Here's a video of the TCR muffler on my standard GTI. I'll try take better videos at some stage but this is the best I could come up with today.

Pretty sure the 7.5 pipes are wider apart so you'd need a different diffuser. CSS is a straight and popular swap.

That does sound quite good.


If you just want bigger looking pipes you can get outer sleeves in various styles that’ll give the look you want

Prior to that a couple dozen other warmed over VWs

Sounds really good that. Assume yours is a 7.5 230 GTI?

Thanks, I really am happy with it I must say.

I paid about €350/370 including shipping.

For a mk7.5 muffler to fit a mk7 you'd have to get the exhaust shop to shorten the pipes (where they exit the muffler) on both sides as like the guys have said, the 7.5 muffler is wider.

The CSS muffler is a straight swap for yours but it will be noisier. Although I haven't heard the CSS muffler in person, if it's anything like the TCR muffler, it's far from obnoxious. It's really just noticeable on cold start, on acceleration and while revving the engine (like a goon  :evil:) not at cruising.

Yea that's right Jim, 7.5 230 GTI with 6 speed DSG. It was one of very few GTI's available at the time I was looking. I'd have liked the PP like your old one but I'm delighted with mine still. It only had 11,250miles at 3 years old when I picked her up earlier this year.
I still check the classifieds from time to time and there hasn't been a nicer one, IMO, come up for sale since and very few PPs other than newer ones at a premium. Mine was at the top end of my budget.

Great colour! And a great car. I had a Mk7.5 230 for 12 months which was my first ever GTI experience and loved it. Think the Mk7.5 is going to be desirable for years to come as the Mk8 has too many features that aren’t good.

You let your wife near your tools???

This reminded me of something that happened many years ago. There was some sort of function going on in the village where I lived with my parents. There were cars parked all over the place. One of them on our drive in front of Dads garage door. I'll teach them I thought, so got the cordless out and fired a screw in each front tyre. An hour or so later, Mum an Dads car came back, they got out, then the back doors opened and their mates got out too. Jumped into the strange car and drove off. Whoops.  :whistle: :whistle:
Red Mk6 gone replaced with a white Mk7 which has gone too. Green Mk2 here to stay.
