    Replacement exhaust - Audi only place???

    OK I need a new mid section and backboxes for my A4 Sline Quattro (2005) - took it to my local exhaust garage who told me yes we can replace....turns out there supplier delivered the wrong parts as the exhaust they sent was totally different.
    Cutting a long story short they then proceeded to tell me that the exhaust had to be ordered directly from Audi as know one does aftermarket replacement exhaust systems for my car. Is that correct, no aftermarket suppliers stock this exhaust system?

    Phone Audi to get a price - £300 for the mid section and over £400 a piece for the two backboxes. Thats almost £1200 without even fitting!.

    Can someone please advise if there are other suppliers I can use?

    Joe' exhaust is a good buy, having seen it myself it should last quiet well.... how are you going to get it from A to B unless you want it fitted?, could ask Dale if he wants to do it on the 2 post lift in the workshop?

    He's not said what engine or if his is a quattro...

    Dealer prices are extortionate, Miltek works out to be about £1000 with the boxes and the mid section, is that about right?

    It would be the better option for me (Miltek), but if you're looking to keep the car quiet and standard then OEM exhaust is the way to go

    As Carl says, Dale could fit the exhaust for you in about an hour I'd wager. Although if you have a DPF at the moment it will need to be mapped out, which is no bad thing!

    I also know a local guy who could remap & DPF your car while it's having the exhaust fitted, probably an hour all in, and would be less than a Miltek...

    Not sure on all the parts you'd need, however the exhaust I have is a single pipe from the 1st cat (in the engine bay), and the sections I've had replaced consist of a single combined CAT/DPF unit (innards removed from DPF), which then leads to the rear section which splits in two around the quattro/rear struts and 2 backboxes. Would imagine it would fit a 2.0tdi, but not 100% sure...

    Thank you guys for all the kind offers of supplying me an exhaust. I have today managed to sort out an stainless steel exhaust system fabricated for my car at a very reasonable price. Must say i am pleased with it and it sounds quite nice too.

    Apologies for not getting back sooner - was running around trying to sort it today as I couldnt drive the car as it was.

    £300 for a stainless cat-back is not to be sniffed at either!

    went for a oem look so nothing to extravagant tailpipe wise, nice subtle tone to it aswell.
