Anybody here have the full APR RSC for a 2.0T? It's either that or the 42DD for my next purchase...
I'd really like to hear the difference.

I recieved my weekned waitng response from borla hoping to have a little better insight as to a set up in which i would like to go, dual split exhaust, and i was hoping borla would have a good response as to how i could custom one using their exhaust and what muffler is recommended but i got a one line, overheating blah blah buy this one out of the box, that is what i would recommend. I mean i watch velocity channel and there has been so much stuff on borla muffs for shelby and i had on on my old mkiii so i want to go that route but come on. If you dont want to point me in the right direction maybe another company will help. I dont want out of the box. I am modding my bumper to fit a dual and love the borla sound.
Suggestions anyone have a good outcome on a custom exhaust? sorry for the rant.
Hey guys, I was considering upgrading the exhaust on my 2.5L Jetta, but I don't know which one to pick. I want one that is relatively quiet, but has a nice sound for whenever i choose to get up there in the RPMs. Based on what I looked at on forums and youtube, AWE tuning seems to fit the bill. I saw on their youtube videos that they have a Touring as well as Track edition exhaust, but when I go on their website, I can only choose one exhaust.
Has anyone found an exhaust for the Jetta that doesn't rub on the rear axle if you're lowered? I'm underniet my car one every month or so trying to twist and push it around to make it fit and there just doesn't seem to be a solution. I have the 42DD 3" which rattled in the beginning but I heat wrapped it which silenced it for a bit but now we've chewed through the wrap and there really just isn't enough room over that axle for this 3" pipe. Anyone run into this issue with their GLI/Wolfies running 3" pipe

when i first noticed the issue i asked but no one had any insight and i didnt know enough to root cause the issue. you can see here the offending location and my bootleg fix to stop the rattling sound. i pinched down the sides of the heat shield (?) so it wouldn't move and tied it down with stretch wrap. pretty shxtty looking but it worked.
since then i have removed the stretch wrap used 3m tape to act as a buffer between the two surfaces and it works much better + nothing dangling below the car. i think the right fix is like Kidversion said. If I look at my car from the rear, I can tell that the tips aren't level. I'm guessing you have the same issue, and i believe anyone that doesn't have it up in the correct position will experience the rattling. i also noticed that stuffing the 3m tape in there helped rotate it closer to where it should be. i just have to wait for better weather to get under the car and figure out what to adjust to level it out. it's not so much raising the exhaust straight up, as rotating the rear section. with the way that the pipe is angled it will raise it up off the beam.
There's a little bit of rice in all of us.
Has anyone had any issues with the full APR RSC system rattling sometimes? Mine when it gets up to operating and there is high ambient temp will rattle under throttle between 1500 and around 2500 and when I shift manually with the DSG if I give it a little beans. It also did it pretty regularly last week when it was hot out sitting still just revving it to around 2k RPM. I know there is clearance issues with the Jetta sometimes but have searched and didnt find anything for GTIs?
Im really hoping its not something internal and its just a heat shield rattle. Anyone had experience with APR warranty?
yes we brought it up a few posts up but no one had any feedback. my post above with a pic will be jetta/gli specific though. but after fixing that all it did was move the rattle to another location. i plan on having apr re-fit it eventually, i just need to make it to a show that they offer free installs. i'm not driving all the way to alabama just for that. it is pretty annoying that no shop locally seems to think they can get it to work (i've been told multiple times that it rattles because 3in exhausts can't fit on our cars).

So it seems it may be just a fitment issue. Ill have to get my tech to look at it again. It is awfully close in some areas.
Mine sounds like a thin piece of metal rattling, how about yours?
Update: Turns out mine is internal. Probably an RSC baffle has let go...
