    Hi all,

    My '98 A4 Avant 1.8 non-turbo (ADR) has an aftermarket exhaust on it which needs to go. I have a feeling there's supposed to be a triangular bracket/hangar on the OEM rear box but I don't appear to have this.

    Could anyone confirm that there is such a bracket please?

    Also if anyone has one laying about, i'd take it off your hands!

    I've found a cheap centre and rear pattern exhaust on 'bay for about £60 inc delivery - any experiences of these specific budget systems?

    Cheers

    There is such a bracket at the very back yes. Triangular bracket bolted to the chassis and the rubber hangs off that in a v shape.

    A pattern exhaust will be naff, a cheap pattern exhaust will be very very naff. Expect to change it again in at the most 2 years

    Sounds better than changing this stainless aftermarket one twice in 18 months ;)

    The rear silencer falls apart internally after X amount of time. This is the second one now (OMP). The car isn't worth spending £300+ on a custom full stainless steel exhaust.
