Hello, my 2015 gti started doing this out of no where today. Bad vibration whenever I hit the gas and accelerate. Not only that bad the car seems way louder and super raspy compared to before. I feel like it may be an exhaust leak but thought I would post on here before anything, thank you!

Post some more info about your car, and your issue. It sounds like a normal straight piped GTI.
- mods
- when does it vibrate/what is vibrating
- is it running fine otherwise
etc.

Straight pipe, it has 3 tunes from Ecs, upgraded motor and dogbone mount, 4 inch cat less down pipe, little bit bigger of a turbo, spark plugs, coil pack, air intake. Running good and seems to be the same. The vibration is usually up around the dash but sometimes I feel it in the steering wheel and seats as well as the floor

What mounts did you upgrade to? What does the vband holding the downpipe on the turbo look like, is it properly secure? Send a photo please.

Ok so the car is running good and seems to be normal other than a slight buzzing inside the cabin. I'd check mounts and exhaust.
