    Not a great photo, but they're 3.5" MkI TT V6 tips. A bit bigger than standard giving more presence. It's a fine line between larger and Citroen Saxo and all down to opinion too. Good Luck!

    I welded them on at work after cutting off the originals, any garage can do it and it will take no longer that 30mins tops I attached mine in my tea break and took 20mins

    I bought my S4 with the back boxes removed and they had welded some larger mild steel pipes on, sounds nice but didnt look like i wanted it too so looked at ebay and found a pair of milltek tips for £35 so have now got the milltek look which is perfect !

    Cheers, they are 19" x 8.5 front, 19" x 9.5 rears, ET 35 front and back, running 235 35 19 all round, gives a nice bit of stretch at the rears

    2x 2.75" - Slight slash cut & inward rolled. Suites and matches the lines of the bumper perfectly.

    hi all whilst we are on the subject of exhaust tips does anyone know if the twin outlet single back box found on the b7 1.9 and 2.0tdi will fit straight on to the b6 1.9tdi . at the moment my exhaust tips are hidden. i was thinking about changing the backbox to a double outlet and trimming the rear valance to suit . any info would be welcome

    Im on the look out for some exhaust tips, went to a couple of local exhaust places but I think they talking rubbish - one chap quoted me £140 for two 85mm tips and weld them on,

    Those eBay tips look quite well, iv just had the rear s line bumper fitted to my avant,

    What sort of price are you guys paying for a couple of tips including fitting?

    Cheers

    I got a pair of cat backs in stainless from LongLife exhausts in Leeds (aka Tony Banks) 550 quid - went for RS6 sized oval outlets - don't fret - my S4 is still badged as an S4 - I just went with something still within the Audi style without going all ricer with a catering bean can sized tip!

    Cracking service, after sales care was good (needed exhausts tucking further up to avoid some speed bumps round my way) and the exhaust sounds awesome - pops, crackles and burps on the over run - on a long cruise it doesn't drone or resonate, very happy!

    Some really nice pipes there guys, thanks for sharing.

    I just stayed with my original stainless downpipes on the car, but kept them clean and in good order.
    Not as nice as some of yours but still ok at 6 years old and 100k miles....
