    Finally after much hunting my twin exit GMBH bumper is on.
    Just have to wait until Tuesday for Tweeks to fit my Powerflow zorst. I mucked up the Audi black bumper sticker (over warmed it and stretched it, £27 down the drain) so I used some left over 3M carbonfibre wrap.
    I used some Jaguar X-Type parking sensors which I got from the breakers for just £20 (Cheaper option to new Audi sensors and easier than filling the bumper)

    Sweet, looks good. I'm glad I didn't have to go anywhere with my old tips poking out lol

    Personally, I'd buy another sticker as I think it would look better than the carbon.

    Sensors look spot on, especially at £20

    Hi, the old bumper was on my Avant and it was a GMBH with out cut outs and yes it's up for sale. It's not perfect, I'll post up some pictures and you can make me an offer.

    Right, final update on the exhaust. Had the Powerflow exhaust done today. I've had both rear silencers removed and replaced with straight pipe, due to a shortage of tail pipes my old colleagues at Tweeks sorted me out with a couple of Milltek 3" slash cut tail pipes.
    My old mate Leighton at Tweeks has done an excellent job and the fit and finish is excellent.

    Without the rear silencers the exhaust note is slightly louder but nearly noticeable.

    Looks really good mate, I've just had a full turbo back system put on mine with rear silencers and it drones something terrible. You say yours isn't much louder? I'm really pleased with the fit and finish and it looks great but it's too loud. Will be going back to see what they can do. It is a petrol don't know if that makes a difference with noise.

    Hi AlexGSI2000. Just for you I've just uploaded a video to YouTube. It's still showing as processing so you'll have to give it a while. Sounds quite loud on the outside but I can barely notice any difference on the inside, just a bit more turbo whistle.

    nice.... i like that a lot.... who would have thought removing the silencers would make so little difference to the noise? i would have thought it would be really loud.... i bet it's saved a fair chunk of weight too as zorst's aint lite these days.... do they sell those pipes to fit yourself or are they a custom fit ?

    Sounds nice and deep, was expecting it to sound a little "tinny" - bet your happy with that!
    I may upload a video of mine!
