    Going to Midland VW tomorrow who quoted me £108 + vat - however I am expecting it to be more than this as I believe it will want 'modifying ' to fit.

    Just gotta stick up for Sam on this one because he did reply within minutes with solutions regarding the non fitment of down-pipe..

    The gift option was 100% my idea, so many people brought from him on here so I trusted him and saved myself a bit of money.

    Been to Midland VW today mate, downpipe was extremely close to hitting the prop shaft when standard, however with a few modifications it fitted perfectly. Drove it for about 80 mile today and haven't heard it rub once.

    Cost £192 all in (including the supply and fitting of red dog bone mount) couldn't be happier with the service there, very helpful and explained everything in detail. Definitely worth the 1 1/2 hr drive down there.

    So hopefully that gives you an idea of how much it might cost, I'd definitely recommend seeing Midland VW if they aren't too far away for you.
