About to buy a couple exhaust clamps and wondering which size is necessary. They range from 50-60mm.

Both the 50mm and the 60mm fit.
However, with the 60mm you will have more clamping surface, so less leakage.
Dont over torque thoses bolt, or you will bend the pipe. And use some gasket maker to seal completely around the clamp.
Best possible sound.

Stupid/Noob Question. Is the measurement for the circumference of the pipe? Im guessing it is. Also, if the 50mm and 60mm both fit, wouldn't I get the 50mm so it would be tighter?

I don't know how accurate this information is, but I was once told that the 50mm is for the b5a4 2.8, the 55mm is for the b5 s4, and the 60mm is for the a6 2.8.

I was assuming you where talking about the length of the exhaust clamp, not the diameter of the pipe.
Take the 60mm. I currently have 1 50mm and 1 60mm. The 60mm didn't needed sealant to fix the small leak (the clamp alone doesn't do a perfect job).
