    Show Me Your Exhausts!

    Im starting to consider my options for an exhaust system so was looking for inspiration at the moment.

    Will be ordering a rear diffuser from the s4 as I wil be going with a dual exit system, really fancying some rs4 style tips on each side but would like to see what other options I have.

    Or could a rs4 diffuser be modified to fit? without it looking tacky like??

    Would there be much if any power gain through a full stainless de cat on a turbo diesel engine?

    Intrested in doing this myself I have 2.0T with dual exit already but tempted by rs4 or s4 pipes ? Guess for me RS4 look would be easier as I could just fit the S4 diffuser and have bigger exhaust trims welded on ? Any one know if thats possible ?

    Yeah you can get an S4 quad tip valence, fits straight on, and then get the RS4 style tips welded on. IMO it doesn't look that good, as the bumper is lower on the RS4 and the whole tip sits inside the bumper, whereas if you use the S4 valence only half the tip will sit in the bumper, making the exhaust look lower. I would get a nice set of quad S4 style tips instead (intact it's what I'm doing, custom catback with quad tips, hopefully done by end of next month)

    dont put rs4 in a s4 difuser it looks stupid
    cut outs are diggrent shape
    as for modding a rs4 difuser iv seen 1 or 2 done and also had a guy work on 1 for me never got the look right so never fitted it

    I have been planning RS4 tails for month to go with an S4 diffuser but i might not bother reading this, maybe some 4" rolled in pipes instead?

    4" rolled tips would look better if your planning on going standard dual exit valence. The DTM models had 4" tips.

    Yeah Chris I think I'll do that, I didn't know the DTM had 4" tips, are they rolled in / out or slash?

    Marrow I think Unikarl's mate did it so I couldn't tell you but iv done a fair bit if wrapping myself and I think it should be easy enough. Gonna redo mine though cos I want the black carbon before I change exhaust tips.

    Apparently the tips are £35 each but I'm sure you'll get them much cheaper!

    I seem to remember paying £20 for a single oval from local powerflow dealer about 5 years ago and one of the welders I mentioned at work modded a stainless exhaust for my old car that I bought cheap off fleebay with it so I guess with the way prices have gone £35 is prob about right but I will have a look around the net any way.

    Did you source the new tips or powerflow? i might pop down and ask them about some 3.5 or 4" tips instead of RS4's.
