    Hi,

    Just bought a 1998 A3 1.8 T sport and am looking to chance the exhaust to something wich looks better and sounds better. Ive got the chance of buying an s3 exhaust at good money, will it fit my a3 1.8 t sport? i know the engines are basically the same but im not certain it will fit. Also will it make any performance/ noise difference to the standard one ive got if it will fit?

    Cheers
    Sam
