available from LLTek exclusively.
Does your pre-facelift
(1998-2001) A6 (2.8, 2.7T, 4.2) suffer from tailpipe neglect? Well, suffer no
more as LLTek has the perfect fix for early A6 (C5) cars that have tailpipes
directed to the road instead of through the rear bumper like their upgraded
facelift cousins. Now you can have the same look. It's easy, it's fast, it's
not expensive and the results are cool.
Here is how it works and here is what you
Kits for 2.8 and 2.7T are identical. 4.2 kits use different components but the
end look is the same. These twin kits are pure bolt-on, once the old downward
facing tailpipe has been trimmed down. If, however you elect a quad version of
the tailpipe upgrade, LLTek recommends the primary support pipe be welded to
the muffler stub due to the extra weight of the inboard extra tips.

1. Cut off the existing pipe tips on your car where the pipe starts to
turn downtowards the road, leaving as much straight pipe as possible to become
the kit mounting stub. Your exit stub when cut should be about ¾ of an
inch. You need this straight length to mount and attach the new bolt-on
extension and tips.
2. Attach the LLTek supplied extension pipe and visually line it up
with the new bumper exit point as if this were the actual tailpipe. Using a
drill, bore a small ½ inch hole in the rear bumper in the center of the
pipe or as close to the center as you can estimate. This hole is your visual
3. Looking through the hole, recheck and realign the exit pipe if
4. Make the alignment hole larger and larger, but always reference the
extension pipe to ensure it's positioned correctly. You will need a dremel or
similar device to enlarge the opening.
5. Once the opening is large enough, install the special new
tips on the extension pipe on a trial basis and adjust the protrusion length of
the tip to your taste. Ensure there is bumper clearance of about ¾ to 1
inch around the tip in relation to the bumper edge. Remove the tip.
6. Install the supplied smooth edge trim material to give the rough
edges a smooth, professional look. Reinstall the tip and adjust.
