      Those sound the best. Very similar to a g37 note. But hey, to each his own.

      That's what I'm running. It sounds pretty good. I love it.

      This sounds pretty good. I love this. May I ask a price?

      Oh it don't matter. There are only a handfull of 2.5L owners that aren't broke and the majority will continue to read this hoping for a cheap upgrade or exhaust note that sounds like we're boss. If we had money we would have gotten an R.

      Welcome to the forums, please leave you purse at the door.

      Don't post something and expect everything you get in return to be positive. You subject yourself to criticism the moment you put something online, for all to see, whether good or bad. Get over it, its just the forums anyways. If you get bothered by someone stating an opinion, you should leave the tex forums and go to some other less serious forum.

      i think my exhaust sounds pretty decent.the set up is a eurojet catback paired with SRI and upgraded mounts. makes it sound nice and throaty with a litlle gargle when you let off the pedal.
      i took a few videos last night and this morning, but its hard to hear with my camera, video needs to be played at full volume, i need a go pro to give my car some justice lol.

      im surprised thygreyt has not posted in here. his jetta sounds mean as hell also

      I'll 2nd the suckiness of GoPro Audio.
      Currently I'm bone stock & broke, but I did buy a GTI muffler & rear valance.
      The plan is to ditch the stock muffler at some point down the road & replace it with something sportier. Maybe just add a Borla muffler to the stock GTI setup.

      For serious owners who would rather buy a R instead of a car that makes since.

      But before we tear apart this thread like one lonely customer is trying to do, Nice work on the MK6 Golf. Sounds very good, but military pay is military pay and it looks I'll have to wait for anything like that. Haha. I personally like my setup and plan on keeping it for a while.

      You make it WAY too easy to mess with you. Try going in to any other forum on here and posting what you did...My response is mild in comparison and I never said ANYTHING bad about anyone. I won't call someone out like that unless what they are doing is truely stupid.

      Get over yourself, I wasnt disagreeing with anyones opinion, and I am definitely not lonely customer. What ever that is...

      And claiming military pay isnt enough is BS, just gotta learn how to manage it. Been doing it for 5 years with no problems.

      Here is my current setup. HEP/United Motorsports SRI....stock downpipe and cat with an APR GTi 3" catback

      I think it sounds great. Real throaty like a nice vr6 exhaust and sort of unrefined like an old school air cooled. The thing i don't like, and Kholer may agree, it's too loud even at partial throttle. No more sneaking around. Even though you can hear the exhaust inside the car, it doesn't have a death drone thankfully. If I keep this exhaust, the car seriously needs about 200 more hp to back up that sound...plus I think the car is slower with it

      No vids but got a full 3" stainless steel custom exhaust, 3"downpipe no res, magnaflo catback. pretty damn pricey for custom work but worth it. Anyone in the GTA willing to film it so i finally get a vid? LOL.

      Very good article, sir. I love how people still -- to this day -- do the 'washer mod'. Esentially -- they create deliberate exhaust leaks for the goal of noise only.

      Personally -- I would only stick with the 2.5" from factory -- in and out -- and not d!ck with it.

      ((Correction: Factory is 2.25" -- 2.5" is maximum that I would not exceed))

      My setup
      Engine -> OBX Headers (ceramic coated) -> 2.5 midpipe (no cat) -> AWE (Helmholtz) resonator -> AWE (Helmholtz) resonator -> AWE (Helmholtz) muffler.

      I have the AWE Touring edition cat-back for the MKVI 2.5's. Dual resonator, single muffler.

      pretty sure my rabbit didn't come with 2.5" from the factory...I thought it was 2.25"

      I was wrong -- it is 2.25" -- all I know is that from past experience and knowledge -- 2.5+ was unwise/un-necessary for an NA motor, especially of lesser cylinders.
