I passed PA emissions today, for the 2nd year with the APR downpipe. Both times also with the j spacer.
Still keeping the factory downpipe, in case I sell the car.

Where in PA?

I had problems where I live with my last car. Right or wrong they didn't like that the secondary O2 was my one not-ready monitor. I'm prepared to swap the DP every year but I'd much rather not if I can turn the monitor off (or figure out how to trick it)

At the VW dealership in Colmar. All monitors were ready. I re-installed the stock tune with the Cobb Accesport. Last year, I was APR Stage 2 and passed with the tune.
Do you have a spacer for the O2 sensor? If not, you will probably need one to set readiness.

My stock DP is one OE part that I will not sell. Just about every day...I'll see someone looking for or to "borrow" a stock DP. Lol...with these guys buying up the stock DP's...you can't really find used ones for $200 anymore.

I haven't swapped out the DP or tuned it yet. My inspection is due in June so my plan is to pass and do the swap right after, which will give me a year to sort out the CEL and monitor readiness.

I have several shops nearby I just don't think any are the type to turn a blind eye, even if it looks like I'm trying

Same here I kept my OEM one for emissions testing.

There is no visual inspection in PA. It doesn't matter what the mechanic thinks. The only thing that matters is sensor readiness and no CEL.

I see people on Facebook offering to buy the stock Mk7 downpipes. Guys are willing to pay up to around $500 for a stock Mk7 DP. I've seen pics of multiple DP's laid out on a shop floor that they've bought from people. Are the people buying these DP's by the bunch reselling them? I remember a couple years ago the stock DP's were selling for $200 used...now I'm seeing people buy as many as they can and are willing to pay up to $500 for one.

Just curious.
I still have my MK7 Stock Downpipe if anyone is Interested??
IDK about the $500 so OBO? lol

could also be (this is more of a reach) but people who leased early 16/17 or whatever are trying to get out of their lease and want/need an oem downpipe? Def a stretch, but i'm sure the dealer would give you more for oem car vs some x company downpipe. Remember OEM dp is 1980$. But its most likely people just selling cats 🐱

Sold my Stock downpipe this weekend for $200.00. Since I live in Florida don't really have to worry about Emission. Buddy sold it to is putting the car back to stock and trading it in.
