Once you swap the rear bumper to the Golf R bumper you are able to run a Golf R exhaust. The GTI bumper doesnt have the cutouts for the Golf R exhaust. So once you get the R bumper it is possible to run the exhaust. I believe it is only possible to run the catback of the R though and not a full TBE. But someone with more knowledge should be along shortly.

I have a golf r exhaust and center outlet lip that fits gti bumper for sale. Uni golf r exhaust with a cutout.

You would need to change the gas tank to an awd tank

Not completely true there
You can run the Golf R rear muffler section, that's it....which would require some cutting & welding.

The exhaust routing on the cat-back is completely different on the GTI from the Golf R

So...you'd want a R32 style exhaust for a GTI...something like this:

or
https://www.ecstuning.com/b-milltek-.../ssxvw169~mll/
or

I think EuroJet used to offer one back in the day too, for the GTI

Thanks for chiming in. I couldn't remember 100% on what could fit or not.
