Default Fiat Uno - Need help for Exhaust

I have a Fiat Uno where the exhaust pipe has various points of exhaust now. I went up and down a few garages dragging her noisily but all efforts went in vain as there are no parts available. Can someone help me with suggesting options to get this problem rectified or alternatives. Some some suggested me to use a free flow exhaust. I really dont know if it makes sense.

Simple solution : An after-market custom exhaust . And free-flows don't necessarily have to be loud (all depends on the muffler). You can get one built just as quiet as stock.

I concur.
You don't need original parts for the exhaust.

Use a muffler from any other car that is approx 1000cc engine and get the piping fabricated to fit your car. That way you wil have the quiet sound too.

Thanks a tonne for the ideas. I did speak to my local mechanic on the fabrication part which seems quiet possible but he says the mileage could be affected because of this. The car gives me just 9 kmpl in city. I do not use it for highways anyways. Happy with my Elantra for highways - She rules
