No clamps at all?  The clamp between mid and back was a Milltek specific one, you could use a Mikalor style one from ebay but will need to measure the size...no-one knew the size when I was asking so I just left it blowing lol.

I'm not sure what clamp they use for the cat on these though.

Need to measure the diameter of the pipe, so right across the end that you want to connect is easiest.  I think it's about 2.5 inch.

If the old one is standard it will need cutting to remove yeah.  They fitted the exhaust before fitting the rear axle in the factory.

Yeah it should be a straight fit, especially as it's already been on another car.  Some exhaust sealant/paste might be useful around the joints and remember you'll have to swap the lambda sensor over as well.  Apart from that it's literally as simple as hanging it on the rubbers and tightening the clamps.
