I am trying to find an exhaust for my car. Does any one have any suggestions? I'm looking at the Thermal R&D Cat-Back right now. Any comments on those exhausts? BTW..i got a 1.8T with Giac Chip...Thanks.
The reason im looking at them is cause i can get them for pretty cheap. Also, how much hp do you think it would give u extra. Thanks

Exhaust for 1.8t can be rated at 20+ hp gain.
Thermal r&d is a good company, have heard many good things about them

APR
Miltek
TT
GHL
Brullen - Sound clip...(Before and After Clip) SoUnD cLiP
on a 1.8t Audi a4 (Im stuck between APR and Brullen)

Edit: What kind of sound are you looking to get? Loud, Quiet?

I Have a Thermal R&D on mine, love the sound. I had Magnaflow on the GTI and liked the sound but was a bit to loud after awhile on long trips. Thermal is a bit more of a mellow tone but when you open it up it's a nice deep sound. if you have MSN Messenger, contact me at [email protected] and i'll send you some clips from inside the cabin while i'm driving.

What is cheaper Milltek or Thermal and how much are they.........I love a nice exhaust on a VW. On that MIlltek site where it has the sound clip......it doesn't get much louder than what he revs it to does it, bc it has a really good sound but any louder and it could turn rice'ish.

Does ne one have sound clips of techtonics cat-back? I'm thinking of that...also..how big are they? 2.5'?
I found some sites
http://abdracing.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=ADIAR&Product_Code=253-46 (this is aluminumized)
http://www.awe-tuning.com/pages/shared/part_detail.cfm?PMaI=3&PMoI=22&PEI=2&PP=mk4gj_18t_exhaust.cfm&PPT=Exhaust&IL=TTBorla (this is stainless steel)

What do you guys think? one is 350$ and other is 479? I don't get it
