    Hi All,

    I have had my Audi S3 for a year now and its been a pleasure. For the future however I would like to get a new exhaust system and stage 1 remap.

    I do not have mechanical experience and would need someone to fit the system.

    So what exhaust system should I opt for? I know there are various options, my budget would be about £1500.

    am I right in saying I get the remap done after the exhaust system is fitted?

    Any decent local places in the midlands for exhaust systems?

    thanks

    I have read that thread before.

    Maybe my question is what type of exhaust type should I go for and what are the implications. I.e resonated/cat back etc, what are the differences?

    Cat back milltek on my car non res non valved. Didn't see the point in valves as I kept mine open on the standard exhaust.

    Sound fantastic on load and was only £1300

    Roughly how long (many miles) should the original exhaust last?

    No idea, I have only done 9000 miles in the car after a year and a half.

    Sounds pretty good mate, does that price include fitting? plenty of pops and bangs with that system?

    No just cost to buy. Fitting is a 1 hour job on axle stands. It's just nuts and bolts. A ramp would be a load better, but that's all I had. The old exhaust comes off as a complete unit. 2 man job really, but I persevered and got it off and the new one on.

    Also depends if you are talking cat back or turbo back system.

    From turbo back your looming at either a sports cat or no cat with a downpipe. Not really suited to a standard car. Cars with stage 1 and 2 especially benifit from turbo back.
