I was wondering about this.. I need to wait so the car is off choke when it's cold, then I can select a different drive mode and the flaps open (flaps.. That word makes me chuckle lol). Sometimes the * button doesn't work for changing modes, even when the car is warm, anyone else get this?

I see from your signature that your car is de restricted already. Do you know if you have plenty of pops/bangs with having this done? Reason I ask is that I met a guy recently in Belfast with a brand new saloon. HE went in to Audi after and got his de restricted and he told me that it transformed his sports exhaust noise. He said that it was now similar to his PFL RS3 .

Hmm I'm not sure the top speed de-restriction gives more pops, bangs or noise with the sports exhaust, the only time I really get really noticeable ones is down-shifting in manual and S mode, plus the shotgun bangs when up-shifting on full chat and some pops on overrun. It is surprising how loud the exhaust is though as I sometimes don't really notice it, I love having the window down slightly whilst driving through a built up area or even better, a tunnel lol. Think i'm gonna go down the MRC Stage 1 route later in the year as I read this makes it sound even better and gets rid of the start up clatter

Thanks for the update on this. I'm like a child with a big toy. I also go around with windows down and roof open just to hear the exhaust!! Would like my sports exhaust to give a few more decibels even though I already have the electronic valves disconnected.

Let me know if you go down the MRC route and if it adds to the noise !! Might do likewise.....

You might want to visit Paul at PCW. Now mine has coked up a bit you get some mighty bangs out of it. Not like the PFL pop pop pop - this is bang BANG!!  People were screaming in Edgware High Street on Friday when it dropped a particularly loud one - it even made me jump. Between the shock and the laughter I nearly stacked it.

So, what could Paul do to make this happen?

He opens up the back box and welds a pipe across without properly sealing the weld. Also takes all of the sound insulation off the resonators and seals up the holes with a clamped piece of thin aluminium.

 

It is a bargain at £300. Makes a big difference. I posted a thread on it with a link to his Facebook video back in October time.

Thanks for the info. I doubt it will be a tad difficult as I live in Belfast.

Just send him the exhaust. That’s what I did.

Thanks, I could do that for sure. I already have the sports exhaust tho so maybe I will have less in the way of increased sound. What do you think? Are you also happy with the result and what does it do to the sound?
Thanks

I have the sports exhaust - it makes a real difference. You get the occasional pops from 4/3 and 3/2 this turns that into more frequent explosions. In any event, it is louder all of the time anyway.
