    Hi guys, iv just put a deposit down for my miltek exhaust, i have a pre-facelift a3 1999, and i was told by the guy in the garage that he wouldnt be able to cut the exhaust up in the bumper, as it is pre fabricated to sit at a certain height, does this sound correct?

    as im a bit worried its gonna look really ****, being lipped under the bumper..

    thanks..

    if i was you id go for a custom exhaust, as i bought a miltek for my A3 when i owned that and it looked naff :( as the tail pipes come outand bend down over and sat way too low, the only way i could get round it was chop them off and get them welded on stright and cut a small section of the bumper, only thing is doing that it will void the miltek warrenty.

    sorry this is the only pic i have

    As long as the cut is precise with the length of the tail pipe, and has the right hanging then it should look nice, I would also make sure it is flush with the bumper when it is fitted, as milltek tend to expand and stretch, I have seen as much as 3-4cm from hard driving, and when cooled it goes back to its original place.
