    looking in to getting myself a TIP, but most i've seen say only for the 225bhp engine, but my APY is 210bhp so is the a tip for me? :p

    or do you make the others fit?

    also which are best? i hear bill makes a good 3" but dont know much about it, and i've seen the autobahn one on ebay which is a cheap one for £60ish

    210 and 225 both have K04 and are basically the same, so if it fits a 225 it'll fit a 210

    i thought that, because of the same turbo like you say, and same MAF i think too?
    but i read someone say one the autobahn tip thread that it requires some editing to fit, and i didn't want a bodge that doesn't fit right

    Best bet would be to ask someone like Welly who has an APY. Mines an AMK not sure what the differences are though.

    From what I've read, you won't find an aftermarket TIP for a non-esp engine (early APY's are non-esp).

    You can however modify the after market TIP's that are made for esp engines to fit a non-esp engine.

    Here's a thread that describes fitting a TIP to a non-esp engine http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/a3-s3-forum-8l-chassis/106624-apy-tip-fitting.html#post1095655

    There is a thread from Dani_B19 somewhere with pictures describing this, some searching should find it.

    thanks for that, but as mine has ESP will it just be like fitting a normal 225 tip?

    Yep, that is my understanding, once your engine has ESP, then it will be a direct fit.
