Individual mode is a piece of cake Jeni.

No degree in mechanical engineering with a minor in computer science required.

Press the mode button (left of the gearstick, nearest the dash). This brings up a menu on the infotainment screen. Choose individual mode, then choose configure.

In that menu you can set "engine" and "exhaust" noise levels.

Click ok and job done.

Just reading through all this and im not sure if my GTD has this at all. Its an Aug 2014, got it last November. When i have it in sport mode, i swear theres a growl from inside the cabin. I currently have mine set up the same as p3asa (individual mode with the engine on sport) as I also think the steering is too heavy in Sport.

How could I find out if mine has the s&s pack ? As I said im convinced it sounds much louder and sportier when I have sport mode on?

Cheers

If you have the sport and sound pack you will also have red brake callipers. If they are silver then you will just have the inboard soundaktor.

Looking to order a GTD in the coming weeks, I looked on the online configurator and couldn't see the option for sport and sound pack - is this still offered?

No. This seems to have been dropped when the mk7.5 facelift Golf was launched.

I've just ordered a new 18 plate GTD and the sound and sport pack is no longer offered on the MK7.5 an enhanced sound (audio) package is available though but nothing to do with exhaust notes.

I do believe that ABT sell a plug and play sound enhancer which enhances external noise, I'm trying to find out if it's available in the UK. This would suggest that the GTD does have an external exhaust note enhancer anyway or am I wrong?

Technically, its illegal to modify the exhaust noise of a vehicle over and above the factory noise level... (under The Road Vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations 1986)

I'm not sure where a third party fake noise generator would sit, but 2016 also introduced EU wide tighter noise limits for vehicles, which probably suggests that this is why VW removed the Sport and Sound pack from the GTD around the same time?
