    if its got to be changed get a 3" aftermarket one with a sports cat as they cost under £300 for both and its a good upgrade.

    Fitting is where it gets complicated though so check on prices for this

    Mine is a relentless downpipe and sports cat I got it through Sam Bryant who is a member on here as he can arrange for it to be posted over from China.

    Was less than £300 for both inc PnP and a little import tax

    So maybe drop Sam a PM and see what the score is on getting them from him

    Basically looks very similar to this one on ebay Downpipe Audi S3 TT Seat Leon 1.8T 210hp & 224HP / Turbocharger Turbo exhaust | eBay

    Is there any difference in a BAM or a APY down pipe or are they all the same fittings?

    Will do, although it takes me ages to get round to car stuff, so it may be a while!

    It won't go through an MOT, you need a friendly MOT tester. I bought the 200 cell sports cat version though.

    APY shouldn't throw a code with a decat as it only has a single pre cat O2 probe.
