Exhaust help
« on: 06 January 2021, 17:43 »
I am looking to replace the muffler//silencer on my car & hoping to get some help, I'm unsure which one would be best. I drive '96 MK3 Golf CL, not the most desirable MK3 I know. I believe the engine code is AEE, not sure if that makes a difference. I am looking for something that will give a better sound than stock but not unbearably loud, yaknow?
I am not mechanically savvy & am just learning the basic, so any help would be greatly appreciated!

Does it need a new exhaust?
There's not much in the little engine of yours; would replace the thermostat, clean up the rear brake drums and give it a service before blowing money on an exhaust if it doesn't need one.
It's never gonna sound like a sports car; certainly not for less than what the car's worth, quite significantly so.
