    Just removed my Milltek cat back exhaust from the S3 i'm selling classifieds. Any idea what I should ask for it? Its 10 months old and is the resonated type, so cost £450 new.
    Is it right around £350 do you reckon ?

    would say 300 approx but accept 250 at the very lowest.
    Lifetime warranty i think is only with the original buyer.

    Warranty as said is with original owner only, so they are in effect buying a box with no warranty, despite its age.

    There has been several comparable sales on Edition38 in the last few months, most fetching £150-£200.

    The cost new has no bearing on the relative worth now...

    Maybe not in N Iron, lot round here, Was one recently on the classifieds on here.

    Mind, if enough people say 250+ then you know there are some idiots that will pay that, so deals a good one :icon_thumright:

    Dave, how much did you pay for your milltek out of interest?

    £300 Cat back, brad new. (and just replaced under warranty today as it started rattling).

    I'd reckon not having the original owners warranty would prevent me from buying a Milltek, as I've used it twice now, Milltek aren't all that great, but they are cheap...

    I bought mine well over a year ago second hand. My car is remapped, and i've not had a problem with it.....

    I know what you mean though, always nice to know its under warranty, but they are £450 new, so IMO it's worth the risk....

    Thanks for the (differing) opinions folks, will see how I get on with the 2 PM's i've had for this, or next stop will be e-bay.
    (my car just sold tonight too, so now activley looking for a B6 S4 which will be getting the Milltek treatment too)
