Hi fellas, I'm new here and new to Audi's - go easy on me! Just bought an Audi A6 1.8T and the flexi part of the down pipe is blowing. The garage have tried to remove it but ran out of time as I had an appointment to get to. I am now wandering if I can get a decat/ manifold/ exhaust combo as the stock exhaust seems quite restrictive - will i benefit from this? Is this a good idea or do we just pursue the removal of the standard down pipe and replace with stock parts? Is there a trick to getting this part off easily? Thanks in advance.
