    Arrow Looking at a new back box...

    ... for my 1999 1.6 Audi A3...

    Firstly, my A3 has got a standard backbox on it (with the downward twin exit) but seems really noisy - blowing etc. But when I cover the tail pipes you cant hear it blowing anywhere down the exhaust or out the box?

    Anyone know whats going on with it?

    So anyways, Im looking at getting a new one to try and sort this and looking at something like the S3 has...

    Found some guy selling a Scorpion Back Box off a rover 215gsi... dimensions are as follows...

    the box:
    14in long
    5in high
    11in wide

    tail pipes: 7 in long

    pipe:
    18in long
    2 1/4in wide

    Anyone know if this will fit mine???

    I can post pics if needed...

    not sure if this will fit. You really need to get under the car and check yourself. Can't say from pics imo
    ^^ In my opinion

    Just get one for a VW MK4 golf. You will need to trim your rear valance to make it look like the S3

    Wouldnt bother with any of that personally.

    Why dont you get a custom job done? Will only cost about 100-150 You can choose exactly what tailpipe where it sits and how loud/quiet you want it.

    At least you'll get exactly what you want...
