    Only partially correct. You need Amarok wheels larger than 16" (so 17" and up) to clear the callipers on the T5.1 400TDI and 350TSI Vans. 16" only fits the 340TDI

    Reason is the 340TDI has smaller...

    Won't fit (easily) the stud pattern for 1 is different (5x120 vs 5x130). Look for an Amarok V6 at the wreckers, it has better brakes (larger front and rear discs) than the 2014 models.

    Golf R and GTI downpipes do not fit. Golf GTI stock cat-back fits the TSI provided it is MK7.5 GTI and provided you get a GTI rear valance.
