      Confused, by dealers you mean VW or local tuning shop? I didn't even know this existed, and for that price it really can't be beat. Any thoughts on where I should look in the mid-atlantic region?

      Edit: I'm an idiot/noob, didn't know it was a dealer brand. Called my local dealer, none in stock, tons in the warehouse though all showing that price. Thanks for the post, got myself a shiny new x-mas present haha.

      Huh, I wonder how big the piping is on these exhausts.

      Great price for a very nice OEM+ exhaust.

      is the Votex Exhaust you're referring to the same as the OEM VW Sport Exhaust found on the ECS website below? if so it sounds really good. the only question i have is that the part numbers of slightly different:

      Yours: 1KM-071-901-U
      ECS: 1K0-071-901-U

      When i pull up both parts on genuinevwaudiparts.com yours comes up as $220, and the ECS number comes up as $1,195.

      Clicky Click

      Nope, this is definitely for the Jetta 2.5

      http://www.ecstuning.com/Volkswagen-...Back/ES323048/

      But it's a lot cheaper if you call your local VW dealer and have them order one and pick it up.

      Order from ECS and get socked with a high shipping charge.

      ECS just dropped their prices.
      According to a part's person at a VW dealer, VW is dropping this exhaust in order to make room for the mK6 line. Makes sense.

      So am I to assume this WILL NOT work with the MK6? Didn't think the mk5 and mk6 were that much different, if at all. Would love to pull the trigger on this, any idea how long this sale will be going?

      Sounds completely worth it if it is a 2.5" exhaust like ECS says in the description.

      Where did you see that? It just says its for the 2.5 not its 2.5". I found it as cheap as $186+ shipping with a Google search, the only question is, whats the piping diameter? If it is 2.5" I'm buying one it'll be a nice upgrade over stock, seems like its just a SS replica of the stock one tho

      I just got one. I bought it from this place in AZ:
      http://www.peoriavw.com/?http://www.fastvwparts.com
      They have it for 165 plus shipping. They are nice guys. Talk to Dawny. They have 2 left, that is because I bought one . Tell him Eli bought an exhaust from you this morning, and he sent me.

      That is a darn good price on this thing.

      Installed mine today. Perfect install... Slightly larger than oe... Had to use an R32 sleeve clamp on the rear muffler bend section, the fit is perfect and the sound is awesome. No drone inside the car at any speed. Doing a drive by it sounds similar to the awe setup. Incredible pricing...

      I will post a video tomorrow. Buy this now before they sell out.

      damn i really wish this was for the Rabbit. the best deal anyone's had on the Rabbit/Golf 2.5l sport exhaust was ECS at about $400 earlier this year. they sold out quickly though.

      Isn't the exhaust the same? When I got the instructions for my TT Dual Borla, the only difference in install instructions was that the Jetta exhaust had to be cut off if memory serves.

      Awesome, so probably stock is 2" and this one is 2.25".

      yeah, on the ECS website they have one for the golf that used to be $400 but it sold out and that was that. the only sport exhaust i've found at the super low price is for the jetta 2.5, not the golf/rabbit.

      Ordered mine from the local dealership this morning. Parts guy said it should be in on wed. I can't wait. This sale really made my exhaust choice easy. I was going back and forth between awe and magnaflow but at this price how can you say no. It actually came out cheaper paying the sale price plus tax at my local dealer rather than paying shipping from one that was selling a little cheaper.
      Any vids to hold me over till I get this thing on?

      No kidding I could buy 2 of these and still have money left as opposed to the next cheapest option. Plus I wasn't looking for anything too loud and this looks like it'll fit the bill.
