    Is yours quattro? If not the eBay downpipes are perfect. Pretty much every with a a3 has one ans for the pri e you can't complain. Had mine 2 years now and no problems. Do it
    Word!!!

    I fitted it at the same time as the exhaust. It sounds Deeper/ throatier. I would say there gains as it less restrictive now.

    You will notice the different first time you drive it. The torque is pretty much instant. You love it. Get a cat back fitted at the same time for the sound too

    If you already have a back box and plan on getting a downpipe, then all you need is the centre section straight pipe? Either a miltek one or I think you can use the one from the diesel 8L.

    I don't understand how you get reducers to fit? I bought mine and still haven't fitted my decat/dp but bought a reducer 3" to 2.25" and a TDi centre section and the reducer looks like it will rattle - it does fit but not snug, or do the bolts nip it up and fuse it together?
