Anyone else had the "gunshots" yet? 😁

I just have the standard exhaust. I was out for a drive with my better half. Nicely up to temp so put it in Race. Tried a couple of manual downshifts  - BANG 💥 - they were like rifle shots! Wife and I just grinned at each other 😋

Nothing as loud as this with the 2 MK7's I had.

I’ve had a few cracks in Race mode with the Akra which was amusing and made me giggle like a child. 😁

Yeah had quite a few once warm 🙌🏻😂

 

I have done a video of the exhaust whilst the car is stationary for my friends son who is a petrol head. It’s very entertaining.

 

I would post it but trying to edit the reg would make my head hurt 😂

I'm really surprised at the stock exhaust, only had it a couple of days but it's caught me off guard a few times.

 

A beautiful quiet evening yesterday, birds tweeting then I 'accidentally' did this when pulling into the drive like a complete hooligan 😂

Speaking of stock exhausts - the MK8's look different to before. I'm sure they are thicker rimmed and don't extend as far back as the 7? Is this just the angle?

And the 7:

The MK8 has new tips. They do have a thicker edge.

They do look to be shorter than the mk7 tips too.

Interesting that the MK7 tips from your photos @Booth11 look like pipe goes down then to the side. Where in the MK8 (stock exhaust) it goes up then to the side. Maybe that change required a shorter "thick" part of the pipe. Or actually the distance from the end of tip to when the pipe bends upwards is now shorter compared the 7 where the distance was longer before the pipe tilted down.

 

Are your Akras the same or do they extend further in?

 

I'm clearly looking into this too much :D

The Akra tips are short like the standard mk8 ones.

That’s what forums are for, overthinking things with like minded people. 😁
