    Well mot came this morning which passed :D then off to Audi for them to check my roof rails on the 12yr corrosion warranty which they told me no, so I went home to change the slightly to short pipe on my n429 bypass (or what ever way round the numbers go haha) and why my car started to whistle with high revs. Turns out a breather into the tip has split, which can't be repaired/botched :( I don't have the cash at the minute for a badger 5 tip either booo!! Is a standard tip cheap or does anybody have a spare I can chuck on?

    It wants doing ASAP to be honest as it will be sucking in air that it is not aware of, have you checked out the V3 badger5 tip? That's better value, worth upgrading to it too.

    Speak to Phil Miller, I believe he has a standard TIP.

    I know what that's like! I had to get 2 new tyres before my holiday last week and then got a puncture on another tyre. The V3 is £125 + £10.60 p&p

    V3 does not have the billet, the end just curves down to the turbo size. The V2.2 is the latest with the billet adaptor that makes it smoother transfer into the turbo, I think that's just under £180 + p&p.
