APR Exhaust Crackle is now available for MK7 Golf R / S3 platform 2.0 TSI vehicles!
Enhance your exhaust note just like Audi’s latest RS models! The APR Exhaust Crackle, lovingly called “pops and bangs” by many, adds a distinct crackle to the exhaust note upon lifting off the throttle, gear changes on a manual, decelerating, or while free revving at a stand standstill. This optional feature is available at no cost, at the time of flashing, for most compatible ECUs at stage 2 and higher stages. For convenience, the feature is only enabled when the vehicle is placed into sport mode or while free revving the engine. Lastly, for safety, this feature has built in hardware protection limits, and will only function when it’s considered safe to do so.
The feature is now available for IS38 based vehicles, such as the Golf R, S3, Clubsport and more. It will be added shortly to other IS38 vehicles such as the TTS.
