      Ditto. I think they'll show the R some love though. They said they will release for "many popular vehicles."

      I mean, you can expect it to be the same price as miltek and awe, but certainly will be high quality.

      Apr has a pretty tainted history with exhausts and the rsc debacle, hopefully with the new manufacturer they do a better job.

      I'm curious as well. Heard their RSC on a B8.5 S5 and it sounded phenomenal.

      Apr was caught advertising rsc as an advanced noise cancelling technology for drone. It was all bs and there was normal muffler filling material when some people cut their mufflers open.

      Basically they were charging money for tech that was fake.

      The scandal killed the line of exhausts and severed apr from Corsa as I remember it(which could be incorrect)

      It was b8 s4/s5 stuff that caused the issue.

      Wow this explains why I could never find it when I was cross shopping B8.5 S4s and 5s with the R. Only YouTube videos.

      i'm pretty sure they learned their lesson, expecting this to be a knock out of the park like the rest of the mk7 parts they have created

      The APR response only made them look worse. They clearly feel entitled to rip people off. They are a shady marketing company first, everything else is secondary.

      You could always recognize the APR Billy boat exhausts on the b6/B7 A4 because every single one of them ended up sagging horribly in the same exact way. Was never corrected on APR or BB's end, unsurprisingly.

      The billyboat downpipe I had on this car was literally the worst fitting piece of crap I've ever seen, and I had to return two of them for warped vbands before I even found out that the fitment was crap.

      The tubing was much thinner than both the Revo and apr downpipes I had after.

      The only reason I wasnt just toally out of 700 bucks ish was that the vendor I bought from was great. Billy boat was totally unhelpful and I'm pretty sure the vendor took the hit.

      My shop said they have fitted 5+ billyboat pieces that customers brought to them in the past year or two, every single one of them fit wrong, rattled and/or leaked.

      Woah that's a lot of examples . I can see why some people are hating on apr if they went through that.
