    Cheers man.

    If you look the downward pipes are only tips welded on, or they are on mine atleast.

    so i will buy that then just get under with an angle grinder and chop the welds off..

    i supplyed the tips i got them from halfords it was £55 for the complete job including the tips ive got a 1.6 so it had a sinlge exhaust and wanted a twin to fill the votex rear diffeuser i got so got a single into a twin maybe cheaper if they are just fitting tips onto your existing exhaust but no guarantees tho

    Not level mate take it back. wish i seen this earlier, there is a thread somewhere on here with quite alot of pics and fitting guide, people bought them off ebay for super cheap like £13 and they fit the diesel tips very well and look very oem. i have them in mine and look great once levelled up.

    Found them :AUDI A2 A3 A4 A6 S4 S6 STAINLESS MUFFLER TIP NEW Pair on eBay (end time 03-Apr-11 21:02:43 BST)

    they dont look very good! but can tell you they look spot on in person.

    I just went to my local powerflow dealer, he charged me £40 for these 2 fitted. They are just about perfect IMO

    Is it much of a job to get the downward facing ones off?

    Tracked down a power flow dealer near me in Newport so may take it to them to sort,

    Lee R ~ did they supply the tips for you too?

    cheers

    Powerflow dealers should stock a huge number of pipes buy yeah £40 included the pipes. Mine actually have powerflow engraved into them but i asked him to put them on upside down so nobody can see them!!

    Looks nice Lee. There is a powerflow near my area.
    Hopefully be about same price you paid, seems nice and cheap.
    Mine is a downwards pipe, would that be a problem?

    As the first post i bought the two official audi ones off ebay, they cost me £50 mind and £20 to get fitted so £70 in total.

    However they do look awesome when on, i will get pictures up at the weekend.

    I belive you get what you pay for!....Unfortunately
