I didn't like the additional sound it projected into my cabin and yanked it out.
Jealous. Makes me wish I hadn't skipped out on the offer of having 0% APR @ 72 months on the MkV GTI. I wimped out and stuck with the smaller payments of the Rabbit instead. Still kicking myself over that.
I wonder if the .:R32 got the noise pipe too. Although you'll never hear me complaining about the VR6's exhaust note, even if it's channeled directly into the cabin.
I think Mk6 GTI owners got royally screwed over though, where they introduced an electrical device. Although from what I've heard it still sounded nice when they yanked the thing out.
