Glad, I’m just doing a downpipe ans keeping my stock mufflers on. Not impressed with the noise at all, sorry bub. I thought it would of sounded meaner. But sounds like one of this old school pink flubber toys that makes the fart sounds lol.

I removed the mufflers from my A6, no difference in sound. But I still have the CAT and DPF in place. Muffler coming off the Touareg shortly.

I would put the mufflers back on. Sounds like some kid that thinks that kind of noise sounds cool. What mature individual wants their nice European car to sound like an old John Deer tractor at full throttle while spreading manure?

Geezo.... lots of negativity from the peanut squad. If you like it, commedeschatons, that's what really matters!

Did you happen to start with just the DPF off and kept the rest of the exhaust stock for a while? If so, I am really looking for a sound clip. Want to be sure my dpf delete won't be too loud. Thanks!

i don't mind the negative opinions, it really is an ugly sound tbh so i understand where people coming from. i personally love how stupid and unnecessary it is.

Unfortunately i do not have any sound mods with full stock catback, i went straight to this from completely stock setup
