cheap option: go to an pitstop, get them to chop out the resonator and gut the inside of the mufler

otherwise I think milltek stuff is pretty cheap and mass market, there are far more expensive options out there in NZ and some not even available here

for instance: http://www.bestexhaust.co.nz/store/supersprint-golf-turbo-downpipe-incl-cpsi-euro-p-14253.html

I'm guessing from the quotes you got you could buy several milltek pipes for a single price of a supersprint

Mk7 Golf / Re: Autohold Query About the Golf GTI Mk7.5

Thanks for the useful tips around using autohold and start-stop.

I guess my original query was really around whether it is possible to drive the car without using autohold and still expect the car to hold briefly on a hill when I take my foot off the foot brake i.e. long enough to get on the accelerator and do a takeoff.

Most new cars -including those with autohold - also have hill launch assist which holds the car for a second or so even when autohold is turned off.  Still not clear to me whether this is also the case in the Golf.

I'm still deciding whether or not I like these. I think I do, they're something different. Will fit them and see how I feel about them later as they're easy to remove.

Mk7 Golf / Re: Autohold Query About the Golf GTI Mk7.5
« Last post by vonripsnorter on January 19, 2018, 12:43:41 pm »
Auto hold is something to get used to, but it's really great because:

- Around town waiting at lights means you don't have to sit there with your foot on the brake. A tap on the accelerator will remove it, off you go.
- When you unbuckle your seatbelt it automatically applies the handbrake.

Only times when it's slightly annoying is when you're not really intending to stop and it puts the brake on and makes things slightly lurchy. But you get used to it by not pressing the brake too heavily (just like not fully stopping to invoke start/stop).
My sentiments exactly . I'll just add in regarding your very last comment, I've found that you can come to a full stop without invoking start/stop, if you come to the stop with very light brake pressure & remove your foot completely off the brake pedal the second the Auto Hold engages :)
