Default What part is this?

I just bought my 01.5 A4Qtip. It appears to have an exhaust leak coming from a part in the exhaust. I looked at it with a flashlight and have narrowed it down to a cross braided donut looking object directly under where the gearshift would be under the car. I'm not sure what it is, but i can actually see the leak/hole in that part. If this doesnt help I can possible take some pictures.

flex pipe... bring it to an exhaust shop and they should throw a new one in pretty cheap.

just make sure you get a catback system if you do or else you'll still have that broken flex pipe as its part of your downpipe...
