  1. I’m running full Racingline OEM+ Stage 2 with a Scorpion cat downpipe an a Milltek resonated, valved exhaust. It runs just like stock in Eco but put it in Race and it’s frighteningly quick. I couldn’t be happier with it. If you’re using it as a daily driver and just booting it once in a while, I think it should last well and be as reliable as an unmodified car as long as it’s serviced regularly. The only change I’m likely to make in the future is to go full Stage 3.
  2. Mine had done 59k. It was in good nick, as they were mostly sensible speeds on motorways. It was coming out of warranty, and I went for a full Racingline OEM+ Stage 2 package, R600 air intake, intercooler, downpipe, etc. Was slightly worried myself but it’s fantastic. Dyno’d at 398 bhp. Very little difference during normal driving but crazy quick in Race. All I can say, is don’t worry. As long as it’s done right, you shouldn’t have any issues. Going in for a resonated, valved Milltek exhaust next week, so it makes the right noise in race but won’t deafen me other times.
  3. Thanks for all the posts and advice. In the end, I decided to go Milltek, valved and resonated. After driving around for a while, I realised that for normal commuting, driving to the shops, etc. I wouldn’t want anything much loader than I already have. Once lockdown’s over, I’ll be doing 4 - 5 hour motorway journeys and having something load all the time would be annoying. Hopefully it’ll make all the right noises when I put it in race. I could always go non-resonated if I find it too quiet but I doubt that.
  4. Yep, the non-resonated one sounded like it'd shake your car to pieces 😀. That's far too load for me.
  5. Thanks for the advice 😀. I should have really got the guys to upgrade the exhaust when they did the Stage 2 work. It was only when I got the car back and drove it for a few days that I realised I needed it to make a noise that matches the performance Stage 2 has given me. I was thinking that I'd get it installed when it goes back for it's next service but that's not really soon enough now.
  6. Thanks for the advice and I know I now have to get a much more sportier exhaust, so the sound matches the speed. How do you find the OEM+ Stage 2? I've nothing to compare it with, i.e. REVO or APR. All I do know is that it's completely transformed the car in the way I wanted it to. In Eco during normal driving it's perfect and I had worries I'd compromise it's ability to be my daily driver. In Race it's a monster. It's quicker than I thought it would be.
  7. I've just had a the full Racingline OEM+ Stage 2 package installed (ECU and DSG remap), intercooler, downpipe, etc. by the guys at Unit 82 Garage near Formby / Merseyside and couldn't be happier. It does exactly what is says on the tin. It behaves just like it did in Eco or Drive but putting it in Race turns it into an absolute beast - it feels like a completely different car. I couldn't be happier with the results. The stock exhaust is still pretty quiet, which is no bad thing for normal driving. I was thinking of a valved exhaust. I can do a lot of motorway miles, so don't want to much extra noise / drone. When putting my foot down in Race, I'd like it to sound proper sporty. What would you recommend?
