On the way home from work last night in the pouring rain my exhaust decided to give up the ghost.
Not sure where the problem is but it does seem to sound like its near the front, so possibly manifold or the front end of the pipe.
Naturally I'm a bit fearful of the cost of a new pipe given how Audi love to charge the earth so I was wondering if anyone could let me know how many pieces the exhaust pipe has on the quattro (twin pipe) models?
I'm just hoping its not a single piece pipe as I'm sure that will cost a fortune.
Also, while on the subject, as I drive the car whenever I turn left I seem to get an awful knocking noise from the from drivers side. This makes me think that the exhaust is somehow hanging down and is catching on the suspension at the front perhaps? Due to the undertray I can't see anything handing down underneath the car.
I'm going to get it booked in somewhere before it blows up, but I'd be grateful if anyone could shine some light on what is likely to have gone, how many pieces the exhaust comes in, and what potential cost I'm looking at
