    Hey fellas, ok well after a year of living with me loud ass power flow exhaust I've finally had enough and gone and changed it to a single box and single outlet (as opposed to the twin I had before). As some of you may remember I changed my mid section last month with a slightly larger box running 2 1/4" pipework back to the back box and then changed to 2" pipework (helping with the flow). Performance and sound wise I feel it much much much better than the power flow, I can actually hold the rpms at 4000 without any silly droning noises, and I can down shift with ease and not having to worry about everyone thinking I'm a loon. any how's enjoy the pics and let me know what you think, personally I prefer this single outlet over the four but lemmi know what u guys think.
    Big thanks to Maz and the guys at MIJ http://www.mijperformance.com/, once again a perfect service and great bunch of guys :beerchug:, going back there soon for the final upgrade (D/P & single sport cat) should be nice.

    Before:

    Check out the crappy welds :keule:

    After:

    You can make out the pipe work reducing from 2.25" to 2"

    Gotta luv the clean look

    BTW: I'm sourcing a new bumper soon, so an oem S3 one, with maybe a slight mod.

    Hi Defratos I like the new exhaust looks loads better than the old one in my opinion.:yes:

    By the way I have a spare rear bumper that I was going to put on ebay, its silver so you would have to get it resprayed. Make me an offer if your interested.

    Hey there Steve, thanks for the offer, but I'd rather just get a new one so I don't have the hassel of taking the old paint off, but thanks again :beerchug:

    No worries mate, I was gonna do that too, spoke to audi and found out they are £240. I managed to get one off ebay for £130 and it cost me £140 to get it painted.

    Defo prefer the new exhaust, looks loads better. Ive always liked the letterbox look on exhausts.

    Slightly OT but where did get your rear wiper arm from? I have got aero blades on the front of mine but need to get the rear sorted as it is still standard.

    Me too, always had letter box exits on all my old cars but with the S3 i've been a bit scared to change the exhaust. I like the sound of it at the moment and don't want it any louder really, got to be done though as the centre section is getting a bit rusty and i just love the look with that letter box exit! :blackrs4:

    Hey there mate, glad you like the exhaust. The rear wiper is a polo rear wiper from www.vagparts.com, Part #: 6Q6998425. Hope this helps.

    Not my cup of tea, personally. But it looks a lot better than the quad outlet. Lol, now stop messing around and get yourself a remap Defratos!

    The quality and fit look excellent. There's nothing worse than a squint letterbox. Not my cup of tea but I can see the appeal. I prefer the OEM+ look, hence the twin 90's :)

    I would have though you should be able to weld a new tailpipe on, but to be honest I'm not sure if it's recommended. Someone on here will probably be able to answers better
