    Some nice bits, you'll probably find the exhaust won't get much louder. They are notoriously quiet on A4's for some reason.

    Hope you're gonna sort out that ride height too...

    most CAT equipped cars are pretty quiet as he cat is a very good silencer, and a turbo acts as a very good silencer too. If you unbolted the system from the cat it wouldn't be all the loud anyway.

    I was shunting my landrover around my mates farm with no exhaust bar the turbo downpipe and it was only producing a reasonable burble, certainly wasnt loud.

    The flexis are a tricky one, there is differences between quattro and non-quattro, but there are also differences between pre-97 and post-97 rear calipers. All the front hoses are the same. but there are at least 4 different types of rear hoses (i think s4 is different again). Yours is post-97 and i'd bet they supplied the earlier hoses as someone else on this forum (byzan perhaps?) had the same issue.

    Yep it was i !!!

    Goodridge hoses maybe? If you contact Phil Martin @ goodridge, he will have the pattern for the rear caliper hoses that go to the banjo joints on the capiler. The car to axle ones fit no problem, its the caliper end thats different. Its around 1997/98 where Auid used the alloy calipers with the banjos as far as i can tell.Assuming you are 2wd anyway

    HTH

    Ans since i fitted a cat, i have lost the drone i had (thank god) although on full chat is was great, it got tiresome on a run
