New RS4 B7 Owner

Post by FrankyRS4 » Fri Nov 19, 2021 11:13 pm

Hi All,
Finally I get to drive the car of my dreams, a black 2007 RS4, well hopefully when it arrives.
It is stock standard with no modifications, however, I was after your advice as I would like to change the exhaust and see there are a multitude of after market exhausts, Milltek, JHM, Akrapovic etc.
Any suggestions, guidance, advice would be very much appreciated.

Welcome, hope you enjoy your new toy and it lives up to your dreams - it will!

There is loads of knowledge on this forum, and some great opinions to be had but the underlying factor is how subtle / loud / obvious you want the exhaust to sound.
I took mine through the A3 Liphook tunnel last week and my pal in another car said it sounded superb without being OTT.

Millteks are definitely a popular choice with a range of valved or unvalued options to suit.

Questions I would ask (myself) is if you are going to p*ss your neighbours off if you start up early morning or late at night with an aftermarket systems, as the car opens everything/revs a little high for 30-50 seconds until the cats start to warm up and this can be loud!

A couple of times I got not so subtle hints from neighbours when I have early starts with my short live RS5 with an ABT exchaust - my stock RS4 is just right IMO!!

Also would save yourself £1k+ by staying stock.
