    Hello new to fourm so I don't know if I posted on the right place

    So I fitted a milltek system with sports cat, but got a issue with down pipe rubbing on my prop just seeing if I had same problem? Or any ways of sorting it out?

    Did you buy it second hand or new? I'm sure there are differences between Quattro pipes and non Quattro

    Only thing I can think of is that it came of a fwd 2.0 tfsi, but I'm sure somebody with more knowledge will be over to correct me.

    I had the same problem. Bought a 2nd hand decat downpipe from a mate, and I know it came off his S3. He fitted it at work for me since he'd already done his, and has a lift.
    He said it was awkward compared to his, as it touched the prop. Just a touch!
    He heated the pipe and bent it to clear the prop.
    He was proper confused as it had been no bother on his car.
    It's been fine for me since.
