    Downpipe or Exhaust?

    Downpipe with a vibrant bottle resonator on stock catback honestly sounds good enough, i've said this before on other threads, but i sort of regret swapping that resonator and stock CB combo for a non resonated 2.75" exhaust, just doesnt have that beefier sound across all revs, milltek only...

    Exhaust Ideas

    I have the 2.75" non reso milltek catback paired with APR DP, it is quieter than having the stock catback with vibrant resonator...i prefer the sound of the latter but alas, i disposed of it when i swapped over for the better looking exhaust, still sounds decent enough.

    SOLVED: APR Stage 2 MK6 GTI - VCDS Set Readiness Status Counter Stuck

    Damn, this sounds like a pain indeed! United Kingdom has a car MOT yearly and can pass as long as have at least a cat in the exhast, the people with de-cat will have to pray the testers are de-cat friendly or it will fail.
