    hi. Yeah i have twin pipes but just black. i see you can buy the chrome trim to go on them. but was wondering if the chrome trim on the rest of the a3 line will fit.

    Yes, the ones you can buy from Audi should fit your A3 fine - I bought one for my 1.6 Tdi (single exhaust) and a work colleague fitted 2 to her 1.4tfsi Sport (10 plate). Pretty sure the diameters of the exhaust tips are all the same size.

    The one I bought looks identical to the one in Nally's picture. I'll try and dig out the invoice for the part number.

    Edit: part number is 8P0071771

    It was just under £30 from Audi, but that was over a year ago - luckily I only needed one! The other advantage of getting them from your dealer is that they would be able to confirm that is the right part and that they would fit.

    Just had one of these delivered and whilst it is a perfect fit, it is a flat cut on the end, not the slight chamfer on the original pipe. It looks ok, but would prefer OEM (but not for £30 !!!)
