Ok people, let's get some collective brain power on this one.
The exhaust flaps on our S3s must have a way of being tied open all the time surely - either electrically or manually with wire.
I'm interested in this because my inner pipes are such a PITA to clean, the bit of black soot seems to just weld itself on and I'm having to resort to fine wire wool every wash now.
I remember on the Aston V8 vantage it was a fuse that could be removed to leave them open all the time and I seem to remember there was something on the old RS3 that someone figured out.
Anyone got any ideas how they work on our cars? Anyone got their standard exhaust on the bench after having a whole new system fitted?
Are the flaps usually shut and then powered open or the other way around?
