I could only use 2 bolts in 1 of the trims as well, the missing bolt was too close to the other
Would these chrome pipes fit an diesel audi 1.9 TDI? 57plate
thanks but looking at yours and the ones in the add look different ?
Actually i would say it looks OEM, the Audi ones i got looks pretty much the same except instead of bolts i have allen screws
They're definitely the same mate. The pics look the exact same as the ones I received.
yep sorry your right
looking to close into things. i know its 15ish days but how long was yours?
Mine took 13 days, including weekends.
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.
I've just ordered some so we will see how they fit soon. It's in at awesome next week for a remap and the front sprngs fitted
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
Go on, get some pics up!
ive took the factory fitted down pointing tips off my A3 2.0 TDI (140) anyone any ideas what size exhaust trims i need i think if ive measured right there.75mm? but ive been told they could be 55mm??????? can anyone let me know before i order off flee-bay
can you tell me what mm the tips are ? i.e the bit that sticks out the exhaust?
I will have a look for you tomorrow and let you know
just sorted out my rear bumper and fitted these. they aren't the perfect fit for my but thats because it an 09/10 bumper,
trouble is hows everyone doing with the splattering? ive only just done a short journey and the cars plastered in black dots!?
whats the solution ? will pulling them further forward solve it as i have the room too without looking poop
Check out the pics of mine with the pipes fitted. You DO NOT need to cut off the original tailpipes off. They are the Chinese stainless ones
yeah thanks mate, i did have a look at yours before, do you not get any black soot on your rear?
hi gee, is this the correct item on ebay? 170529386820
are you guys fitting these to 2.0Tdi or 1.9tdi
I have a 1.9tdi sport with the downturned pipes and I am wondering if this will fit.
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.
Audi A2 A3 A4 A6 S4 S6 Appropriative Muffler Tip New: eBay Motors (item 180549964799 end time Aug-26-10 22:50:42 PDT)
are these the ones ?
thats the ones ive just ordered so fingers crossed lol, gee do you need to take the cover off the origional pipe? mine seems to have pipe inside a pipe do you need to take the outer bit off. hope that makes sense lol
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
Mines a 2.0 tdi but i would think the back box is the same, but i,m sure someone will tell me i,m wrong
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.
