Really? Is yours 3"?

Mine is 2.5" and its barely louder than stock and I do mean barely. Doing the resonator delete on the Mk5 made more noise than this catback.

I'm working on a before/after video. Ran into some technical difficulties.

Word. I think it's a 3. Whatever the MF comes with. But yeah. A little loud. I may go back and just get tips welded on to the stock one.

Anyone know what these holes could have been for? Does anyone else have them? Is it something the PO did?

Those holes are from previous owner. Not normal.
