    What exhausts are S3 guys running these days

    I've got a 2010 S3 Sportback that runs a Milltek un-resonated turbo back system along with an APR Stage 2+ setup. My wife finds it a little loud these days now we have a baby girl and I'd like to get something thats a little quieter. Some of the welds on my exhaust are not looking 100% so I'm thinking about replacing the whole system.

    Given a choice what would you guys install into your cars, is Milltek still the preferred option?

    The other option is having an exhaust specialist fit a resonator and re-weld where necessary. I'm not totally averse to that.

    Mine's a sort of *******ised resonated Milltek,as it's been cut etc to fit an ATP turbo kit onto it,but the resonated pipe is reasonably quiet as a stock item,and I've been happy with the quality of the product,especially as it's still going,and coping with somewhere over 500bhp.
    Scorpion are a good alternative.

    Thanks for the feedback guys will go down the route of having a resonator fitted and seeing what kind of refurb my local exhaust specialist can do for me. Would love a supersprint but yeah they aint cheap!

    Sounds a bit like mine.....it's pretty quiet knocking around town,but AMD have said it's one of the loudest they've had at full bore,but I expect that's down to it being cut around to accept the BT kit,as I'd mentioned earlier.
    If the OP can find,or has a good exhaust specialist who can make up a resonated section then that will almost certainly be the cheapest option,although it may still be worth dropping Milltek a line or calling them for a price.
