I'm a broke college kid who wants a nicer audi (some people argue that i should be happy that i even have an audi, but what the hell do they know. lol) so onto my question. i wanted to have a muffler shop weld me up an exhaust, but i dont want to cut out the rear muffler. from what i've researched it drones out. will a universal muffler, ie. borla or magnaflow, work?

also any comments on the muffler cut outs?

A brand new exhaust system is like 700$ with a Borla muffler and downpipe 2.25" in SS

Thats what I have, I didn't get the sale price though.

It's an investment, but it's worth it. All stainless, and Borla has a pretty good warranty.

I just got my custom exhaust installed this past summer for a decent price, all 2.5" stainless piping, magnaflow center and rear muffler, with a tectonics downpipe. Nice sound for less than a prefabbed system...with mine installed!
