Volkswagen GTI Stock vs. Magnaflow Exhaust by WINDING ROAD
Turn up your speakers, plug in your headphones, Winding Road has made an Exhaust note comparison video!
We drive the 2011 two-door Volkswagen GTI with the stock Exhaust against a 2010 four-door Volkswagen GTI with an aftermarket Magnaflow cat-back Exhaust. Both have six-speed manual transmissions.
Which do you prefer, and what are your thoughts on adding aftermarket Exhausts to new cars that some may feel are too quiet?

most affordable cars on the road.
2012 Volkswagen GTI DSG Test Dive & Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/volkswagen/gti/2012/ The 2012 Volkswagen GTI is
just about the most fun you can have in a car for around $25,000. A compact
performance car is judged based on its engine. And the GTI has one of the
best all-around 4-cylinder engines in the world. In fact this engine powers
numerous Volkswagen and Audi vehicles. But the 2012 Volkswagen GTI is not
just a car with a wonderful engine; the GTI is also a good looking car that
is well balanced, and quite comfortable. In fact you can get the Volkswagen
GTI in both a 2-door and 4-door hatchback body style. The base price is
$23,995 with the top of the line Autobahn model costing $31,695.
The 2012 Volkswagen GTI is powered by a direct injection turbocharged 2.0 liter 4-cylinder engine that
makes 200 horsepower and 207 lb-ft. of
torque. While this may not seem like a ton of power, it is more than enough
for the everyday driver. Power is transmitted through a 6-speed manual or
6-speed automatic transmission to the front wheels. The automatic
transmission is called the DSG which stands for Direct-Shift Gearbox. This
double clutch electronically controlled transmission can execute a shift in
mere milliseconds. This helps performance figures such as 0-60 MPH as well
as adding to the fuel economy of the GTI. The manual transmission model
gets 21 MPG in the city and 31 MPG on the highway while the DSG automatic
transmission model gets 24 MPG in the city and 33 MPG on the highway.
On the inside of the 2012 Volkswagen GTI you have 2 choices when it comes
to seating material. There are the cloth seats that are very unique and
serve as a tribute to the first GTI from the 1970's. On the other hand you
can get your GTI with top sports seats that are finished in leather and
provide a comfortable yet firm feel. The rest of the interior of the 2012
Volkswagen GTI is accented here and there with awesome red stitching on the
shift boot and steering wheel. Speaking of the steering wheel; this flat
bottom unit has integrated controls for the stereo. The pedals are also
very sporty and race inspired.
The GTI also features a ton of technology built in. On the outside the
daytime LED running lights are a standard safety feature that not only
looks great but also makes you more visible to oncoming traffic. Bluetooth
comes standard on the GTI and you can upgrade to a touch-screen navigation
unit. On the safety front the GTI sports 6 airbags, Electronic Stability
Control, and an Intelligent Crash Response System. The attention to safety
has resulted in the Volkswagen GTI being picked as a 2012 Top Safety Pick
by the IIHS.
