    Exhaust Sound Upgrade (Advice)

    Hello guys, I was just wondering is it possible to make a 5dr 2007 1.6 FSI A3 sound like this? THIS

    I'm new to audi and only 18 so it will cost so much to get insured on a 2.0, 3.2 or a 1.8 XD, thanks.

    Errrm, no. That's a 5 cyl engine which has it's own note.

    Probably as close as you will come is a decat, non-res full Milltek setup. Maybe something with those flappy nonsense things in the exhaust, somebody could advise on a maker with those .... ££££.

    Ask yourself:

    (a) Will the sound make you go faster?
    (b) Is it worth it on a non-turbo car?

    If the "smile factor" is worth it, go for it, but personally i'd save for a 2.0T in a couple of years. Considered spending on a tunable car is much better than aiming for a sound or look from a totally different car.

    Don't ask this rover metro owner:

    As mentioned above that's a 5pot engine with a non resonated cat back, so in short no.

    I'd personally save any money for now and get a 2.0 or 3.2 in a few years. If you are wanting to mod the engine for performance gains the 2.0T would be a better choice, however if you are after an amazing engine note then the 3.2 would be the way to go.

    I don't know about the insurance side of things but you could definitely pick up a car with the budget you have.

    Don't think you'd need anywhere near the 4K for modding so you might be better putting this towards the car, especially as modding a car can seriously increase insurance premiums. Just something to think about anyway. The A3 is a great car and I can't recommend one enough.

    Thanks for the response, as i'm 18 my insurance costs around 3.2k on an A3 lol and I don't want a corsa because thats what most people my age have haha, i was looking at a mercedes B170 and costs around the same as an a3 but I'll probs just go with an A3, this is an Audi form after all

    Woah that's a joke! They really do try and price people out of nice cars if you're young. Madness I'm not that much older and my insurance on the S3 is nothing like that, that's with mods declared as well.

    1.6 will be a nippy car and a lot more refined than a corsa. The cabin is also a much nicer place to be, if it's going to cost you that much I would just make sure you get the best spec possible and don't rush into it.

    fair enough i agree with all of that ....apart from the RS3 kit haha. its a 1.6 don't waste your money other than that go for it. minus the rs3 kit you're looking at around £1k.
    alloys £500 (dependant on what you have in mind)
    RNS-E £400 (mk2 unit from ebay)
    privacy glass £150 ish
