    I would recommend you getting a custom exhaust from Longlife. Ive got the toyosports decat and downpipe with a custom 2.5inch catback system from longlife and it sounds very nice. Pops and bangs on the overrun nicely :arco:

    how much are you looking to spend? what are your long term power goals / limits, and how how loud to you want it to be mate?

    I took a gamble on an ebay exhaust system just over a year ago now, I paid £220 shipped for a full TURBO back 3'' exhaust. it included the downpipe, decat, and full 3'' cat back exhaust system with two boxes. the fit is absolutely perfect and the quality seems very good, it also sounds great and isn't that loud at all.

    VW Golf GTi Jetta MK4 99-04 1.8L 3" Turbo Back Exhaust Catback 1.8T w/ Downpipe | eBay

    STAINLESS CAT TURBO BACK EXHAUST 3" TIP MUFFLER 99-05 VW JETTA/GOLF 1.8T MK 4 IV | eBay

    SINGLE 3" MUFFLER TIP CATBACK/CAT BACK FULL EXHAUST VW GOLF 1.8T/1.8L TURBO MK4 | eBay


    All the same product, all similar cost, stuipdly stupidly cheap for what you get.

    the S3 brakes will fit yours Kev, although you'll need a 6mm carrier spacer if you want to fit the rears as well. The S3 front shocks and springs will fit but the rears are totally different.

    A3 shares it's exhaust fitment with the mk4 golf mainly, although parts can be interchangable from leons, FWD TT's, and octavias too but tailpipe lengths differ on some
