    When i fitted mine the audi part number was ZGB8P0071902
    Mine is a 2004 2.0 derv (same exhaust as yours)

    The pipes in the above post are the exact ones I bought. The price is also very cheap

    Heres the thread with quite a lot of info
    170 TDI chrome exhaust tip

    There are two welds on each pipe which removes the old trims as shown below. I also cut the ends of the tailpipes square so that when you look from the back you don't see the old pipes as much in the middle, One other thing i did was put plenty of silver grease around the screws to stop them corroding..

    What's the best way to break the welds that hold the outer pipe covers in place. Good old brute force?

    Wait, am I reading this right?

    I have a 140 with the down swept non stainless exhaust, like you see on most 140s. So does my exhaust have tail pipe covers already?

    There is no chrome or anything, just two down swept pipes.

    Can you get chrome tail pipes which fit over these and point straight out the back and not down?

    Sorry for the dumb post, I am at work and cant see the pics, I am also typing one handed as the other hand is holding the phone!

    Cheers for those pics matt! I have been wondering how this is accomplished. Just bought a pair, very well priced!!

    ALTDi your pipes, the ones that point down are covers as you say... these little black bits are cut off and replaced with the chrome ones.

    Hi mate, I used a dremel to cut into the weld and then used a flat screwdriver behind the chrome covers to force them off the tailpipe. You need abit of force but watch your knuckles.

    As i said you really need to use a grider, the welds are very strong and its not just a tack weld IIRC its 4 welds about 15mm each but cant remember for sure

    Brilliant - just what I've been after - never liked the down turned exhaust - much preferred the facelift tail pipes - bargain price to - I'll get my local friendly mechanic to fit for me as I don't have a dremel or grinder.

    audi a3 chrome exhaust finishers

    Hi guys, I have just got my a3 exhaust finishers, I have taken the existing finishers off, but the new ones supplied by stafford audi from ebay, they dont seem to be fiiting on. They apparantly come with pre set fittings, but I cannot seem to get the bottom fittings on and the exhaust to fit on.

    Anyone else had this problem? please help? Can anyone advise me on how I am supposed to fit these?

    I had to tighten the top screws about 1/4 of a turn so that the bottom screws weren't floating in the wind, but after that no problem at all and the trims are rock solid on the exhaust.

    Weather depending I should hopefully get this done this weekend.

    I have my shiny new tips (dispatched v.quickly from Staffordshire) and I have a lend of a Dremel.

    Will I get away with the Dremel alone, or am I likely to need a grinder for the welds (one top and one bottom of each pipe I assume)?

    How did others get on, what was their approach?

    Dremel did it fine for me - both welds are at the bottom, so easy to get to. Once I'd done the welds I found a screwdriver between the exhaust and the trims and then a bit of moving up and down of the trims removed them easily.

    the instructions i got from stafford audi, it says the top fittings are preset and do not need to be tightened, but i tried the bottom ones and they dont seem to tighten as the fittings are too short?
