  2. GTI / GTI PP / R

    We've just driven from the lakes along the a684 earlier today, must've just missed you!, very enjoyable drive ,one of my favourite roads. The R was fantastic and the exhaust has started to make a nice noise now, Dsg in manual mode is an enjoyable experience.

  6. Hi, just washed the car and noticed that the inner exhausts were clean but the outers were filthy. It got me thinking as I thought the car has been very quiet from new, almost no dsg farts and no pops like other owners have had. Is it possible the valves in the exhaust aren't working, and is there a way to test this? I've had it with the engine in race, in individual mostly, it's a 7.5. thanks
