    Alternative to Milltek's?

    Just bought my S4 at the weekend but already looking at exhausts. I'll only be going for Catback and have found plenty of info on the Milltek's.
    Whats there doesnt seem to be is info on other options available in the UK. Ive seen the Mangnaflow, Fast Intentions, AWE etc from the States but from past experience its a ballache getting things in from there with customs duty etc.

    Are there any other alternative available from UK dealers. Ive always been a fan of the like of Jetex but they dont do one. Im in Aberdeen so cant really travel to these custom guys on ebay.

    Well, I was thinking the painting would be the more important thing to do, so was gonna get that done first. But my redundancy was been whittling away quicker than expected, so may take another month before that gets sorted. Then I was gonna look at the exhaust. So probably be the beginning of next month before I can get down.

    BazC has just got his account back with Miltek though, and said he would beat any price I could find by a considerable margin. Well, thats what he said, and I found it for Ł667, which doesn't seem too bad, and if he can get for Ł600 I would be tempted as I doubt a custom chappy would be any cheaper anyway. But then it depends on the whole de-cat thing I guess. I'll still be getting the quote from stainless creations though as I have said twice before I would never buy Miltek again. May just call them and see what they say.

    EDIT: Just called. The owner of Stainless Creations actually owns a B6 S4, but wasn't in today, so I'll call back tomorrow. As a rough guideline though, the business partner suggested it would be around the Ł700 mark for a cat-back depending on sound levels etc... Also heard from Baz, Ł650. So will decide when I speak to SC tomorrow probably, but like I said, beginning of next month before it happens. I could ask if there would be any discount for doing 2, lol.

    I will ask. If thats 3 of us, then at least that would be something. 2 x S4's really counts as 4 exhausts too, so that would be 5 right off the bat, lol.

    Coullstar, fair enough. TBH, I don't think it would be any cheaper than a Miltek. BUT, having had 2 Milteks before, I'm not overly keen on going down that road again. I had issues with both of them. Could just be unlucky, but who knows? I'm certainly a bit more wary.

    Blueflame only do one for the smaller engines. The growing is just awhat stainless does when hot, theres nothing you can do about that. Millteks do seem to be a bit love / hate hit or miss but from the photos and vids Ive seen they sound the best and sit the best on the car.

    the ones i've seen fit flush, looked after and well cared for are great. but for me, i think for such an expensive piece of metal it should be better graded (possibly improved over the years)

    i prefered the blueflame tips too, but can't deny that miltek do look and sound great, but alittle too oem for my liking

    Get it from Baz? If so, did he quote you the same as he quoted me?

    I had a blueflame on my Mk3 Ibiza Cupra. was one of the finest pieces of stainless ive seen. quality, fit and sound was superb. Pity they dont do one for your s4

    I bought mine as part as a group buy that Awsome GTi were offering early last year, the total cost including the cat was Ł720 all in. 100 Cell is a little less restrictive than the 200 cell. I was advised by bager5 to go with the 200 cell with the remap . Try a company called Amber motorsport I think they sell the Blueflame. Awesome GTi no longer have dealings with Blueflame as they fell out over Blueflame broke contract rules or something like that
