Is it the downpipe and do you have a Golf R? If so 300 is on the cheap end of correct pricing. The driveshaft has to be dropped to get in there and it's still a really difficult job

Oh shit. I didn't realize how old tgus thread was lol. And when I posted my reply it was on the top of the list so I have no idea why or how it got bumped.
Drive it like you stole it / Maintain it like you own it

ROFL... I can install my own exhaust in my driveway in under an hour. The worst part is jacking the damn car up, and slipping the stems from the rubber hangers. Use some lithium grease and they're not that tough, though.

I could do a full exhaust install in likely 2hours without a lift. With a lift, less than that. It's so easy.
