    Exhaust System

    Just a general question, does anyone know why some audi's have straight exhaust pipes and some having the ends pointing down? My car is an 09 a8 with straight pipes, i initially thought it was a change to the facelift model around 08, but i have just seen an 09 a8 with down pointing exhaust ends..

    Could be the Trim. maybe SE models have them facing down. s line or sport have them like yours.

    is a odd one really.

    I thought at one point it was down to whether you had a DPF or not. Having one meant that hardly any smoke came out of your exhausts so they could get away with straight pipes. Having said that my standard exhaust had turned-down tips and it had a DPF... so not sure??
