You need to make sure that your insurance company is aware of any poor repairs, phone them straight away and tell them that the exhaust is not correct.

The crash may of caused damage other than what could of been seen, such as pushing the exhaust towards the front of the car, which may cause problems with the weld marks of the system. It will be difficult to prove that the exhaust didnt sound like it before the crash, but they may decide that due to the damage from the crash that maybe the exhaust has been affected.

i'd personally talk to your insurance and get them to agree to have powerflow look at it.
  none :(
just spoke to them they adv i need to see powerflow hopefully i can have a new system
is it worth having a full system on a 1.2
is it worth having a full system on a 1.2
better than just sticking a box on the back. at least it might have an edge over other standard 1.2's.

i'd leave the cash in a savings account to put towards a car with a bigger engine though!
