    Got my Milltek catback system fitted yesterday by JPW in Portsmouth. Very impressed, it's just what I wanted, a bit louder than stock so you know it's there but nothing outrageous, makes the V6 sound beautiful.
    Very impressed with JPW as well, reminded me of Autotechnik before Vanessa left.

    Resonated, Milltek wisely don't do non resonated for the 2.8. Really can't understand why anyone would want non resonated, if I want my car to sound like a Saxo then I'll buy a Saxo.
    It's a bit like wanting tyres with the loudest road noise - very strange, I must be getting old.

    Does the resonated version dispense with the center box?

    As you can see from AndyMac's pic, the center box seems to hang lower than the rest of the system - mine does this too and with the car being lowered, I find I have to watch going over speed bumps (loads of them up here unfortunately).

    I've just had mine into the Audi dealer to see if they could adjust the box slighty, so it wasn't so low - but no luck. As good as its gets apparently.

    Does look very nice i think the tailpipes on the MIJ look a little larger thats the only thing to sway me at the moment and they do the full for the 1.8t with sports cat for about 450 if i remember correcrly.

    Hi Andy, i like the look of the exhaust system. Can you please tell me how much it cost? Also if you know the price of the high flow cat system? Also if not asking to much if you or anybody else for that matter knows a place in or near London that supplies and fits them. Phone number would be good. Cheers Mark.:hubbahubba:

    Hi Andy, Thanks for that. Mine is the a4 2.8 Q also. Its pricey for the high flow cat though eh. Would it make a lot more differance do you know?

    Milltek don't do one for the V6 so the price is irrelevant.
    Cats are expensive full stop, about £700 for the stock one from Audi.
    A cat only saps about 10bhp so I doubt you'd even notice. Better to spend the £400 on a remap, which will also give you 10bhp but better response and much needed fuel economy.

    That sounds good. I know i ask too much but you dont get if you dont ask. But where abouts is a good place to get a remap? Oh i live in east London. Cheers Mark.

    P.s andy i changed the temp sender the other day but still got the prob with temp and oil temp. So i have just bought new thermostate,water pump,cambelt kit,and a drive belt. going to do it tomorrow. Bloody expensive just to do thermostat. parts £230.
    Cheers Mark.

    had a stainless steel cat back system to my 2.8Q yesterday by MIJ, couldn't be happier.£400 all in with a choice of about 50 tailpipes, maybe a bit louder than most people would like on here, but they can do them almost silent if thats what u want, i went for the mid-sport option.
