    Over the last week, when I first start my S3 from cold there is a rattle from the rear exhaust box. I am no expert on these but could it be a baffle that has come lose?

    Does anyone know the average price of an Audi replacement or should I be looking at an after market 'performance' part? If after market I do not want it much louder than it is as standard.

    Cheers

    could be the chrome tips... mine rattle :)

    be careful though, if it is them rattling you will need to get them welded back on as I had one fall off before now...
