    I fitted a very similar downpipe (one piece) to my A3 1.8T recently. Go for the two piece as the post cat lambda doesnt fit very well above the one piece and rubs on the heat shielding. I have a 1.9TDI centre section which is the same front end diameter as the standard centre section I think. The centre section slides inside the downpipe so it's not an amazing fit even with a clamp... mines blowing slightly so i'll tackle it again next weekend with plenty more exhaust paste...

    The bolts onto the turbo end of the pipe can be hard to undo, and sealing it properly can be tricky.. apart from that it's pretty simple! can do it in a day easily
