It actually sounds quite good although would be perfect if the valves were able to quieten it when needed.
Need a video of the Remus now

Yeah exactly what I thought it be perfect it valves were working.

Just watching  football will do remus vids later 👍

Trouble is some would listen to that and say its too loud, others would say its too quiet. I think it sounds just right...

I do really like it and sounds great in sports mode but i do a lot of short journey and it was bit too much sometimes as no valves to quieten it down.  May have to go stage 2 and gpf delete if i want valves and noise

I’d definitely ring Tom Walker @ Retro Resus  who makes custom systems as well as fitting APR and Remus to name a few.

He says you can adapt the APR system to fit OPF cars. 
 

The one on mine be it 2015-16 sounds amazing and very unique compared to most. A real deep bark With valves open almost RS2000 Escort  rally spec!

Don’t suppose you have a sound clip?
I know it’s not gpf but just for comparison

Just been speaking someone who has fitted a non gpf quicksilver exhaust to his gpf car with no problems and sounds really nice.

Thanks for uploading mate. How was the drone with the remus?

 

I see what you mean it's not quite as loud as you'd expect although I suppose its a lot down to personal preference what the right amount of noise is to you. First vid sounds great with the DSG fart, are those a lot more prominent with the remus, or how does that compare to stock/custom system? 

 

I went for a drive this afternoon and found I could get a good DSG fart by accelerating hard (5k+ RPM) in first gear and shifting to second. Sadly any gear shift thats not from first to second is much less prominent, even if I take it to redline, not sure why though.

To be honest i can hardly here the remus exhaust at all inside the car. Maybe its because ive become used to how loud the custom one was and was expecting more from the remus.

TBH I've not heard of them before but I'm seeing them getting discussed and recommended on social media more and more.

 

Anyone have any info about them? Seems like a great valved solution.

Those videos look good but i'm pretty sure they're on pre GPF cars. I haven't been able to find any videos of their exhaust system on GPF fitted golf R's, so not sure how good they would sound.
