    Cool New Exhaust!

    Hey,

    Decided to get a custom built one rather than a factory one. Here's a pic (taken by Jonse) what do you think? It is silent on the motorway!

    (Towbar fully removable was fixing wiring the other day!!)

    Ive never heard a diesel with a stainless exhaust, what does it sound like pulling away just out of interest? has it made a diff to throttle response?

    I perhaps went a little OTT and got quads (alá S6) which is pretty good as was ordered from the factory debadged (by original owner) My neighbour has an S6 and says my zaust looks (but doesn't sound) better :O) Lifetime transferrable warranty with Tony Banks in Leeds.

    Yeah sorry don't come here much, it sounds great at low revs and is quiet on the motorway. Throttle response didn't really make too much of a difference. I got it more because the old one was blowing, Audi wanted a small fortune for a replacement and I'd used this place before so thought, why not!

    I looked at Quads, are they 2.5'? Do they not vibrate and rub? Is it a custom job?

    It looks nice!

    Just ran out with ruler, they are rolled-in 3"

    Yep custom by Tony Banks in Leeds

    No vibration or rubbing to report...however it's a complete PITA to keep them shiny...worth it though!

    Yeah agree with that. Mine was only £250 worth every penny. Only downside being a dirty diesel is it takes AGES to clean!

    As said earlier I wanted a system with a transerrable lifetime warranty, so will only have to be done once.

    I just use some cleaner wax on the visible polished bits at each wash, it defo sounds better than stock when loud pedal is pressed
