    My exhaust sounds more than a bit wimpy on my 1.8T Sport. I have fitted an aftermarket rear box that I had custom made for my last A4 and even when we chopped the old box off and ran it (come on we've all done it for a giggle) it was still as quiet as when the standard box was in place.

    I've been thinking of cutting out the centre silencer and replacing it with a straight through section to make it a bit noisier. I don't want it to sound like the average McDonalds Racer Saxo but would like a bit of a burble from it.

    Is it worth doing, anybody done it, did they put a section of pipe in to follow the original route or just add a straight section of pipe to bypass the box?

    Might be too loud then plus will do your head in on the motorway may be get a small res box which might do the trick.

    I've have a straight through pipe with a small rear box.. I like it but it is fairly loud.

    Stainless system with centre silencer removed and 200 cell sports cat (think my mate got a bit carried away with the revving though ha ha!)
