      FWIW, "backfire" probably wasn't the right word, but anyone who's driven a DSG TTS knows what I mean. Word on the UK TT forum was that the RS with DSG sounded even more awesome on upshifts. I imagine this is even more pronounced with a louder exhaust.

      The manual doesn't have the same type of sound on shifts.

      Aside from the "experience" of the DSG that I described above, we all are proud of the potential performance of our cars. When someone asks you about your car, don't you tout all of it's virtues?

      "Yeah, it's got 360hp and is all wheel drive. It's got 370mm Brembo brakes. Zero to 60 is 4.1." No one here boasts about this stuff (in good taste, of course)? Come on.

      Anyway, people would always ask me about the DSG on the TTS with that "It's an automatic?!!!" attitude. I was (and still am) proud to explain that it's a paddle actuated manual that is better than the 6 speed manual. Now, my friends are like "I'm glad you finally got a manual", but I tell them the DSG was better.

      Disgusting is right. God I love that clip.

      Anyone know where in San Diego (or closest to SD) I can order Miltek exhaust?...and a reputable place to have it installed.

      These guys are nearby and are carrying the cat-bypass pipes so they can probably get the full milltek system.

      Thanks, yeah saw those guys. A little far but might be a fun 7 hour road trip or if I ordered from them and had them ship to me that would be ideal. Just need to find a good place that works on Audis in SD or LA.

      Classic. Exactly. that's why I don't understand what the "plus" is all about...a few extra HP? Big deal. Surpass that in a heartbeat with ecu and exhaust tune.
