    Im thinking of getting bluefin later this year and was also interested in the milltek system with the downpipe. Has anyone here had this exhaust and downpipe fitted to their 2.0TDI? Im wondering weather or not its a worthwhile thing to do as regards to cramming a bit more power out?

    Yes I did this mod. You aren't likely to gain a huge amount of BHP, probably 5 - 10bhp on a diesel but the car will drive and sound better, turbo spool up is noticeably quicker and the car sounds less 'diesel' like, I had the full system with non-resonated back box.

    Another plus is the jet style pipes look much better than the oem downturned ones without looking after market.

    thanks mate. The car wasnt over-loud with the non resonated back box was it? Also noticed in your signature that you have/had a green panel filter for your A3? where can I get one of them? Cheers.

    Not a great deal louder than standard which was one of my requirements, just a deeper more resonate sound on full chat.

    I got the filter from JBS (Custom code) in chesterfield via post - approx £40 from memory.

    I was at GTI Inters this weekend and spoke to one of the guys at Custom Codes - was quite unsure what to make of them. Did you get your car mapped there? if so, what is it kicking out?
