    I could only use 2 bolts in 1 of the trims as well, the missing bolt was too close to the other :)

    They look like a much better item than the OEM ones, which I think really are supposed to be fitted on straight pipes, like the DPF models.

    The ebay pipes look a bit longer which is helpful.

    UPDATE

    I ordered the Chinese tailpipes & they arrived yesterday. I decided that the brackets & bolts that come with them should go in the bin.
    I found some other bolts for the 2 top fittings of each pipe & cut them down so they did,nt stick out.
    They slide right over the endcaps without any mither. Underneath the pipe i drilled using a cobalt drill bit as the pipes are hard. I then used an orbix self tapper to firmly hold them in place, they are not coming off.
    I did stick them out a little as i preferred it like that. They dont look too in yer face & you cannot see the original end caps at all.
    Overall an excellent mod for a fiver, They even remind me of the Milltek end caps that were on my A6 estate.
    I would love to post some pics but i cant...I,m not allowed

    They look the exact same in the photo, but I'm not sure what size they are.

    Btw, I've never had a problem with 'black dots' like warren said.

    Mine didn't have a cover on them to begin with, so you don't need to remove anything mate. Just slot the new ones over the old ones :)

    I have an A6 2.0TDi with a single downward pipe exhaust on either side. So, after reading this thread I'm guessing I dont need to cut the downpipe? So, anyone recommend a suitable single tailpipe cover?

    As an alternative, what do you guys think of something like this:

    70MM CHROME EXHAUST TRIM/TAILPIPE MOTORHOME/CAMPER VAN on eBay (end time 24-Sep-10 11:03:31 BST)

    Its basically a cover modified to fit downward pipes, allowing fumes to exit as normal but giving the appearance of a straight exhaust. Personally, not for me as I think it will be a mission to get straight and will look bad from sides/close-up.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Cheers.
