Model - 8V / 3 door
This Audi S3 performance exhaust is made in 3"/76.2mm pipework and fit from the catalytic converter section backwards (Cat-back) these exhausts replace the centre and rear sections.
This sports exhaust is sold for motorsport and off road use only and will NOT be able to pass a UK MOT emissions test or police road side checks. This exhaust is also available as a high flow sports catalyst version, which will pass these checks.
This resonated sports exhaust includes the centre silencer and has a subtle but sporty tone. This exhaust is also available as a non-resonated version (excluding the centre silencer) which is a louder option.
All relevant fittings and gaskets are supplied.
Note - The fitted images only show the resonated cat-back system.
Please Note - This performance exhaust removes the use of exhaust valves. When switching drive modes (e.g. Comfort to Dynamic mode) your exhaust tone will not change from quieter to louder as before. Using a Non-Valved exhaust will not harm the running of your vehicle, you will simply not have exhaust sound options, however the Cobra Sport exhaust has been designed with this in mind.
COBRA SPORT REVIEW
Cars of the calibre of Audi’s S3 require more careful consideration prior to development of a performance enhancing exhaust system. Both Cobra Sport’s Technical and R&D teams were involved in the planning and preparation that went into the product testing and development of this new system to ensure that the correct balance was achieved between aesthetics and power to make the most of the S3’s 2.0 TFSi engine.
The Cobra Sport system delivers significant power increases, but its glory has to be in the weight saving achieved. Swapping the Cat-back system results in a staggering 30% reduction in weight from the OE system’s 26.9kg, with the Cobra Sport alternative weighing in at 18.8kg on like for like components.
You can be assured of only the highest quality materials being used in the production of all Cobra Sports exhaust systems with the highest quality grade 304 stainless steel used throughout the components and each exhaust being hand finished and individually TIG welded at our Sheffield factory. The levels of quality achieved enables us to offer a lifetime guarantee on all exhaust systems which provides the ultimate piece of mind for the customer.
The Cobra Sport’s quad exit system benefits from angled 88.9mm tailpipes which can be finished in either matt black or original highly polished stainless steel. The end result of this attention to detail, is an ultra-lightweight system which compliments the S3’s body styling and sporting pedigree while delivering enhanced performance and handling capabilities.
