Just rang Audi Bolton for my 2nd year inspection/oil change and they quoted me £382 inc VAT. After reading this post I gave Awesome GTI a call (they're based right next to me so that was lucky!) and they've quoted me £185 inc VAT. Booked in for Weds - cheers mate :P
I paid £70 to have a straight pipe fabricated and fitted (with sleeves, not weld).
4 months on and still loving it. Does drone when slow accelerating on mway between 2.5-3.5k revs - doesn't bother me too much.
Just an update. What can I say.. best £70 I've ever spent tbh. It sounds absolutely brilliant. The DSG farts are much lower and it crackles and pops much more. Anyone considering this, get it done! Haven't experienced any drone but I had much louder exhausts on my previous cars so probably...
I'm interested in doing this to mine. Can anyone recommend a place in the North West (Manchester pref)? I've heard of the powervalve anti-drone pipe but is it really worth the extra spondules? Had a full turbo back on my old Astra VXR so don't think my ears will be sensitive to drone?
