    Rear exhaust box rattles when cold

    Over the last week, when I first start my S3 from cold there is a rattle from the rear exhaust box. I am no expert on these but could it be a baffle that has come lose?

    Does anyone know the average price of an Audi replacement or should I be looking at an after market 'performance' part? If after market I do not want it much louder than it is as standard.

    Cheers

    could be the chrome tips... mine rattle

    be careful though, if it is them rattling you will need to get them welded back on as I had one fall off before now...
