Akrapovic available?

Possibly looking to purchase an Akrapovic system. Does anyone know of someone who sells them?
Thanks.

Why didn't you do any research? It takes 5 s using google:

http://www.akrapovic.com/#!/car/products?brandId=17

GTI only, no Golf Mk.7 R.

But.... Volkswagen is going to offer an Akrapovic option soon:

https://www.autoevolution.com/news/v...st-116093.html

... which means it WILL be available later this year in Europe.





How often do you think that has been discussed on this forum?

I searched their site earlier and found the info you have just stated. I found the same result...not for an R.

I've also read in other threads that for cars other than US bound, there is such an exhaust.

I was just hoping that someone might have additional info.

Thank you for your response.

Shut your pie hole. Annoying isn't a good color on you.

You can request a prototype to be built by them, but it's a long shot until they release a partnered exhaust with vw which will come with the PP Rs in EU.

They have in the past taken offers for custom built, but $$$. Worth an email.

Best of luck.

just wait for the production exhaust to have a part number and order it. Gti owners did that with the clubsport s mufflers, but i will sell mine and go with this and a new diffuser when i can get my hands on it
