Sweet, I thinking about doing a 3" stainless steel with resonator and HKS Carbon Ti muffler. Curious to see what others have done. What are you thinking of doing?

Yeah, I know it is. How many SDM exhausts have you seen? Haven't seen anyone else with a custom or after market exhaust I have liked yet. You know VST is a Japan company so I don't see why that would be a big deal. I'm not sure if I'll go with the carbon or just the regular. The carbon might be too much for the car.

There are quite a few threads on this. <p>Look in the FAQ and use the google search. <p>

I know you didn't indicate one way or another, but if it's not mandrel bent -- don't do it.<p>-Eric

Nice. How does it sound? Also, did you modify the rear skirt or is that something you bought?

i think it is much better to have a custom job only if u REALLY TRUST the people working on the car. when i had my res removed i was able to talk to the guy doing the job before he started to work. i also stood next to him the whole time to make sure everything was perfect. i even got to drive it up the lift.

Geez it's a freakin muffler that you can barely see. You guys don't have to get all butt hurt about it. I've seen much worse stuff on some of the R's in this forum anyway.

Re: I'm having a custom exhaust done on the R (dubrizo)

Here are quick and dirty photos. Sorry my car and the tips are dirty due to the rain. I am really happy with the fabrication of the cut out. The shop rolled the body kit to match the other side. I am also impressed with the quality of the exhaust work. <p>2.5 inch pipes to dual magnaflow mufflers. (not pictured)<p><br><IMG SRC="http://creativevideogroup.smugmug.com/photos/475890223_HDDbj-L.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://creativevideogroup.smugmug.com/photos/475892456_gKvrE-L.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://creativevideogroup.smugmug.com/photos/475902640_juGZQ-L.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>With the dual magnaflow mufflers (not pictured) it is the perfect setup. The sound is perfect (great burble, not annoying) cabin resonance is way down from the straight pipes pictured.<p>I will take updated pics with them clean when I am back in The States.<p>-Marty

Re: I'm having a custom exhaust done on the R (SHOlover)

i have to say i like the stock exhaust (looks wise) so i'll probably end up going with TME. someone put together a group buy <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>...and normally don't like this look on the R, as too many other cars have it these days <p>but damn, thats hot <br><IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">
