    Hate to be the barer of bad news but read about people on other forums with the same issue, guy I read about ended up buying a new downpipe because of this, then again could always weld it to your existing pipe, load of hassle either way I guess.

    I have the same engine code but in the quattro and have just received the same de-cat pipe as you bought.
    I take it this won't fit either?

    I have that de-cat on my '04 1.9tdi Quattro Avant and it's fine (AVF engine code). My cat was right next to the turbo. I didn't realise there was different types.

    Looking forward to getting it on. Turbo end looks simple but the other is a different story. Proper rusty.

    FYI Mine had the short seperate cat link, jointed by the gearbox to the turbo. Not the longer pipe running down to the hanger.
