Hmmm, I certainly don't reckon their quality is as good as Milltek.

Looks good, someone could snap up a bargain there. APR systems sound really nice too, a lot different to other systems out there  :happy2:

White GTi has a full turbo back one of these and he did extensive research before choosing one of these over Miltek.  :smiley:

^^^ Maybe, I will do some research myself as I am very temped by the one WhiteGTI has just got, as from his review it sounds (no pun intended)  like a good balance between performance, sound and cabin "boominess"  :smiley:

I've asked APR if they can supply an RSC for the S3 but they aren't very forthcoming in their replies.

Hi!

The eBay advert isnt too clear, im not sure if it is the RSC version. I notice that its being sold by Awesome GTI, so if anyone is interested, then im sure a quick phone call to them will clarify things.

I know that they did have the RSC system fitted to their demo car - so perhaps it is! Worth double checking though.

T_T - No doubt that Miltek produce very good quality exhausts. The new APR RSC system has been very well received by every tuner that I've spoken to, even with JKM who have sworn by Miltek for years now saying how impressed they were with it. Have a look at it one day in real life - the fitment, the materials used etc etc -  I think you will be impressed by it!

T88OMM - yep, the sound is completely uncharacteristic of the TFSI engine! Crazy  :laugh: :laugh:

Top Cat - you seriously crack me up  :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin:

Steve P - correct, I am running the RSC as opposed to their previous system. Their previous systems were called 'Stealth' - which is the equivalent of the Miltek Resonated (but be aware that this system is actually pretty loud and is more comparable to the the Miltek Non Res in real life). The other system was called the 'Sport' - which so I'm told sounds like a race car, and is too loud for road use. With the introduction of the RSC technology, the downpipe and sport cat part of the exhaust system has not changed at all from the old 'Sport' system, the RSC part is new to the Cat back only.

Yes, quite a bit more expensive than the Miltek equivalent, and in terms of performance gains from the full TBE probably pretty much exact to the Miltek, so I think the key point to consider is the noise differences.

As I've always said, if anyone wishes to hear the RSC, do not hesitate to get in contact with me, and we can sort something out  :happy2:

Chris.

Paul at APR has just got himself an S3, and I think they are using his car for the development work of this system. Probably only a matter of time before it comes out  :smiley:

Im guessing this wont be an RSC beacuse it is a relatively new exhaust isn't it ? I think that this system is the old APR one taken off their MKV demo car in order to fit the new RSC  :happy2:

So why did the pic in the fleabay ad clearly show corrosion on the pipes?  You don't get that with Milltek, nor do you get that on a six year old Magnex.  Me thinks APR stuff is overhyped, but ETTO.
