I'm sure viriiguy will reply with his view, but I also have the EST exhaust, so I'll give you my view. I like the look and the quality and the sound is a fair improvement over stock, and virtually zero drone. It is a relatively quiet exhaust, so if you're going for "race me" loud, you should either get another exhaust or delete one of the mufflers on the EST.

Re: (greekone)

It's been on only 24 hours, but I like it so far. I bolted right up with no problems or banging pipes. I hate "U" clamps, but other than that it's all top notch stuff. It doesn't drone, but it does have a bit of a rumble sound in the 2k rpm range. Very nice, I think.

Haven't had time for much but I did notice that my power steering is starting to hum when turning at very slow speeds. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Kevin - your wagon does look sharp <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Thanks, Chris. I've finally made peace with the fact that it's an automatic. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Nice work. I love free even though I am not a student/unemployed. Why didn't the junkyard charge you for them?

Re: (pelicanflyt)

friends own and opperate it. if i do have to pay they say "how much you wanna pay?" then i come back with either nothing or if its something typically costly ill say 25$. they were like yea idk what they are but they are yours now so enjoy and enjoy i did and my wallet thanks me. that and they might feel bad for me because a week ago i had to drop off my 95 cherokee all lifted up an mud tires ect ect but although it ran like a champ and still got 20mpg it had frame rot. so i left with a sad face and only 188$ in my pocket<BR><BR>

In the last week I've...<p>1. Replaced my CVVT Actuator Solenoid (No more CEL that we've had forever!).<p>2. Fixed tailgate by getting new clips and putting silicone around the whole thing. Very quiet now! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><p>3. Today, I'm going to take car for a wash, come home and wax the crap out of it!

Hope you're going to wash it again after you drive home or you'll be waxing all the road dirt, fall out and other crap into your paint. <br>If you haven't had the chance to do it in a while/ever, it's always worth using a clay bar before waxing. You will be very happy with the result!

Re: (Chilled Man)

hha i wouldnt mind brake squeel vs what i had to drive today. outa boredom i saw a 93 850 GLT haha and it only had 86k on it so i figured give it a look. couple dingers and what not but it didnt look to bad nothing i couldnt fix. took it for a spin... thought i was going to die when i had to brake. it was like a seizure throughout the whole car i was like wow. it was in okay condition but they wanted 3499 for it and i laughed when they offered an even trade for my S70 T5 haha

Re: (Big Will)

Car wash place is only a mile from home, so no chance to get too much dirt. I was too cheap to get the clay bar stuff this time, but I am still very impressed with Turtle Wax Ice. Stuff was super easy and quick to use, and car looks the best it's been in years! <p>Before the long drive back to school I'll give it a little more care!

Re: (ecbsykes)

What exactly did you do to replace the cvvt? I get an intermittent code for that and may have to do this repair in the future.
