    AUDI A3 1996-2003 1.6 1.8 1.8t 20v TURBO 1.9 TDI STAINLESS STEEL EXHAUST SYSTEM | eBayomething like that would do you

    if your only bothered about making the back end noisy you only need back box/muffler/silencer or whatever you want to call it so this kit is probably more expensive than you need

    Read the stickies above the section for info,an s3 gets returns on an exhaust upgrade which are minuscule so yours will be even tinier.

    just get a custom backbox. you won't get any gains and it won't be any faster. just the sound really

    would have to agree, a nice set of wheels and a set of coilovers (like the ones i have for sale!) would do far m ore for this car than a chavvy exhaust

    mmm getting alot of criticism about how chavvy my car is? i dont want it to sound like a helicopter, just a nice sporty note on tickover and a little little roar when i put my foot down. i havent just brought a nova or fiesta and read a copy of maxpower and stucj some neons and a chrome gear nob. And as for the r32 wheels i like them.
