    Not keen at all on the diesel, black twin exhaust which is angled to the ground. But finding it hard to find a nice stanless twin system for the 2.0 TDI range??? Not bothered about increase in performance talk etc....just to make the back end look a little nicer!!! Any suggestions?

    That black exhaust is soot covered stainless steel, (it is on mine,) and a few minutes with a good chrome cleaner brings it up nice and shiny. Not as good as chrome, though. :sadlike:

    I just hate that it is angled downwards rather than pointing straight out :/

    Do what I am doing this Wednesday, just get the backbox replaced with a straight pipe and a tip of your choice welded on the end. Won't cost you more than £100 and looks miles better and gives you a bit of sound too.

    Or do what alot of us have done and grind off the angled part and fit stainless steel exhaust tips on. Will cost you about £5 for the tips and the work will take about 15 minutes.
    The angled part is just a tip that has been welded on so it's fairly straight forward to grind off!

    Or do as above. I could also do that with mine, but decided to ditch the backbox to get a bit more sound when accelerating.
