    I've got a Milltek one and I'm happy with it. Cost me 490 (fitted) from Awesome GTi.

    I think someone started to formulate a plan towards a group buy, but it came to nothing. Worth chasing up as, in my opinion, they're a really good piece of kit.

    www.uk-performance.com TT Tuning-parts and services 01924 360260 are doing a group buy on the tt-forum. S3 system came out at about £389.87 inc

    Im sure if you just call them up and mention the tt-forum group buy they'd sort you one out

    389 doesn't seem a bad price and the company is based locally to me which is a bonus.
    I'll put a feeler out see whether I get much interest.

    Mazzy, not sure which part of the exhust is 'blowing' - would it be best to change the whole exhaust as one piece?

    You can do, i'd recommend changing the whole cat-back section. That way you aint got to worry about it ever.

    They build it without joins between the midsection & back so this eliminates the chance of leaks/blows. Unless ofcourse you request joins/clamps/flanges.

    Need anymore info??

    Is you S3 mapped??

    Hmmm, yeah was thinking I'd just change the whole lot over, saves hassle later on I suppose. Is it mapped? Well thats a long story mate, I have an ECU that has been remapped (the original that was in the car - long story!) and the ECU in the car currently is standard at 210 hp. I am thinking of putting the remapped ECU in to the car next week, as the car needs a new scuttle panel due to water leaking in to the current ECU.

    This is gonna sounds really sad but I'm after that loverly TVR rumble, can you recreate that? I'm looking at taking a day off after Christmas to pop up and get the exhaust sorted, it's only just started to blow so I figure I've got a couple of hundred miles left in the exhaust - it's still the same exhaust that was fitted at manufacture in year 200 which I figure is pretty good going!?

    Is the standard s3 exhaust a straight swap onto a a3 1.8TQ? obviously there would need to be a modification made to the rear exhaust.

    Long story - it's a custom map from someone I was recommended but ended up with the car off the road for four months......

    www.slipstream-deutsch.com is the dude and I don't even know if the ECU is actually chipped hence it's not in the car!
