R32 Noisy??

16 posts in this topic

One of the reports I read recently said that although the R32 sounds great it is recommended you take the anadin with you as the noise inside the car can be a bit loud/tiring......is this true?

Naah, best sounding engine in the world. If you are unsure i think you. should opt for the AMD conversion, will sound even better and go like a rabbit on fire

Having just driven a fair distance in the last few days, I'd agree that the boom @ 2000-2500 rpm is VERY loud and annoying!

Normally @ 70mph and above you dont hear the boom, but when you drop to 60ish in 6th gear the noise makes you want to change gear! Shame 'cos cruising at 2500rpm on the motorway would be pretty relaxed - except for the boom!

the r32 certainly does have a boom... as did my s3 with miltek... it can get a little iritating after a while but you can avoid it if you really want to ...

and it wouldn't really matter if the steroe was a bit more joyous! sportifs2.gif

guys, it seems they've (VAG) gone to the opposite extreme ... I've longed so much for my S3 to have a deeper, louder growl, hence interest in R32, now you guys say it's *too* loud ... do you think, if it's really annoying, I could have a Remus fitted to the R32 to (dare I say this) make it quieter?! I imagine it won't be too long before Remus makes for R32 ... not yet it seems (can't find it at www.remus.at)

I think I should expand on my original post in case I gave the wrong impression.

The only time the noise is too loud is motorway cruising in 6th at 2k-2.5k rpm - which you can avoid by changing down a gear.

Other motorway cruising at above those revs is peacefully quiet (quieter than my boomy TT). Around town - the boom at low revs I really like - it makes the car sound purposeful and mean jump.gif

The car is actually generally quieter than I expected after reading a lot of reviews about the exhaust being really noisy. In comparison to the TT, general driving is quieter (the TT is pretty boomy most of the time) but when you boot it, the noise is fantastic cool.gif

no no.. i was too harsh i think in my post.. the exhaust note is one of the best things about the car!!! i'm just saying if it really pissed you off you could avoid it... its just below 2K that it booms...

great for turning heads though! laugh.gif

That noise plays a big part in why i bought the car in the first place. That with the speed, the looks and the understated immage make the it second coolest think on the plannet, just after me!!!

The "boom" is not an issue at all. hence the amd / miltek. laugh.gif

I agree that the sound at 2-2.5 revs is a little bit annoying but as they said, change down a gear and that's it.

But appart that, the sound is jump.gif and specially in third gear when it passes at around 3.8 revs, it changes to a race-car-sound FIREdevil.gif and if you just take your foot out from the accelerator, you will hear the detonations as in competition..., fantastic (only i wish to have a little more power on the car and it could be one of the best sports-car in the world, not just the best GTI) rafwings.gifSMOKE6.GIFznaika.gif
