    Which downpipe?

    With so many downpipe and exhaust systems available for the s3 I was wondering what the best combo is?
    I have my heart set on a milltek cat back non res, the question is which downpipe?
    Wanting to keep a cat, so I believe these are the available options.

    Pipewerx
    Xs power
    Blueflame
    Magnex

    Which do people go for? And will they marry up with the milltek cat back?

    Cheers in advance

    All 3" downpipes should marry up fine. I'm running an XS Power DP and it's been great since I got it fitted in June but I have a de cat and also standard cat back so I can't really comment there.

    Personally I would try to get it all done together so that you're only paying one fitting cost to the exhaust place.
