    B7 Cabrio Aftermarket Exhaust

    I'm desperately trying to find a decent aftermarket exhaust for my 2008 A4 2.0T FSI Cabrio (2WD). I had pretty much decided on a Milltek, but on sending them an e-mail for information on different tail pipe trims, I got the following message:

    Hi Paul

    Many thanks for your email.

    At this current moment in time we dont have any systems available for the B7 A4 2.0TFSI Cabriolet. Also the system is only available with the dual 100mm tail trims.

    If we do release a system for the A4 Cabriolet then it will feature on the website in the latest news and products.
    Regards
    Milltek Sport Team

    So, it would appear that I can't have a Milltek exhaust! Please can anyone give me some advice of what aftermarket exhausts ARE available for the A4 B7 2.0 TFSI Cabrio? Ideally, ones with quad pipe finishers (similar to the B7 S4).

    Thanks

    Paul

    Not sure if they meant they haven't got any stock rather than they dont make them as they have them listed on their website...

    I have one on mine albeit a 3.2.

    If you're looking for another manufacturer any of the usuall Audi tuning houses should be able to sort you, Oettinger, MTM, Caractere etc etc to name but a few.

    Sounds like you need to speak to Charlie Orpen at Milltek, he sorted one out for my A4 2.0TDi, they have not done many - the Audi Driver one was the first they did with mine shortly after.

    Here she is:

    Thanks for the responses.

    I spoke to Milltek again, and they said that they do lots of exhausts for the B7 saloon and avant (as your's, Mr_Sixx), but the issue is the fact that my car is the 2.0T Cabriolet.

    The guy I spoke to at Milltek explained that the additional cross-bracing under the car may cause a problem with fitting the exhaust compared to the normal saloon/avant. He asked if I could send some pictures of the underside of the car to help them determine the layout.

    I'll install the exhaust myself, but I need to know that it is possible to get it in place before I pay out the 500-odd for the kit!

    Also really keen on the quad-pipe finish, as opposed to the twin exits...

    I seem to remember whoever fitted mine had to "adjust it" a tad to get it around the bracing. I'm sure if you asked for S4 type back boxes you'd be fine... you would however need to fit the factory S4 valance trim to go with it and this only fits the Sline bumpers from memory.

    Thanks - that sounds about right. I think I'll have a word with Awesome GTI in Manchester, as they're not too far away from me, and they must have come acros this before.

    Do you know if I can just use Milltek S4 back boxes with the 2.0TFSI exhaust? I don't see any reason why not.....but then I'm hardly an expert on this subject.

    As for the S4 valance - I've already looked into this. Can you believe that Audi charge (part only) 35 for the S4 saloon valance, 35 for the S4 avant valance, yet 92 of the S4 cabrio valance.....how the hell does that work!!?? It is a slightly different shape, more sculptured around the exhausts, but that is it!!

    My car is the S-Line Special Edition Cab, so I have the S-Line exterior pack. The question is, will the S4 saloon valance fit my rear bumper, or will I have to go for the S4 cab version?
