    1.8T downpipe and decat

    DOWNPIPE DECAT 3" AUDI A3 MK1 1.8T TURBO on eBay (end time 19-Mar-11 21:19:25 GMT)

    Hmmm, i wouldnt trust it to be honest,

    For an extra 60quid ie rather just get a milltek on personally, ull get lifetime warrenty aswell

    I have heard de-cats can throw up error codes on the later a3's though because of the pre&post lamba sensors

    okay thats what I thought. I'll save the extra money and go for miltek. Is there noticable difference when fitting the 3" down pipe?
    Thanks for the advice Jordan

    Or you have this option...

    May be 2.5 but on Audizine for instance on the A4`s a lot of people prefer the 2.5" decats for some reason.

    I know of a few people with jperformance stuff and never had troubles before people question the quality and stuff.
