I have an '03 s3 and I want to show off the swing arm. I am currently running a TOR low mount exhaust and was wondering what the consequences would be if I simply took the can off. Actually, there is a piece of pipe that I will leave on (that connnects to the header-about 12inches in length) just beneath my foot, but I want to take off the entire carbon fiber bit. A good friend of mine who has/rebuilds old muscle cars says it shouldn't do anything to the bike or its performance. Another friend says he thinks it may be bad for the bike. Anyone know for sure?
