How do you like the Awe Catback?
With being Stage 2 and on the stock clutch (didnt read anywhere of you updating it), no slippage?

Sexy car.

Much approved!

Car is DSG , no need to upgrade.


The AWE catback is a bit loud being as it deleted the entire suitcase. Probably not so bad if not linked to 3inch downpipe.

When i say loud i mean some drone at 2k and obnoxious cold starts.

The adjustable tips are awesome, would recommend overall

Awesome thread man, sub'd!

I love my super pro end links. 20k miles of driving and not a peep from them.

Just a fair warning; I installed superpro front endlinks no more than 10k miles ago and the boots are shot. No noises yet, but big bummer I'm going to need to replace them eventually. And sorry I was too late to see that and post sooner.

No biggie.
Car will see maybe 6k miles a year?


Vehicle is not daily driven (shame cause would love to buy windshield banner that says it is)

I got a great price on them too , was worth ditching the triple square design which has been a huge hassle.
