'Exhaust'. Custom made or new Audi one??

13 posts in this topic

Hi all,

after having the seal replaced in the diff I got the delightful news that my exhaust is in a right sorry state:(. So what to do now. Should I get a genuine one from Audi or go for a custom made one. If I have one made who to go to and do I keep it discreet and hidden away behind the bumper or gave the tail pipe exposed and on view. If any of you have experience of this or can recommend someone to make it (preferably in the west mids area) let me know. Also let me know of who/what to steer away from!

Thanks

I'd fruit it up and talk to Milltek etc

Probably cheaper and better than OEM

Thanks for the advice scotty. Just rang birmingham Audi they want £1325.11 +VAT and an hour and a half labour to fit it ( @ £115 + VAT/ hour) no wonder they are called the stealers!!

that for full system from the cat back.

Miltek is the way to go, had one on my 4.2 V8. It made a great sound but not OTT - looking at around 800 quid.

Now you've got me missing my old S4 with Milltek again! Grrrrrr

If you can pop up to Mansfield, Shark is an authorised Miltek dealer, i'm sure he'll sort you out a good deal.

That sounds superb scotty. What did she sound like cruising on the motorway? As I don't want it loud when doing 70-80 mph.

Cheers tipex. How do I get hold of sharky?

I've always had a soft spot for Scotty's old S4.

It just ticked the box for a glorious engine note.

It was a lovely balance. You could use it around town and didn't sound like it was trying to be heard. Just a very slight subtle background rumble.

 

But step on it and the noise came through. Not too much though. Just enough :)
