    2.0TDI (54) exhaust trim

    I have the twin pipe exhaust that ponts downwards and was wondering is it possible to saw it off where it goes downwrads and fit a straight twin trim onto it?

    So anyone tried this and have pics?

    I was thinking about getting this one:

    Could anyone advise on other trim pieces?


    Thanks for any help

    You can buy oem ones from audi that are better. You need to take of the trim pieces that face down and the oem twin chrome ones will screw into place. Great mod for about 30-40. I had them before my milltek stafford audi on ebay will have them

    Thanks just had a check on ebay and they are around 50.

    How did you manage to take the pipes off that face downwards, did you not have to saw them off?

    They are welded on which can be sanded off with a power tool. Local garage did mine, but could have easily done it myself if i could be arsed.

    Dremel will do it no problem which is how I did mine. There are two welds on the bottom of each pipe which the dremel will get through no problem - just watch you dont go straight through the exhaust as well.
