I just bought my 99' Audi 2.8....thank you..thank you...(bows for applause)

The guy i bought it from was an audi mechanic and he told me it had an Audi Performance exhaust on it[confused]? I'm new to Audi's so WTF do i know right? We put it on a rack and he showed me the system...it all says audi on it. So, i didn't think twice about it, and to add to that the car only had 50K on it. I wanted the car bad.

Now i have the car and i love it.[drive] But i've yet to find an "Audi Performance Exhaust" any where. I'd like to know more about it because it's making a weird clicking sound and i want to fix that. I took it to a muffler guy and he says its not a baffle or anything it's just the exhaust.

I'm not believing that Audi would make a name brand exhaust for their cars that clicks when cold or at high rpm.

Does anyone know what this is and can tell me what i can do to adjust or fix?

thanks in advance.

only thing i could think it would be is this:

link (http://www.audipartssuperstore.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=22_136_159&products_id=436)

which, imo, is WAY over priced for just a muffler. and for that reason i dont think anyone on here has it.
and it used to be sold on audi's "audi collection" site, but they have changed the site and it is no longer there.

edit: and after doing a bit of snooping around on google, it seems that audi contracts Vibrant Performance to make the "sport" mufflers.

From what I’ve seen when they mention Audi Performance Exhaust for B5, is just a Remus rear muffler only.

Ok, will do. There's a pic in my gallery that shows the tips. I'll have to find a way to take a pic of the piping.

lie on the ground and take a picture.

from what i can see, it just looks like your car has the Audi chrome exhaust tips(actually an option, others came with non-chrome ones).

Yeah, that's the tips. It really sounds like poo.. when I first start her up and hit the gas in 1st it cackles like stupid. I can't believe someone would use these...$800 bucks down the drain.

I'll be taking if off...so if anyone wants it. Let me know and I'll sell it.

If it's just tips...why so loud? stock mufflers don't sound like mine. I'll get some pics and post ASAP. I'd really like to find out WTF it is so i can get rid of the clicking[wrench].

And the asked for movie.[wrench] It might take around a minute to load. 56k don't even bother.

The movie isn't great because it was done with my digital camera, i don't have a video camera. Also, I had to do it by myself so the picture sucks, but if you listen to the video for a few seconds after i take off you can hear the ever present cackle.

Did you listen to the movie?

Stock exhaust doesn't sound like that unless somethings wrong with it.

Could be. Like i said I have very little knowledge of Audi's right now...i will be learning more.

I just don't believe stock exhaust sounds like that for a 99' 2.8 Quattro...

Maybe a TAP (total audi performance) do they even make exhausts

I had bought a vibrant performance, a company audi sells aftermarket parts through which are included in the OEM warranty. anyway that was just the muffler and it made this god awful high pitch whistle noise every time i got about 5krpm. again this was on a 98 2.8 30v. I have not heard the clip of this exhast yet, and the muffler doesnt look like the one i purchased. to this day i still dont know what that noise was from..

There's a link by the pictures if you want to hear it...after about 8-10 seconds I start accelerating and then you can hear the click.

Thats an S4 exhaust. Get the p/n off the exhaust and i bet you will find out its oem S4 one.

looks stock(and has a part number to back that up), but as said above^^^ it could be an S4 exhaust.
but it doesnt sound stock(much deeper than a stock 1.8T exhaust, atleast.)

my only possible guesses as to the weird sound is that maybe an exhaust leak or a testpipe maybe? those are just guesses, though.

i hope it is...that would be cool[:D]. Is the P/N on the muffler?

I'm going to try and find a audi specialist in the Springs here. Does anyone know of a great mechanic[wrench] in COLORADO SPRINGS?

Well, this car is a 2.8 30v Quattro. That would suck if this was a leak or something because i've taken this car to a muffler shop and they said nothing. I'm in need of a specialist.

If it's an S4 exhaust, how does that add to my HP/Torque gains? Any one know? I know this car is 192hp stock. I'm adding a K&N 57i Intake and it apparently has an S4 exhaust. That should bring my up around 200hp right?

Sweet..thanks for the help gents i really appreciate the comments.

4Ring...i see your in Denver. Ever meet with a group? I'd like to start if there are any.

Yea, check out/register at Metrodubs.com we are a pretty big Audi/VW group in Denver. Weekly GTG's on Saturday, Tuesday, and Wednesday; and usually a large monthly all Euro GTG. The Saturday GTG's are pretty fun and usually have a good turn out of at least 15 people(at the park-n-ride at 55th and Wads.), then there has also been a GTG right after that(first is at 6pm, second is a 8pm) at the conoco at the pepsi center. i dont know if that will continue because last week the cops kicked them out(first time in 4 years apperantly. i think it was because the conoco was completely filled with dubs and audis.)

And a more local club for you is Edition 719(edition719.com)

Are you going to Dubs Along The Rockies car show this sunday(August 26)? It is at the Citadel Mall in Colorado Springs. It is one of the biggest shows(if not the biggest) in Colorado. I think there are way more than 600 cars usually. Hope to see you there. :)

oh, and i dont know about shops in the springs, but in denver ive heard good things about RS Motorsports, Avalon Motorsports(under the new ownership), and 3zero3 Motorsports. and from personal experience(and word of mouth) Autobahn Premier Service is great(they installed my exhaust)!
