      Riding the bike didn't work. The bike was so small it might as well had training wheels. I made it half way down my street and said fck no. I drove to the shop, paid my buddy and grabbed my keys. I'll get it tonight when my buddy gets off work.

      Exhaust completely broke off at the down pipe. The heat from the exhaust gases set the firewall on fire.

      there was a video, it starts to burn slowly and they dont have anything to stop it with so they just sit there and watch the car burn down.

      As you've found out, car firewalls (or any for that matter), are not impervious to fire/extreme heat. They just slow things down relative to fire/heat entering the passenger compartment. What you had happen to you was the rough equivalent to a blowtorch held against the material. Doesn't take long to fail.

      At least you weren't hurt, except in the pocketbook.

      Better luck soon...makes me feel like a king with the typical Christmas tree of CELs in most VW's.

      Yeah that makes sense. I figured it's breaking point would have been higher.

      I gotta rip out the material tomorrow. I'm gonna see if I can light it with a regular lighter.
