True - also non valved, though. So louder all the time. Haha.
The 7.5 has all 4 tail pipes connected.

Thanks! I canít recommend it enough.
Only downside thus far is the fuel consumption.
Itís not terrible - long term average is showing as 32mpg.
The 7.5 is better on fuel due to its 7th gear if you can stretch to the facelift. Theyíre better equipped as standard than the 7 too.
Oh and theyíre all DSG if you werenít aware of that.
No real issues either. Early Rs had some turbo failures but these were released a little later so have a later revision.
Had to paint the brake hubs - they were rusty looking already at only 10k miles. Dust shields are the same.
Rear discs score early too - seems to be a trait of the MK7.

Thanks, pal. The standard white ones were beginning to fade.

Lovely Jubbly, beautiful colour, who needs metallic paint. and all that expense, just one small thing, I would dress the arches, having said that, my Ford ones go the same as yours too quickly.

Arches get a foam and blast.
Could benefit from dressing the fronts but the rears are fabric. PITA.
