    Been pondering ever since i bought my B6 Avant, and cant make my mind up if tailpipes will look good or not?

    With not having the Gmbh/ S-Line body kit some of them look like wheel barrow handles sticking out the back, if you have done this post some pics, avant or not lets see the different styles of what people have gone for!!

    Cheers

    If you buy a 1.8T or 3.0 standard rear lower valance then the cutouts will be there

    They're just tips welded onto the box. My local garage did it, I think they were a bit fiddly to line up. Shame you weren't here last week as I've just sold the system from the cat back.

    I think the twins suit the A4 a lot.

    I agree. I had the standard diesel lower on the rear of mine, swapped for a twin cutout one and added the tailpipes. Looked good I think, for 6 weeks....

    They're few and far between. Scour ebay for a breaking car, or £140 ish new I think for an unpainted one.

    They look about the same size as mine were.

    Some people fit 100mm tips, for the look I wanted they're too big, especially on a non-GmbH lower.

    No, didn't sound any different, or cover the car in black soot as people seem to think.

    90mm straight cut round and i set them so they only project out from the bumper around 25mm, just enough to stop any soot sticking to the bumper

    i had a friend weld them while i held them in position, the tubing was a nice fit over the existing pipe so we tacked them in place inside the pipe, never had a problem

    Not a great pic but gives the idea.

    Lower valance off of QuattroJames (Still needs painted) and a standard 1.8T exhaust off of ebay!

    Doesn't say it's from an Avant so you'd have to make sure. It's from the same seller as I got my bonnet from which after 10 days I'm still waiting for :/
