    Surely VW will cover if it's out of warranty by a couple of months.

    They should yes, but this is apparently another VW part that will fail on you many times over what is a reasonable life expectancy of the vehicle. They may cover 1, maybe even 2 but that only gets me to maybe 60,000km, what do I do for the rest of the expected 120,000km it will be with us? Pay $1200+ each time then? Rather find a quality replacement that will last for 100,000km ...

Where did you hear about this?

    Sorry Lucas for the thread hijack.
    My specialist VW mechanic showed me a photo of the water pump, but I can’t recall where it came from - an overseas trade supplier, I think? It wasn’t for sale online.

    I’ve seen the Mk 6 aluminium pumps online and I guess it is only a matter of time before there will be one for the Mk 7. I’m sure there will be plenty of demand....

    My Mk7 GTI PP....turns out I cant resist the VAG.

    After a 6 week or thereabouts wait, my CTS catback arrived on Monday morning just before I had to go to work. So I bailed from work a bit early on Monday afternoon and got the car up in the air and started work.

    The exhaust was well packaged with all the mufflers bubble wrapped and then all pipes wrapped in a thick see through plastic to prevent rubbing while in transit.

    When I had this exhaust on my old Mk6 GTI I had a few little concerns (resonator sat very low and a 2 bolt flange right under the rear suspension arms was unsightly) but thankfully on the Mk7 they have fixed these. Fitment is good, no issues, no rubbing. All the pipework sits nice and close to the chassis.

    The exhaust looks great, and although probably one of the quietest aftermarket exhaust options for the GTI, has a nice subtle deep tone to it while cruising, but opens up on full throttle to reveal a great sound.

    Once the mufflers have "burnt in" over a few weeks ill do a short video of how it sounds.

    Love it. How’d it fit up to the DP?
    Any issues/ time to fit?
    Did you end up getting it through JT mods?

    I was going to pull the trigger on this or some springs this week but some other priorities have taken the dollars away.

    Yes the original exhaust tips were a joke. So puny. Looks much better now.

    Yep fitted up fine to the IE downpipe. I will at some stage get that small section where the pipe reduces to 2.5" removed and a 3" piece welded in though (i did this on my Mk6 GTI a few years back and it looks much neater plus added bonus of no leaks and remove some of the ugly pipe clamps etc).

    No issues with fitment. It fitted up fine. Only thing I did was put about 3mm of washers on the rear exhaust hangars to space the exhaust down away from the rear subframe/suspension arms because it was very close and I thought it might rub. Because the exhaust comes in 3 pieces it actually makes it quite easy to install yourself. I installed the rear muffler first, then the bend pipe with the mid muffler, then the straight pipe up to the downpipe last. Took a couple of hours on the garage floor at night (would definitely be easier with some daylight).

    And yes sourced through JTMods. If you put the item in your cart and fill in your details but then back out of the order, they send you a discount code to use. I paid $1260.

    No rubbing or any issues at this stage - although ive probably only driven about 30km since the install. I'll take it for a decent drive over the weekend.
