Default Exhaust from Supersprint for Q7 3.0 TFSI

Hi guys

Came across the following exhaust system from Supersprint on their Europe web site.

AUDI Q7 3.0 TFSI V6 (280 Hp / 333 Hp) '09 ??, exhaust system

Contacted the Supersprint North America and they said it will not fit North America's Q7.

Does it make sense? What is the difference between the Euro Q7 and America's Q7 in terms of exhaust fittings?

Look like the 3.0T is ran out of exhaust options?

The only thing I can think of is if maybe the EU Q7 has a significantly different rear valance where the exhaust tips exit or if there is something different at the exhaust manifold + down pipes/cats for EU emissions regulations that results in slightly different plumbing geometry vs. the US model. I'm only speculating here, but this is what I would guesstimate is the reasoning. If it is only a rear valance issue, that is probably much easier to work around as you could probably source a euro rear valance (and maybe rear bumper cover if need be) to get it to all work. It wouldn't surprise me if you end up north of $5k to do this though.

I am new to forums and Audi... Does anyone have recommendations for a aftermarket exhaust for Q7 3.0 TDI preferably within the US?

Supersprint is UK based. Maybe it's not Euro vs US but UK vs US which might mean LHD vs RHD?

Just a guess.

Hi gang!
Any updates on a good aftermarket exhaust? I'm surprised that it's so hard to find an aftermarket exhaust. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

nobody wants to spend the money on a quality exhaust. any exhaust that is made to fit the 4.2L or the 3.0t is $2500-3200.

i have one on order but 6-8wk lead time. i will post once it arrives.
