    How long, labour cost to fit 3" dp and decat

    How long would it take for a decent garage with ramp access to fit 3" downpipe and decat to my s3???? Rough guide anyone?

    Pipeworx charged ~£200 to fit mine, together with a non-res miltek system and backbox.

    My friends dad did it in 2 hours with no past experience on s3 , he is a mechanic with a ramp. But I was still impressed by that, I think 2-3 hours is fair and going rate especially if there are seized bits to fight with!

    Mines not an S3 just an A3 1.8T and my local garage fitted a full cat back (3" downpipe, decat and 2.5" system) swapped the front sensor, took the old exhaust apart a cleaned it and bagged it up for me. 1 hour labour £50 +VAT

    Is the dog bone engine mount easy to do when changing the dp and cats? Got a poly bushed one in considering fitting at the same time as my relentless bits.

    yup, 2x 16mm bolts into the bottom of the gearbox and 2x 13mm bolts into the front of the subframe, should take about 2 minutes
