golf gti MkV

Has anybody spoken to VW about the Sound Generator on the new GTI. The launch cars all sounded incredable, the UK cars do not sound half as good. The reason is that the UK cars will not have the sound generator. I was trying to find out from VW, if this would be available as a retro fit.

Why doesn't this GTI sound so good?

There's no doubt about it - this Golf GTI doesn't have the same aural appeal as the launch car we tested last year. The reason is that European versions get a sound box generator in the exhaust system that right-hand-drive machines do without - for the time being at least.

I presume this is like having baffles but in your exhaust to quieten it down confused.gif which kinda sucks...
