    Welcome.

    No just the 1.8T 180 Quattro.

    1.8T's don't reallt respond well to atmospherice Dump Valve as they rely on the air been recirculated back into the system. You can get a similar noise with a recirculating valve and a cold air induction kit or filter. Forge 007P and Splitter seem to be the fav's. I'll PM you with a bit more info on them.

    Hello and welcome to Audi ownership.
    Answer to your questions:
    1 - No.
    2 - In my opinion don't bother. Chav like and do nothing for the engine. In some cases they can have an adverse effect.

    No doubt others will offer different opinions

    Nik.

    They are a bit bling in my opinion, go for a set with black centres. :cool:
