Re: 2017 Polo 1.8 GTi standard exhaust

I've also got the non res on mine but to be completely honest I love the sound haha. It doesn't seem to drone much at all at 70mph on the motorway with me anyway! Do you notice any drone?

2017 Polo 1.8 GTi standard exhaust

Hi guys, I've literally just had a milltek sports cat downpipe and catback put on my 2017 GTi and love it.

I'm selling the full standard exhaust. Anyone interested? It's already boxed up. What are you willing to offer? Cheers
