    8P Audi A3 2.0 FSI Sport - Exhaust Upgrade Help

    Hi Members

    I own a 2005 Facelift Audi A3 2.0 FSI Sport and hate the sound of the standard exhaust.

    Can anyone recommend anything I can change e.g stainless steel back box/system for a more beefier sound but not too boy racer?

    Any replies would be appreciated?

    Theres not much available for this model apart from going custom, By far cheaper going to custom exhaust shop rather than any bigger company's as the gain is piss poor.

    Heres some jetex exhausts:

    Jetex Performance Exhausts - Suppliers of Sports Exhaust Systems, Custom Exhaust Parts, Sports Catalytic Converters and Replacement Aftermarket Catalytic Converters, Air Filters and Induction Kits

    Not worth the kudos IMO.

    I agree, gains will be hardly anything so no need to spunk loads of cash, a powerflow custom exhaust would be best option, you can get them for 150 back box only.

    Thanx alot guys for your replies & advice - I'm really after beefier sound rather than performance! Miltek is very expensive also not available for 2.0 FSI! I think custom is really my best bet and cheaper! Will performance air filter produce added sound with sports exhaust? On the net I've seen BMC Air Filter and K&N Air Filter but don't know which is better?
