The Mark VII VW Golf GTI is a potent little hot hatch, especially if you’ve got a Performance Package Golf Mk VII, good for an extra 10hp with fat oversized brakes, a factory limited slip and a host of other goodies that make the “Performance Package” one of those option boxes you really want to tick. The owner of this GTI has been a hot hatch enthusiast for years andSr Mod Expert Alan Wei just helped him give the GTI the look and sound it deserved.
The factory GTI Mk 7 Exhaust is a bit tame – it’s rather quiet and features a plain looking dual tip exhaust configuration. We’re going to change that.
We’re replacing the OEM dual tip exhaust with a Remus Axle-Back Quad Exhaust for Mk 7 VW Golf GTI, seen here with the factory system, to give the GTI a whole new look and sound. The Remus Exhaust is lighter than the factory system and the quad tip configuration will look awesome. But with quad tips, you need a diffuser for quad tips to match – fortunately this kit comes complete with a new diffuser as well!
The Remus Exhaust diffuser features several fins to give the car a more aggressive look, and the quad carbon-fiber trimmed exhaust tips really give the car that “DTM” flair. The finish on the tips is excellent.Since Remus is an OEM manufacturer of exhaust parts for BMW, Audi and Volkswagen, Remus Exhaust systems fit great and are built to last.
After a test drive to ensure nothing “moved”, we took the car outside and snapped a few detailed photos.
With the car purring happily with the Remus Exhaust fitted, this GTI is looks how it should’ve come factory.
