A4 3.0 TDI Exhaust mods on a budget
Hi, I currently own a B7 A4 3.0 TDI quattro earlier 201 version. I would like to share my recent story. It all began when I rang MIJ Performance to ask if I could have my original tips changed, they advised it shouldn't be a problem but asked me to make an appointment with them as they'd have to see my car first so this is what I did & I paid them a visit. They got my car up on the ramps, took one look at it & said they wouldn't be able to help me as my pipe was slightly curved & it was also too high so they wouldn't be able to centralise the tips into the diffuser, they could probably bodge it but that's not what they do as they're not cowboys there. I would apparently have no option here but to at least replace the two new back boxes or go for a cat back however at no point during this conversation was it mentioned that they actually some stock tips specifically shaped for this type of exhaust & shamelessly tried selling me two back boxes for 380 smackeroonies. I declined of course as I just didn't have the money but the guy I spoke to was very convincing & I had to say no about four times before he let me go. Anyway I continued on with my search for tips which is when I stumbled across these on ebay, also discovering it was MIJ that was selling them for only £9.99 each inc postage. I couldn't afford or justify getting a new exhaust fitted atm, especially when there's nothing wrong with my current standard one. I fitted these myself, it was a very simple process indeed & they also fit perfectly with the standard s- line diffuser too. I must say I am very happy with how they look, they don't stick out at all, great quality & you'd never know that they were bolted on by just looking at them. I will eventually get a full stainless but in the meantime on a budget think I this is a great option for those that want the look but can't afford the real thing.

Does that mean the downward pipe isnt a problem to cut and fit straight pipes instead without the problems MIJ are saying.
