    Audi do them and I think they're £50 + fitting. They are listed as just for the FSI models I think but fit the TDI as well. You have to cut off the existing 'downswept' ones and fit the new ones.

    I'm going to keep it quite subtle, with 2 of the below

    [​IMG]

    I'll post pictures of the car when done.

    The only thing I would say, is that i you are planning on having them with the Votex kit they need to be extended as the kit squares off the rear of the car. At the moment it looks like someone stole my tailpipes.....but only till tomorrow /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/yes.gif

    You can fit the FSI tail pipes to the diesel 2.0 TDI .If you look at your exhaust ends you will see that they just have pieces over the inners with a little weld tack to keep them in place. Remove these (VERY EASY TO DO) and the FSI ones will fit straight on. These new ones are retained by a couple of screws.
    Audi part No ZGB8P0071902 They are about £34 +vat.There was a thread on a nother site but i can't find it at the mo
    I'll keep looking.

    Has anyone fitted chrome tailpipes to a standard 2.0 TDI Sport ?

    Looking at the pics on here and on another post they all seem to be on an S-Line or a bodykit that isnt standard.

    I've never quite understood this deleting your reg thing but go along with it anyway....

    People can see your reg as you drive along so where's the difference?
    There's no extra info on here that i.d.s the car any further than the reg?

    Exactly - unless you're a celebrity and you don't want people to know where you live!

    You should get rid of that dealer sticker - they really pi## me off. First thing I did before signing for the car was open the boot and pull off the sticker infront of the man from the garage. I said if they want to arrange an advertising deal with me i'd be happy to discuss a monthly fee.

    Why should they block my view with free advertising and, like yours, not even put it on straight!!!

    They make a killing on the car/servicing, advertise on the plates and still want more!

    Bah Humbug! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/soap.gif

    Looking good mate!!

    Be careful posting reg numbers, when I sold our ML270cdi on ebay I left the number on show for just a day, and I got loads of parking tickets and CC fines through within a few days.
    They don't really want to copy plates of a car that is local in case they bump into each other.

    Eeef, thank you. your a gentleman.

    The piano black finish on the doors is startingto grow on me and I actually prefer the shift as it looks more like a manual and less like an auto.
