    What's everyone think to the above? It's the cheapest decent system I've found, if anyone knows of any that are cheaper please enlighten me!

    Hi mate, I am considering similar right now for my BKD. Looks very standard but sounds a lot nicer than standard from youtube videos!

    Why not look into a decat also though rather than a catback? Cats aren't necessary on diesels

    Ayup thanks for the reply, yeh I started off looking at downpipes but they all seem really expensive for what they are! I think the catbacks sound a lot better too with the turbo howl and subtle sound, also looked at backbox delete too but Although its cheaper to do i think it sounds rough compared to the cobra catback witch I must say sounds buet!

    There's a few vids on YouTube, just type in a3 backbox delete, then watch the cobra one again and see what you think!?

    What you think to the backbox delete? Does it sound well on your car?

    I had the Cobra turbo back exhaust on my Seat Leon Cupra R - I had the non res system and I wish I had of gone resonated. My LCR was running close to 300bhp and the exhaust was loud but nice. I have videos on youtube under "cupratim"

    Not sure on the TDI version though - I was looking into this myself at one point but decided to gut the DPF and just map the car - after all its a diesel not a petrol car - so the noise will be different anyway.

    What I can say about Cobra is that the exhaust was superbly built and fitted precisely. I managed to change mine on my driveway with a couple of axle stands!
