    Gutted for you mate - its right what they say about bad luck coming in three's. A3's in your case!!

    On a side note I'd see whats the cheapest option. Maybe try and source a second hand one. in fact I've got a Mk4 TDI 150 downpipe and cat (sut catcher) - you can have it cheap if it will fit. It was off a 2004 car that had done around 30,000 miles.

    From memory it was ARL - I dunno mate, you'll have to do some homework I would have thought. A trip over to UKMKIVS.NET might be required. If it doesn't fit you could always buy a PD150 turbo!
