So it started sounding really cool.... then...

Car has been fantastic since last service.
But have been doing a fair bit of gravel road stuff lately. Byron Shire roads are bad but their dirt roads are worse. Not so much corrugations but rather millions of potholes that produce the same effect. But the faster you go the smoother the ride right? Anyway I digress.
At some point the exhaust note changed and it started to sound like a really cool rally car...
Thought.hmmm better get that checked out... thinking I had probably put a small hole in the exhaust..
4 days later and it sounds like a race car with straight exhaust...
What gives? Seems two bolts apparently..
Seems the bolts at the front of the first section behind the gearbox had come loose. The cool sound was the little space opening up.
The big bad racer sound was the exhaust pieces separated. Bolts gooone.
No damage... 2 new bolts and back to what it was a week ago...
