Default What exhaust should I go with?

I have a 97 1.8T a4 and Im looking to get an exhaust system that makes it sound more powerful. I don't want it to sound like most civics. And I don't want it to be too quite but not too loud. What exhaust should I go with?

You should research. Magnaflow and Borla seem to be the popular choices.

If Milltek does an exhaust for your A4, you should check them out. The quality is top notch, and some Audi dealerships even sell them and warranty them.

You are looking at probably 800-1100 depending where you get it. Great exhaust though. I just noticed, you live a few miles north of me!!! I'm in Mill Creek.

i fixed the problem today and it didnt cost much so i still want an exhaust. i like the sound of the magnaflow 14815 with the resonator removed but most people swap out the catalytic converter with a test pipe but im moving to a place that has emission testing so i cant get a test pipe. are there performance catalytic converters? i dont want to buy a system, just the catalytic converter.

Dude, theres no reason to spend a **** ton of money on an exhaust. im building mine as we speak. So far ive got a flomaster muffler that i found on Craigslist. Cost me half of what it would have new. Now i just need a resonator and a trip to the shop and ive got a sick set up for under $200. Thats with the homie hook up for labor charge though. Take your time and piece it together yourself. Or you could shell out $1000..
