      Hmmm, I'll have to check that out (maybe I'll jut look at it ).

      Not saying you need to do the quad exhaust, but everything to the y-pipe is the same. After the y-pipe you can add pipping and tips and should get a similar sound. Just wanted the link to provide an example of what you're looking to do will sound like.

      I believe I found a single, center inlet, offset outlet Borla for around $80. Should be able to clamp that to the stock pipes and change that tone up a lot more.

      You'd be saving a lot of money going with a custom y-pipe and off the shelf tips. Instead of that one you were looking at.

      Wow, I need to keep looking at mufflers then. I was looking at Magnaflow earlier.

      Well, I don't have too many muffler places aroung me that will make a stainless y pipe for about $100 (I know a EuroJet dealer). I haven't been able to find a y pipe that is the correct size (2.25" pipe with two tips that are 8" apart from center).

      Doesn't need to be stainless unless you're going to use the pipe, itself as the tips. Even then, you could put the stock tips on it, then paint the rest black.

      If you really don't care about the y-pipe, you could have the muffler shop just make you one. Shouldn't be too much extra since you're already there. Try to work with them.

      I'm gonna grab a y-pipe off ebay then have my muffler shop mod it as needed. Doesn't need to look pretty behind the bumper.

      I disagree. Don't ask why, but eventually, not looking pretty can turn into problems.

      But I had no idea that Summit had that good of prices. Thanks for that info.

      Yeah, man. I was pretty surprised myself.

      Good luck! Can't wait to see the outcome.

      Haha. Almost 40k now. The wife racks on the miles. Going to be getting all the stuff to do the 40k service soon and then sending it in for the DSG service.

      You get the pipe on yet?

      Quick shot from yesterday. The car is filthy but we came out from the movies and I couldn't resist the opportunity.

      Not all the time though. But it is loud. Leave that on and take the muffler off. Haha.

      Sorry...I always forget. Of course, you can see my Facebook photos.

      I don't know the name of the wheel (been trying to find it) but it is a 17" x 7.5", et 50something. I should have got the specs when I had them off. I got all four, with TPMS, for $100. Threw on her old GTI snow tires (225/45R17 General Altimax Arctic). If it helps, these are the wheels I had on the GLI for a week. The silver five spoke.

      Couldn't pass it up. Best $100 spent. I took forever to get them on. So far, a mild winter. I hate the way all this sidewall feels.
