AWE exhausts have earned praise from owners and the press alike, due to their unique "Jekyll and Hyde" personality. We spend considerable time and effort during development to achieve remarkable civility when idling and cruising at part throttle, while also producing a war-cry wail when full throttle is applied. Sophisticated, refined, and powerful, all at once.

Quite frankly, we were shocked at how exotic sounding the 5 cylinder motor becomes with our catback exhaust system.
This is a straight forward and easy way to pick up 8hp at the crank, as well as giving your 2.5l a voice that turns heads.
There is no interior drone at any rpms, and interior and exterior sound volume is quite civilized.
Here are some features of our system. Each feature was chosen for performance and longevity reasons, and when making your exhaust decisions you should settle for nothing less:
- Fully mandrel bent 2.5 inch diameter tubing
- Thick .065" wall T304 stainless steel tubing
- Stainless steel internal muffler and resonator construction
- Stainless steel MIG and TIG welds
- Stainless steel T-bolt clamps
- Double walled exhaust tips to reduce heat discoloration
- In house dyno developed
The catback system is topped off with our signature 3" beveled exhaust tips. The tips sport precision stamped AWE Tuning logos and are double walled to ensure a mirror polish even under hard usage. Each tip is individually adjustable, so stagger and depth into bumper can be set according to personal taste. The system has multiple slip joints with high quality t-bolt clamps, to allow optimal adjustment.
** System fits both the Mk5 and Mk6 Golf / Rabbit models! Pictures shown are installed on Mk6 Golf.
