Hello Audizine!

I recently bought a 2001 A4 1.8TQM (AWM block) Avant and was planning on swapping over the Borla Exhaust from my 1999.5 A4 1.8TQM (AEB block) Sedan.
I am still a noob so I am sorry if this is a stupid question.

Is the Exhaust fitment exactly the same on both chassis? Will I run in to any routing problems switching them?

The Borla exhaust was installed by the previous owner and when I checked the website it just labels it as b5A4 Exhaust 1997-2001

I am assuming it should be fine? I am taking both cars in tomorrow and figured I will ask here just in case.

I think the only differences are for FWD vs Quattro and Manual vs. Auto transmissions.
