Well i've picked up the exhaust on sunday, thanks CHAZ!!!!
Fitted it yesterday but the web site wouldn't work for me to get the pics up [^o)]
anyway, here are the pics, going to get a new valance, hopefully a 4motion exhaust cut out will be in the correct place??

Any body know if the 4motion valnce fits the VW racing exhaust??
If not then i'll just cut the standard valance and make the box sit higher.

Looks great, but as said, needs a 4Mo rear valance, and bringing up a bit.

What Exhaust is it, VW Racing? not heard of it before- How much did it cost.

Wonder if they do one for the Bora? [:^)]

It's a VW Racing exhaust, from whati've read up on here, they were a ?350 optional extra.
Got this from Chaz, not going to say how much I paid!!!

IFAIK they don't produce these anymore, you can't get hold of them unless there second hand.

Hi you need to change the rear valance to an anniversary model and colour code it the same colour as the car.

It will set it off.



I put on my VW Racing pipe over 2 years ago and it still looks great.

these are like hens teeth to buy you just can't get them they where ?350 as an optional extra on the VW BEETLE

and the GOLF MK4 1.8 TURBO.

I bought mine at my local dealer's at ?85 some one had ordered it in 2 years previously and forgot to collect it.

Talk about lucky.

And they do fit a tdi aswell.

Well I rang my local VW, they want ?45 for the 4 motion rear valance,
I presume the anniversary well be around the same price,
anybody know if i'm correct about the anniversary valance price.

I don't know why but ?200 comes to mind!!!!!

Yeah, got the valance from VW, ?40 all in cos i'm in the trade.
like I said, it just needs a tweakin, possible 1/4 of and inch to the right
and 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch up, saying that, it looks good to me!!!

it's very discrete when it comes to sound, it's like any other VW GTI
until you reach 2800rpm then it begins to roar, at 3800 it dies off so it's not boomy or too loud.
Really nice actually, must admit, it doesn't look as good as the pic above though,
need's adjusting first but the tail pipes are alot bigger on mine!!!

all i did was tweak the hanger on the exhaust until the tail pipes sat naturally where i wanted them to sit, they also sit flush with the valance when looking down, although they do grow by 1/2" when warmed up!

One big problem with mine though, yours was made to sit under the 4 motion valance
with offset tail pipes, mine was made to sit under the standard valance.
So I haven't got that much adjustment as the back box is huge and the sorrounding
area where the box sits is small.
