    Sounds like you need to change your car soon man :)
    I have seen a couple of A3 with quad pipes, most where 2.0T & 3.2's but there's a dude on fourtitude with a 1.6 with them.... and it looks pretty good but it's obviously for show only.

    I'd leave it alone and remap/ miltek back box instead. That should give your car a new lease of life!

    TBH it is down to personal pref & also the design cause abt one is ***** but the bastuck one is actually not bad as its has slashed cuts of the pipes so they sit back from eachother if you get me, it does look ok & depending on what your intentions are for your car I wouldnt mind trying that one out

    4 pipes on a TDI = many a weekend on your hands and knees with a tube of Autosol!

    I like the tailpipes on the Bastuck one much better actually :yes: As for my intentions for the car, I dunno. I have a sweet little image in my head of how it would look with a bunch of subtle but effective mods, but I just don't know if I can be arsed tbh. I'll get on top of the servicing (Audi service intervals are a joke, it's as if they want your car to break) and hopefully it'll stay reliable, this may well end up as her car so I'm reluctant to slam it, pull the rear wiper off, LCR splitter, etc

    :shrug:

    Its not as difficult as you may think. I think the addition of extra zorsts is something that shouldnt be entered into lightly though:

    First, select the perfect recipient:

    Centralisation is key:

    Alignment is critical!:

    Utilise OEM parts where necessary:

    Inspect the final product for fitting:

    i think it could look quite nice, some 19's wider arches put on, will be like the rs4 just in hatchback.

    that saxo is really bad, some people have no idea with how to tune a car, the exhausts arent even nice, nor are they level!

    LMAOOOOO @ Saxoooooo.

    On the 4 exhaust note thing - i think 4 exhausts is too over the top for an A3 - it looks good on other cars but defo not a derv A3.

    Yeh they look alright they do :yes: I know 4 pipes isn't exactly subtle, but subtle is what I want. I know it won't look pants if I do everything I want to it, I'm just not sure I want to go down the modification road, I'm more interested at the moment in getting something old, RWD, fixing it up a bit, and having fun in the twisties :racer:

    Theoretical mod list outside:
    De-badged apart from black Audi rings (and I'd keep the 1 s-line jobbie in the grille)
    Rear wiper gone
    LCR splitter
    Black wheel centres
    50 drop
    Spacers
    Folding mirrors
    Dark headlights/fogs/repeaters and '09 rears
    Basically standardish, but a bit more "murdered-out" and purposeful. What would also look schweeet I reckon, if I wanted to bung some cash at it, is US-spec tailgate and front number plate holder, and short plates.
    Not even thinking about arch flares and 19" 911 Turbo wheels, oh no :whistle2:

    Inside is pretty much pimp from factory, maybe some S3 pedals/footrest/shifter action, and give the entertainment some attention. Seems a shame to have that big telly in the middle and it doesn't do anything apart from tell me where to go. Screens in the back perhaps?

    Oily bits, well an engine and DSG remap would do, it's pretty much fast enough for what it is. Springs and ARBs might help with the **** handling :huh:

    i can imagine it suiting sportback much more cos the tail lights are thinner and longer making it look wider at back!

    That's one of the reasons I like the Sportback more - it looks like a squished version of a larger Avant model, so if it looks a bit like a squished RS4 Avant, without looking like some childish Max Powerist's project, it can't be that bad, right? :huh:

    Doesn't look that great on a 3 door to be honest, they need to be done differently. Boydies, for example, is an excellent 3 door

    "SQUISHED RS4" (bloody caps!) yes pls... was one my visions when I bought the car... hence the username and half decent attempt at a rep grill :lmfao:

    I'd love to see a RS type sportback, and as the model has not 'yet' been released it makes the car unique. Make sure you get add a mesh grill to that list :) lol!!

    Mmm, oettinger tastiness :drool:
    I wanted Oettinger to remap the car (I just wanted the sticker, how much of a tart am I) but was slightly put off by the fact it cost nearly a grand :wacko:
