    Twin exhaust on a TDI, who's done this?

    I've just got an S4 rear diffuser for my A4 avant. I was just wondering who else has fitted a twin exhaust with a diesel and if they removed any silencers or cat internals? Also what do folks think of the exhausts on the new A6 and A7s as I was thinking of going for something like that?
