Default flex pipe exhaust part or part number?

Hi I have a failed flex pipe (the pipe is rotted inside the braided section) between the front pipe and the resonator. Is there an all stainless afiermarket replacement part or a part number for the OEM part? I took the car to a trusted small auto shop and they said they would only install the part from the dealer. (if the dealer even has or can get the part) I haven't gone to the muffler shop yet...
(I would really like to get an all stainless replacement.)
Thanks

See my post in this thread. Any exhaust shop should be able to weld in a new one for you.

I saw the post I am looking for other options. If there is a stainless part in the UK i will pay extra to get it.

Flex pipes are incorporated into nearly every car's exhaust system and made by a slew of companies. An exhaust shop should have absolutely no problem sourcing a correctly sized stainless unit for you; there is no need to import anything. Illustrating this, a search on Google Shopping for "2" stainless exhaust flex pipe" yields hundreds of results. Please note that I do not know if 2" is correct, I did not crawl under the car to measure, but it is likely to be close.

I should of checked that...had mine replaced and paid for it myself ( thought it was just another ' wear and tear ' item ) ...didn't know a flex pipe was covered for 7 years under warranty.

Oh well.
