    How much do you guys and girls think it should cost to get one fitted by a garage? Friend of mine was going to do it but his girl friend has just popped her 2nd child out. Ha. So can't really ask him now.

    How many hours would it take? How much?

    Audi s3 with cat back milltek already fitted.

    1 hour tops.

    no more than £50 I'd say.

    had mine off a couple of times and its very simple.

    3 bolts on the prop (female torx i think) and push to one side ( no need to remove prop )

    3 bolts on down pipe where it bolts onto turbo.

    Then whatever clamps that are on to the catback to to current downpipe.

    You may have to unhook the hangers from rear and rest on hydraulic gearbox stand type device so you have enough room to pull out downpipe.

    Then simply reverse that.

    Did mine at the weekend. It's quite a faff. Took the prop shaft out in the end as it just made it easier.
