Review of 2.5" aluminized catback exhaust for A4 VW models (Jetta, Golf, New Beetle) with Borla muffler and visible exhaust tip (stainless versions are also available at additional cost w/Borla or Flowmaster muffler and hidden or visible tips).
System shipped in 3 pieces: front section w/resonator, Borla stainless steel muffler, tailpipe. 3 clamps with integral hangers are also included.
Ease of installation: Moderately easy. The most difficult part was cutting the stock system in order to remove it. TT system pieces are of high quality and fit well, although a couple of trial adjustments prior to final tightening were needed to keep system from contacting axle and underbody heat shields. Would have been easier for me if the car was on a lift; I had to do job with rear of car on jackstands.
Tone was definitely louder than stock (but stock system is almost silent), but still smooth and relatively stealthy.
Overall, still a quiet system while adding a few horsepower over very restrictive stock system. Also quite a few pounds lighter!
