Exhaust question

Post by SuffolkBob » Wed Jun 10, 2020 10:19 pm

Hi all,

Long time lurker. On my 3rd RS4 (B7,B8 and currently ‘18 B9)

I’m hopefully having a Remus exhaust fitted next week- my only disappointment with this car being the sound

I’ll be taking home the sports exhaust currently on it

Do you guys think I’m better off trying to sell the sport exhaust or keeping it and selling the Remus when I move on from this car (looking to keep it another 2-3y). Storage isn’t a problem

Any opinions? And hope not a daft question!

Cheers. Bob

Hi Bob not a daft question no! I'm currently going through the same journey with my B9 RS5 and as you say-they are too quiet! I'm going for a non-res race Milltek catback system and have the sports exhaust as well. I would say if you can store the old exhaust then make a decision nearer the time. The one thing everyone agrees on is the lack of noise so when it comes to sell it you should be able to recoup at least (depending on mileage and condition) around half the retail value of the Remus (even better if you can get a good deal on one now). They will be an in-demand item and hopefully there will be more of the cars sold by then so a bigger market.

Thanks Steve
That was my feeling too!
Hope you’re enjoying your RS5 as much as I’m enjoying my car

Not a problem Bob I originally was going back to a C7 RS6 or 7 but they are feeling a bit dated now and the 5 really impressed me. Having said that I’ve not even managed 800 miles in 3 months of ownership. The lack of ‘drama’ is annoying to be frank, previous was an M3 Competition and that was an excellent steer and plenty of adrenaline shots. The B9 is probably too smooth for its own good! The exhaust will massively help with that and when it’s on will post some comparison videos. Be interested to hear the Remus comparison as well.
Strangely enough my insurer (AXA) tells me that (despite exhausts being on their modifications list) that they won’t insure me with it on so I now have to find a new insurer.

This sound issue is massive now with Audi mainly down to the GPF thing. To me you buy an RS for the look performance and above all the sound. I’m not a fan of BMW but when you hear their top end cars they do sound good.
I think I’m probably on my last ever Audi RS
