Polished 304 Stainless, I read somewhere.





I nailed two. Get 'em while they got 'em! Won't last!

IndyTom has one on order. Opelmania is thinkin' on it. OhRandi just got her's installed, and I'll quote
On a side note, the new exhaust I installed yesterday sounds amazing. :) Highly recommend the factory performance exhaust.

Been a VW OEM Dealer installed option for a long time. That is the p/n. T304 Stainless.

Steve White VW had this runniong on eBay for the last year or so. Gone now, but here's the cached listing
VW Beetle 98-05 Sport Exhaust System 1C0-071-903-U | eBay

Here's another, even less thank ECS if they still have them. I think these are the ppl I called last week and they had to bring it from Germany, but the price has gone up to what it is now. It was $103 and change.
VW SILENCER - 1C0071903U

says excludes the turbo s, what about the tdi?
Hey, I'm the messenger! (lol)

I've been watching these on the web for a year and I have never seen mention of TDI fitment. Here's how I would approach that, check the standard exhaust p/n's for both the 1.8T and the 1.9T, if they are the same I would have to believe they will interchange. I'm guessing, however, the back pressure, etc, would be all different for the diesel. I know that type of thing can be a big issue.

I had a national chain put an aftermarket on my Burb 454BBC and it was $hit (stalls, no power, etc), found out there was NO aftermarket ($700+ OEM part), and ended up buying a new take-off from another shop (for $125) that had dueled one out. Of course I couldn't bitch, mine had over 200k miles on it.

It's a closeout from VW Parts Outlet Center. They sometime run some amazing specials on stuff that has been laying around for a while. It's a $799 system and some places are selling it online for over $829.00. This is an Amazing price and it will be gone before you know it. I got mine from a place that even discounts the discount and they sold it to me for $103 and some change. Plus 14 bucks shipping. So for 117 bucks shipped I got a $799 Stainless steel system. SWEET :D It says it fits 98 -05 New Beetle except Turbo S but I have seen someone having it installed on a 2010 Beetle. Not sure what engine. So I assume it can be made to fit other years with a little ingenuity.

Wow! That is a good price! Thanks for the link and info, M. :thup: I still need to get to my exhaust guy. I was supposed to go on Halloween, but he wasn't there. I plan on going Friday to see if I can go cat-less and see what kind of muffler he's going to put on. I'll definitely keep this in mind though. :cool: :D

ECS is showing these as back in stock, but with no pic, and no details. WTF after cancelling my order and telling me they were NLA, none available to be sourced AND out of production!

No matter, got two elsewhere, but WTF!
