    Damn, I can't find the Golf R pictures anymore.. I will share pictures of what I did:

    upload_2020-1-22_11-28-28.jpeg upload_2020-1-22_11-28-46.jpeg upload_2020-1-22_11-29-21.jpeg upload_2020-1-22_11-29-48.jpeg upload_2020-1-22_11-30-17.jpeg upload_2020-1-22_11-30-49.jpeg upload_2020-1-22_11-31-12.jpeg

    Maybe these will help someone :)

    At this point I have not noticed any drone. In Cupra/Sport mode lots of pops & bangs. Comfort mode is little bit louder than before, but not much. Motorway speeds 90 - 130 km/h nice and quiet. Comfort mode also "disables" pops & bangs, which is quite nice if you live in little quiet area.

    Yes, it should look like that. Maybe @S4BiT can confirm this?

    You call that clean! Those exhaust tail pipes are filthy! Only joking, looks great. Looking to fit Golf R back boxes next month.

    One question guys. So....if an R estate exhaust is valid for our st's in terms of clamps and dimensions.....the Akrapovic model available from the Golf will fit ours too??? Even in our +19 GPF ST/R versions???

    Regards.

    TBH, the guy that cleans my car could not do better than that - there is a lot of baked carbon.
    Whoever owned the donor car probably never cleaned them.
    When I have time and patience at home I will give them another go, but you should have seen what they looked like!

    As far as i'm concerned is an aftermarket option directly from VW dealers. AK doesn't sell it directly to customers. AK was stock Exhaust in the 7.5 Golf R Performance Package. I believe both 5dr & State versions.

    Finally, I hope for a similar line as a friend, home made in stainless steel by a local supplier. I just get back the car, need to wait to try it on long way, if needed, I will add short muffler.
    link from a video from the guy who made it

    Pictures can be sent if you want

    Hi Norbert,
    could you please describe what does "bit loud" means? You mean loud outside or inside?
    Do you have middle resonator or just Cat -> GPF -> back boxes?

    I'm going to fit the R exhaust to my Octavia RS with GPF, so it think will be pretty much the same result like in GPF equipped Cupra.

    Thanks,
    Robert

    Mine gpf car so no mid box fitted.Exhaust sound much deeper and louder too.just enough loud too me.Shame no exhaust valve fitted because sometimes i want less noise after long day.Plus side when system warm up properly good dsg farts and another banging follow in sport or cupra.

    Thanks Norbert!
    What about motorway speeds? No drone inside? Much louder than before?
