APR Cast Down-Pipes for the FWD 1.8T/2.0T Gen 3 (non-MQB)

Posted on February 16, 2015 – 10:00 am

Upgrading the restrictive factory down-pipe with the APR cast down-pipe exhaust system is a great way to increase performance and add a sophisticated growl to the exhaust note of the FWD 1.8T/2.0T Gen 3 (non-MQB) platform.

Will need to spend more time behind the wheel in order to provide some feedback from a driver’s standpoint but from outside, this GTI is sounding great!
