    Exhaust Help!!!!

    The cat has died on my standard exhaust and i am looking to replace it cat back can anyone recommend a system that sounds sweet on the 1.8 T engine?? My other worry was buying an aftermarket exhaust and having to cut the rear bumber as i have no cut-out at present - is this a problem?? does it need to be cut??

    I would like a sweet sounding exhaust i don't want something that resmebles a bazooka and shakes glass out of windows!!!


    Cheers guys

    Hi,
    Speak to Milltek, tell them Rich @ JBR Performance told you to give them a call. They have recently done a new exhaust for the A3 1.8T which sits under the bumper. They designed it on my car so i know it exists [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    see www.richbroadfield.f2s.com for some pics.

    This can be used with a sports cat also from milltek which should free things up a little, and will csot about 750 for the lot. The system alon will be around 270+vat.

    I'll go with Rich on the Miltek front, as all of the examples I've heard, the last being on an R32 sounded really sweet and in keeping with the understated Audi/VW styling (OK maybe not so applicable to the R32...).

    However I don't like the exhaust sticking out under the bumper, but that's just my own preference.

    You say the CAT has died, but you're looking for a CAT back system [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] Which doesn't help you dead CAT fella, just replaces the pipes after the CAT..... So you'll either need a full system or a new downpipe including CAT from Audi/OEM parts supplier....me thinks.

    And for me I'd just chuck the CAT [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/lol.gif[/img]
