Starla Exhaust Advice & Reviews

I’ve assembled a handful of owner comments about Starla exhausts… notes and observations about Starla purchases by Volvo owners and MVS users like you. See what the Volvo Repair Database has for Volvo replacement exhausts.

Generally, you have a fair number of choices for things like piping: Walker, Bosal, Starla, DEC, Ansa, AP, and Volvo OEM itself. Which of these is the same product branded differently is anyone’s guess at this point, given the global economy we live in.

Among the different pieces of exhaust:

  • Replacement Exhaust Kits
  • Exhaust Manifolds
  • Catalytic Converters & Emissions
  • Mufflers & Resonators
  • Exhaust Pipes
  • Exhaust Tips

… prices and quality vary widely, so spend a minute on the Internet and you can find a deal at the quality level you’re willing to pay for.

Please buy from a Matthews Volvo Site Sponsor if you can. It helps keep MVS on the Web, firing on all (five) cylinders.

Example muffler prices taken from a topic discussing Volvo 850 muffler fix:

  • Walker $200
  • Bosal $190
  • Starla $225,
  • Volvo $300
