    PIPEWERX S3

    Morning people, i had my exhaust done yesterday, cat back at PIPEWERX, didn't go for the downpipe and cats just yet but i think i will be doing very soon!
    Have a look at the pics, the job is spot on, done by Ian Birch


    On arrival, dull and overcast


    Ready to go


    Middle section made and put on


    Back section made






    DONE! Nice and sunny

    Overall the job is excellent, and as for the noise, there is absolutly no drooning in the car at any speed and from the lights between 1000-3000rpm it sounds awesome, a deep rumble

    The guy can weld for sure. The silver MK1 golf in the background looks interesting.

    They've done a great job on that, very nice indeed.

    Was it expensive?, I'm looking at getting someone to make me a catback system for my A3.

    it looks excellent.

    I like the look of the single pipe, but i get accused of being a chav by my son. Good write up and excellent pics. We need to know how much though!

    It looks very nice, but I don't think it sounds that different to standard.

    If you want a sportier note, I would go for the Supersprint street system. They do away with the centre silencer, so you get a much deeper note.

    no matter what my sons says, I really like the look of a single oval. I have a bit of a problem with the standard dual pipes of the S3, mainly due to the fact its a single pipe with a dual end to look good....the dual pipe is just for show.

    I am definitely leaning towards that single oval...I can be the oldest chav in town.

    my freind had his done there a few years back it lasted around 6 months before the baffles broke up in the rear box and they wouldnt refund him all they would do is replace it which meant he had to travel up there again to have a new one made up, also the pipe work had surface corrosion nothing major but a sign of poor quality materials, they may have got better since then but id never go there after his story

    Oh yeah....there was something else.....Tim and Jase....

    The original S3 exhaust is not a single pipe. It's got twin pipes from the rear backbox.

    As for single pipe going into a dual. How's that really so different from a 3" pipe turning into a 6 x 4 pipe at the end to look good?
