      Here are pictures of our Cayman Tips, they show the difference between the two finishes the best:

      We engineered a Downpipe uniquely for the CC 2.0T.

      In addition to the German made HJS catalyst, we also incorporate a larger resonator section than our GTI 2.0T Downpipe. We did this in order to help better control sound volume during part throttle driving.

      Love the sound and the diamond black tips. Not sure about the price difference between them though.....

      I will be getting them shortly once I convince the mrs of the lie that it will improve my gas mileage, or just not tell her although when the box shows up at the door and I'm at work that'll be a hard one to fib about. I'm taking her on vacation tomorrow so maybe I will break it to her then when she is in a good mood

      You, sir, are my new idol. Im going to get it either way just might catch some slack for it. Worst case scenario she doesn't talk to me for a day or two, guess I could think of worse things. Heck she should be happy my CC saves me $350 each month compared to the old car.

      So I gotta ask...

      If I know I am going to APR K04 or Stage III...how does all this plug and play or are you competing with the APR stuff?

      if this is a dumb question, sorry.

      But your dp seems a bit smaller and my guess is the APR downpipe and your exhaust are not compatible?

      Do you have a cat-less and test pipe (non-resonated DP)?

      Sounds awesome. I usually hate aftermarket exhausts but this is understated yet sporty and the tips are exactly what I've been looking for. I'm on the order list!

      If it helps your 'fib,' which it isn't. I drove up to AWE... 24 mpg average, drove back 30 mpg average...

      Sounds awesome, However $800 bones for a DP?? Costs more than the whole exhaust system. Don't get me wrong you designed this and stuff but in todays economy it's going to be hard to drop that kind of coin for your DP when there's other on the market that can be had for a lower price point.

      Hardware is always compatible with other hardware. Sometimes you need some bigger and better tools, but hardware is hardware.

      As for software, I can't speak for the tuners, but I don't they they have micro-chip identification built into either software or the hardware. Sure its possible that a system built as one and tuned as such will perform better than one that is not, but I don't know how much sleep its worth worrying over.

      I am no expert in this stuff, so do your own DD. In the mean-time, my motto is "bolt the stuff on, get the tune and mash the gas pedal."

      I disagree, only because I've heard a CC with a MK6 DP compared to mine. The difference is whether you want your CC to sound aggressive all the time or only under acceleration.


      Now before you go all 'fan boy flaming' on me. While I did get a decent discount on my AWE parts, I did shell out a decent chunk of change for my parts/install. In fact, more than 75% of what the average American makes per month.

      Also, it's Labor Day weekend... Can't expect the guys at AWE to work 24/7 can you?!

      Now before you go all 'fan boy flaming' on me. While I did get a decent discount on my AWE parts, I did shell out a decent chunk of change for my parts/install. In fact, more than 75% of what the average American makes per month.

      Not the point, the point is the DP is over priced and has nothing to do with sound comparisons.

      We all have to shell out a decent chunk of change for parts/labor but I don't think anyone cares that you spent more than 75% of what the average American makes per month!

      These questions were submitted way before the holiday weekend.

      Also the sound loud vs quite... Still $800 for a DP is way over priced, Lets break down the price a little bit here... A piece of stainless piping lets say $100(high side), cat $75, labor to weld flanges and etc..at $85 a hr $170 so lets add all this up....Total price = $345 .. I would think a better price point for this DP should be around the $500 range.. How many DP you think they are going to sell at the asking price of $800???
