability, once the right stainless steel system has been fitted you’ll find it’s far less likely you’ll have to replace your car’s pipes and other components – if at all – unlike if you've chosen to have a mild steel system put in. Ultimately then, stainless steel is the cost-effective choice.

    The quality, performance and longevity – the benefits of a stainless steel exhaust – are, of course, down to the composition of the material itself. Unlike mild steel pipes that often consist of coated aluminium or zinc over steel tubing, stainless steel pipes are made of absolute steel with a proportion of nickel and chrome to ensure they’re resistant to rust and corrosion. With mild steel pipes, the aluminium will protect the steel only until it’s scratched, after which moisture and dirt will inevitably get into the metal and result in worsening corrosion. Stainless pipes simply last longer; tube-painting or re coating isn't necessary.

    Admittedly, from an aesthetic point of view, stainless steel pipes will naturally discolour over time, which is naturally due to heat. But this isn't necessarily due to a lack of quality –indeed, the pipes’ chromium shine can be brought back merely with some stainless steel polish and a soft cloth.

    And, in terms of sound; don’t worry. Our stainless steel components will provide just the sound you want your exhaust to deliver. Plus, as 304 Stainless Exhaust Parts UK is dedicated to supply the precise parts you need, we specifically work to find the components that give that deep, quality sound you’re after. Our parts look great, sound great and, owing to their stainless steel material, ensure smoother, easier flow through the system.
