    getting some S3 tail pipes welded onto my standard backbox because i'm such an S3 wannabe...haha

    Anyone know where i can buy some?

    Also is it hard to fit an S3 bumper to a 1.8T?

    Regards

    I think there have been a couple of posts in the past about S3 rear bumpers being fitted to A3's.

    IIRC the S3 bumper will fit, if you use the A3 clips etc. Something like that.

    Bugger. I've just binned a standard S3 backbox as I have replaced it with a sebring effort!

    If only I'd known.. Sorry.

    Try giving AmD a call. I'm sure they will have a few old exhausts lying around after people have upgraded to milteks etc... I'm sure they would be able to help.

    yeh the whole £350 was refunded but they didnt put the back box on properly as u could still see it under the car.

    I bought a Ripspeed trim today and have had that welded too one of the exit pipes and the other has been blocked off by sawing off the tail and welding some steel plate over it.

    Is that a good idea or will this be making the car work to hard to get rid of fumes? if so i can easily saw off the steel plate.

    Let me know what you think please guys???

    Regards
    Dave

    have half the exit to the exhaust covered off is not a good move on a turbo car in my opinion!

    here are some pics with the new trim. I'm concerned about having one of the exit pipes at the box covered. i will just take it easy until i know its not going to bugger up anything.
