I thought we'd throw together a quick video so you can hear the differences between the two most popular exhaust options on the Macan. Recorded on the Macan S.

AWE Tuning -Touring Edition:

Remus Axle-Back w/ Cross-Over Pipe:

Is it just me or does the .2 look a lot faster doing those launches?

I see what they mean now by the .2 being buzzy. Not bad, just different. I prefer remus on the .1, but the AWE on the .2.

Really wish some of these slip on cat backs came with "squared" Turbo type tips. I love the look so much on the turbo.

My .2 GTS definitely feels faster than my .1, but the noise just isn't in the same league. The .1 sounds so much nicer with a deep growl whereas that .2 sounds very "raspy". Sound more 4cyl than 6 or 8 cyl.

I was hoping the Aussie models had the exhaust all the way up as we don't have the petrol filters due to our fuel.

.1 sounds way better IMO. the .2 almost has that Nissan VQ/Infiniti sound which i'm familiar with bc i owned one in my younger days. .1 has a noticeable throatier and deeper tone.

It's not a volume issue imo, it's a tone issue. The .2 has nice pops and crackles on downshift in S+ mode, but it just doesn't have the deep burble my MY17 GTS had. Volume wise I'd say it's quite similar.

I don't suppose doing the Aussie muffler mod is an option to make the GTS gen II loud ?

From outside the vehicle, they're pretty similar in terms of volume, maybe the .1 is a tad louder, I really don't know. Certainly a different tone. The .1 to me, has a slightly deeper air sound to it (more traditional turbo exhaust sound). The .2 has a little more of a pitch to it. I think both sound pretty good.

Great video comparison of the .1 and .2. Makes me appreciate the tone of my 2018...in lieu of exponentially better PCM.
