      For anyone still interested here's the link for the cheapest I found on the internet http://www.vwdiscountparts.com/partl...catalogid=5496, ask for MikeP and he will give you an exact shipping quote so you know since the website just gives a generic quote that isn't accurate.

      Installed mine this week and it's a phenomenal deal....a bit louder than stock and a bit more mean sounding and you can't beat the look

      Have you guys had any issues with the clamp needed modification to install this? On the thread in the Jetta V section a few guys have had to "oval" the holes on the clamp and use longer bolts. Have you guys had to do this as well? or has it been ok to use as is?

      I know that the bolts included are not the proper length, I have seen multiple reports of people having to go to Lowes or somewhere and pick up longer length bolts.. As far as the clamp goes, not sure.. That is my car on the lift in the Jetta V section, and I trust Cory (Make it Rain) as he is a VW Tech and I am sure that widening the holes on the stock clamp was necessary for a proper fit and install.

      Were you able to use the supplied clamp with no modification?

      That's what I am curious of, I know my locals parts guy at the dealer said that some of the exhausts had some clamp issues so he reordered mine, I am kind of hoping that mine goes on without any issues. I am still waiting for my clamp to come in though so I am patiently (more like impatiently ) waiting so I can get this on.

      there is only 1 supplied clamp; that one, the muffler shop used it in connecting the first and the second muffler. No modification was necessary

      Put mine on this morning as the dealer finally had the new clamp that they re-ordered. Sounds great and not that hard to put on, only took about an hour for 2 of us with basic tools and the car up on stands.

      bought a used one in october when a new was still around $900 +shipping.
      i paid $400 for a used one FML!
      ..was a good deal at the time, not like $200 tho.

      i love the sound when mated with the test pipe, but dont expect much noise from the cat-back alone. im thinking of welding a section of stainless pipe in place of the mid muffler to put it over the top.

      anyway, cheers guys. enjoy the good deal!

      Found one this morning at a dealer in Fall River, MA. He assured me it will fit a 2011 JSW (someone raised the ? earlier) and that the clamp I needed was in the box. He said all that's left is dealer stock and the next closest one would be Hartford. At least I can go pick this up and save a bundle on shipping. He was selling it for $219 plus tax. Does anyone know if there are any other products necessary for the install, sealers, lubes, etc.? Thanks

      The clamp may be small for the exhaust. You need to find some longer bolts and open up the holes that the bolts slide through on the clamp. This should allow for the larger exhaust. Or just have it professionally welded. GL

      I assume this is the clamp that attaches the new exhaust to the cat? Also, any measurement on the longer bolts mentioned for the hanger. Just trying to get as much info as possible before getting the car on the jack stands.

      You re use the OE clamp that attaches the new exhaust to the cat. It's actually the clamp that holds the two piece exhaust together. You need something like 3 or 3.5 inch bolts. I never used mine due to the fact that I had mine welded.

      If you are getting it at Mattie's that is where i got mine. The parts guy there was good and got me the correct clamp to make this thing work. Are you local to there?

      Yeah I'm getting it at Mattie's. The parts guy, Brian, said it would have the clamp I needed so I guess he knows the issues already. I'm about 60 miles away in Peabody.

      Thanks again to the OP, got mine on last week, also installed my ECS pulley and HPA mount insert. The difference with everything on is incredible and compliments my SRI and TP nicely. The system isn't overly loud, I do get a bit of mid-rpm drone but I'm ok with it for short trips. Will be driving on the highway this weekend, hoping that at cruise 70-75 it's tolerable. If not I'm going to look into some sound deadening mats for the trunk because I really don't want to mess with the exhaust at all.

      So ive been getting conflicting information about this. Is it 2.5" or 2.25"? On many of the other threads people are saying its 2.5" and the clamps are too small that came with the kit. Can someone clarify?


      EDIT: i went and measured mine...def 2.5" for anyone else that was wondering.

      Looking to sell mine (off my 2012 sport wagon). ~600kms on it. came dealer-installed. looking for a stock exhaust in trade.

      PM me for details.

    21. 09-03-2012 11:30 PM #91
      I'm looking at buying one of these exhaust systems (1KM-071-901-U) from a dealer who still has one, but they won't confirm that it will fit anything past 2010. Did you in fact get it installed on an '11? If so, I'm figuring it will fit my 2012 2.5 manual.

      thanks

      Local dealer found me one in Madison and had it shipped here to Minneapolis for around $250 shipped!

      Came with the larger 68.5mm clamp. The stock hardware on the clamp was cheap stainless so I ditched it in favor of some zinc plated 10.9 hardware with a split washer on the bolt end and a serrated nut on the other end. Torqued it to 40lb-ft so its not coming loose.

      I just got mine ordered from a dealer in FL for $255 shipped. Can't wait to get it.

      Just an FYI, they said that Auto Barn in IL had one too...not sure where that is, but they should have one in stock.

      Stupid question but what is that very first part in this image? I'm talking about the "muffler" closest to the camera...is that the catalytic converter? I don't remember mine having 3 "mufflers".

      Ah got it, thanks

      Do any of you with this exhaust have leaky clamps? The one that came with the kit, doesn't seem to be holding air in pretty well, when I start the car cold I can hear it leak, also the tone has changed, especially around 1500rpm and 3000rpm. If I don't end up swapping back to stock, I'll end up having it welded so it's nice and tight.

      Discovered this a few weeks ago. Found out they will honor my 1 year warranty. So I have to take off the exhaust and return it and they will give me my money back.

      Mine did exactly the same thing. Except I was told by NorthPenn VW that it comes with a lifetime warranty. A couple months ago I showed my local VW tech and he said to bring in my receipt and they'll replace it for free. I was going to wait until spring, but if it is only a year warranty I only have a week left!
