There was a period when Audi exhaust prices were ridiculous and just
about every exhaust fitted was after-market.  Four of the cars at last
night's meeting had fater-market exhausts, and none of the owners were
happy with the noise they made.  We had a quick listening test and
vote - my car came top.  Graham Caddy's 20V (which still has the cats
in) was pronounced too muted, and the WRs slightly too harsh.  The
other MB wasn't running too well.  None of the after-market exhausts
actually sounded like an Audi I5.
