Well i drove the 2.5 hours down to BCS Automotive to have a full TBE exhaust fitted by these guys. I opted for the non power valve system with a 200 cell sports cat . Upon arrival i was greeted by Dave and was showed to the waiting area where nigel was.
After a few cups of tea in a quite chilly waiting area the exhaust was done.
Dave said its probably one of the cleanest S3s he has ever seen and was very impressed with it under neath. Was happy about that lol
Dave was telling me about the amount of work that goes into this exhaust as its one of the very few FULL 3" turbo back exhauts. The workmanship that has gone into this exhaust is second to none. A genuine 100% stainless steel exhaust, All flanges are Stainless steel. Lambda bosses are Stainless steel. Inside of the exhaust is Stainless steel
The tailpipes i went for are more or less what you get on the mk5 GTI. Im not a fan of the Jet cut on the special tips you get on other exhausts. These tips have just the right amount of poke out of the rear valance when hot. but when they are cold they are nicely tucked away. Right tip is slighty longer than the left as to follow the line of the rear valance.
Let the pictures do some talkin
After the exhaust was fitted i was showed underneath the car and told about the exhaust. They also fitted a new poly bush gear box bush .
They also asked what was happening with my old exhaust. I said i was keeping it. Then i went off to pay. When i returned they had dropped my rear seats moved my suitcase and turned the inside of my car into a bubble wrap cave. The exhaust was wrapped in endless layers of bubble wrap and carefully placed in my car. THATS CUSTOMER SERVICE FOR YA.
