Mine arrived stateside early this am and was delivered via FedEx about an hour ago. Definitely wasn’t expecting it that quickly as I only ordered it last weekend.
Just got back from the parts store to rent the pipe cutter so now I’m patiently waiting for the exhaust to cool down so I can install it.
What model year do you have?

Is the size and shape of the TCR muffler 1:1 with the 2019 7.5 muffler?

I have a hidden hitch installed and was curious if the TCR muffler would interfere,,

I didn’t do a side by side comparison but yeah it appears to be identical in shape and size, maybe a bit thinner.

Nice! I’m so happy I went with it over a full exhaust. It’s exactly what I wanted, slightly louder with no drone and the dsg farts make me giggle.

What clamp did you buy? I have a 2018 too.
So I wasn’t expecting it to arrive as quickly as it did. I wanted to use an oem clamp, but it arrived earlier than expected so while renting the pipe cutting tool I grabbed one of their 2.5” clamps off the shelf. It’s just a standard 2.5” band clamp that you could buy off Amazon. So far no leaks after 250 miles.

Found one local to me on Vortex for $250 - BNIB. He ordered it in September, before it showed up decided to trade in his GTI for a Jeep. It showed up in late January.

It's going on next weekend.

Significantly excited.

Wow thats a great deal. It’s still worth it at the ~500 I paid, but nice find!

So how do you figure out how much shipping is going to be from e-acca? They are currently listing the muffler at $383 but I have no idea how much it will cost in shipping.

You have to email them to get a quote. It should be $150 US, which is what I paid about a month ago.
