Just found one of the brackets on the centre silencer has come away(causing knocking noise on pull away). The car is a 2003 model(160,000miles) and still on original exhaust. Is that a good innings for an exhaust???

Ordered new centre & rear + mounting rubbers & clamps for approx. 180 inc del(3rd of the price kwikfit wanted to charge!!)

It's not fun trying to get the old exhaust off, managed eventually to get the front to middle joiner off, but there isn't one between the middle & rear(must have built the car around the exhaust Mad )

Update: All fitted(had to use angle grinder to cut pipe between middle & rear sections). Was defiantly the original exhaust as all of it inc rubber mounts have the Audi logo & date stamped 2003. Bet the new one doesn't last as long Wink
