Help, my car is very sick!

  2005 Audi A3 3.2 Quattro

I was driving along at about 120km/h and there was a very loud pop and the car lost a lot of power. Also it sounds like there is no exhaust attached to the car.

What could be wrong? Do you think it would be safe to limp to a garage on monday?

Thanks guys

is there an exhaust on the car ?...........maybe it fell off, or part of it, if ur experiencin a loss of power its probably near the front at the engine side of things if its an exhaust problem

Well I managed to get a good look under the car this morning.

Spotted a rather large hole right under the passenger foot well (which would explain why the gf thought Id driven over something cos she felt a bump)

My theory. Was driving along, and a baffle was loose in the silencer, broke loose, and due to the pressure blocked up the exhaust which caused a build up of pressure and BANG, the exhaust exploded.

Gonna get it checked out tomorrow
