    Definitely been watching - received my DP last week and will get it fitted as I do not have the tools /time / body flexibility.

    Mine is getting done now.
    Manifold, downpipe and sports cat.

    But I have taken the easy option an farmed the work out to a local garage.

    Just had a phone call and I'm glad I did.
    They have had to drop the subframe and move the steering rack.

    They say they have had seized and snapped mani studs and steering rack bolt. Spinning bolts on the subframe and lost a seal for the turbo oil feed.

    Won't be getting the car back today but should be all buttoned up tomorrow 👍

    Ive just fitted mine, I did downpipe and front mount in the same day. I used a ramp at a friends garage and it was a nightmare, We ended up taking the subframe out completley, I personally wouldnt even try it on axle stands they are a nightmare ! But on a plus point, they make laods of difference, OH and as for the second lambda you will need to get this mapped out or get a fooling device for the plug or your engine light Will come on ! Hope this helps ?? :) Mine is now on a stage 2 remap and goes like stink ! Like they should have been from Audi

    Mine's still on stands, waiting for me to stoke up enthusiasm to finish it. It had me beat a couple of days ago.
