There have been many threads regarding different exhausts for the MkV platform. This is going to be a comprehensive list of the most common exhaust systems. Also, feel free to leave a picture of your vehicle with details on your exhaust brand.

If I am missing something, feel free to PM me and I will add it to this thread.

Please, refrain from quoting full images and videos. Image quotes tend to clutter a thread.

*Disclaimer*

- Most of the products listed as 2.0T are for FSI motors. Please check what is needed for your vehicle before making any purchases.

First one is an easy launch, followed by aggressive throttle.

These two are WOT fly bys.


This one is an everyday easy take off.

And finally a low rpm everyday easy roll by.

My car(GTI) is heard over the GLI which has a catted/resonated dp to full stock catback.

its perfectly nice when you want to hear it, and quiet when you dont.


this is what happens when you try to make a fun vid with bald tires, wet floor and ESP on.


just some "fast" or loud city driving.

You're forgetting Autotech. They use magnaflow mufflers.
Added. Thanks.

how bout the GHL exhaust?
Added. Thanks.

Should start adding sound clips to the first post.
Most of the links on that site that you gave me are broken. But some work so that link is added. Keep in mind that some of the sites, like APR and AWE, already have media links on their pages. :thumbup:

You forgot the Driver Gear Votex Sport Exhaust ;)
Semi-added. Finding an actual link for the product is near impossible. Contacting a dealer will be the best bet. I added a link to a dealer locator. :thumbup:

Neuspeed catback for the 2.5
Added. Thanks.
