    question about exhaust on my new A3

    Hiya,

    Just got a quick query about the exhaust on my car, It's a white A3 s-line black editon 2.0ltr TDI, It's only got a single exhaust pipe and ive seen lots of A3's the same as mine with a double one just wondered if anyone knows why some have single and some double? sorry might be a stupid question but I thought they all come the same and double I never got the option and I did buy it brand new in march.

    Thanks

    Looking at the local Audi dealers website, i can see that the 2012 A3 TDI does indeed have the option of comming with 2 pipes in the left side. You may not have the complete S-Line exterior package. It could also just be an aftermarket muffler or exaust that has been installed.

    If like me you have the 2.0 TDi 140PS you will have one exhaust trim whereas the 2.0TDi 170PS will have two trims.

    I also have the 140 and want to get a twin tip in the future,it's annoying seeing every single other Audi on the road with twin tips

    I think this is Audi's way of making the 170 more superior to the 140 as there is no other difference

    I didnt get this option but I chose everything else, I didnt think you could opt for part S-line equipment, it was all or nothing :-/

    I wouldnt like to think anything is aftermarket on it!! x

    I have a 140 bhp and came with a double exhaust, so must have been an option.

    I think Sarah's A3 was stolen some weeks back Justin.

    Thanks that sad to hear. I have just purchased the 140bhp black edition 2.0 TDI and it came with single exhaust just wondered the best way to convert to a double,would it be a welded tip? would be grateful of any advice can;t find the black edition thread.

    Buy a back box and rear valance for a 170 BHP TDi. Probably not many around 2 nd hand so you may have to use the stealers
