    Worse case (if your a bit handy) cant you just hacksaw off the pipe before the downward bend & put a trim on them?

    Supersprint Tail Pipe for Audi - larkspeed.com

    Not sure if that's something you want?


    if it was me id get the exhaust place to cut the originals down and use stainless tips. Had this done with my MG ZT 190. didn't take long at all. looked sweet

    Lads i want to remove the downward ones out and replace with stainless stail pipes but where can i get the identical pipes from which you would find on a 170 TDI A3?

    I'm not buying a new back box, scrub that idea @ £341!

    Anyone know?

    I have 2.0 tdi 2004 and I want a stainless steel tail pipe as well. My is facing downward so what is the idea to do this?replace the backbox?

    @aidenuk what is the reason that you dont want to replace the back box since it is even cheaper than the price you got quoted?

    I don't want to replace the back box, this is what i am saying, i want to cut the downward pipes off and weld some GENUINE 170 tailpipes in place.

    Thanks

    The company apparently does them for more than just the s-line model.

    OMG! £341???

    ok here is the solution...
    go get the droopy pipe ends cut off with an angle grinder and then replace with these: Audi Exhaust Muffler Tail Pipe Trim PP0008 | eBay

    Hell i cut off the backbox and replaced it with a straight pipe for only £80!

    Are those identical to the 170 pipes?

    My mate is going to remove the back box like you have, saw your video the other week, sounds well!

    Thanks

    Possibly so yes but would where would i get that from and would that come with the chrome 170 type tail pipes.

    I don't want something that looks like it's fresh out of Halfords if you get me, OEM is always my plan!

    Thanks
