    will a golf mk4 1.8t cat back fit my 8l audi a3 1.8t?

    anyone know if they will fit?

    found this one on ebay:
    eBay - The UK's Online Marketplace

    or this one:
    Sportex VW Golf mk4 performance exhaust system 1.8T GTi 20v turbo 10/1997-2004 | eBay

    there seems to be nothing for audi a3's without spending like double the price :/
    i know they share the same floor pan, im happy to trim the rear plastic on the bumper which i will do anyway cause it looks alot better.

    i emailed that top one to ask if it will fit, he said no it will only fit the vehicle described, which tells me he wants to cover his own back which is fair enough.

    anyone know someone with a golf cat back fitted?

    cheers

    I feel your pain. Not too many options out there that don't cost a fortune. Anyway, I too have been looking at the first listing thinking the same thing! The only downside I've heard is the Golf is slightly longer, which is not a bad thing because you can always cut to fit. Will you be fitting it yourself?

    yeah ill be fitting it myself, im pritty sure there not actually longer and that they do share the same floor pan, so i think there just a bold on easy fit just like one made for the audi.
    just want some people to confirm this so i dont waste money haha

    Hi Marshall my exhaust system is a Scorpian cat back system from eBay and was from a mk4 golf gti for a bargain £90! But the system was longer not by much just a few inches mate but was a easy straight fit

    Ok cool cheers guys, just saw off a bit of the pipe if it's too long? Which part of the pipe?

    Also not sure about that top one because I don't want the tail pipes to be hanging so low :/ as they have been bent down
