APR Deception...

Kinda sad that the vortex thread got closed, it was the only one with APR responding.

Their response seemed to be that they can call anything "RSC" as its a marketing term and therefore their exhaust was a RSC exhaust. Also that if it sounds good its all that matters, nobody looks at the inside of a muffler anyway. Kinda a big FU to anyone who believed their marketing and spent all that extra money on a APR exhaust. I asked a few times if any of their exhausts for any application had those really cool looking baffles and never got a response.

Was planning on dropping a few thousand on a APR turbo kit when the winter sale starts. Now I dunno.

I'm not surprised. Most of the time when a company starts getting big, they cut corners to maximize profit

I still like apr but I think they should make this wrong right

I totally agree and the thing is i was about to order a quad tip exhaust from them for my b8 good thing i saw this before i pulled the trigger. Im not buying crap from APR again hell there is no difference between there and a chinese one both have shity welds that break of at some point and a straight pipe for a muffler. Im hopeing arin starts responding on audizine he was some what active there.

Wow, interesting. Like said above though, not suprised.

I really wanted the quad exhaust too, but didn't feel that shit was worth more than half what they wanted for it.

Maybe this will shut up more of the APR fanboys that lashed out at those for calling out APR on their BS in the past.

Anyone post this on MK7 yet?.... since APR only cares to have a presence on the latest and greatest platform(s) anymore.

It's unfortunate, but I have no real complaints with this exhaust. It would probably sound better if they actually used the technology.

It serves a relevance on any forum it shows how they deceive there customers regardless on what platform if there willing to do it to one they will to others.. If it was any other company APR would be bashing them for what they have done. APR needs to take responsibility for this and fix the issue at hand instead of dropping blame on others and avoiding the situation at hand.

The not so funny part is that I do have an APR catback. Me thinks it's getting cut open when I take it off to sell the car.

MKV still gets love from APR, atleast from Richard and Keith... Keith came all way to a local APR dealer to help resolve some issues with my stage 3 install and tuning

Richrd even came out to our local exotic show to see my ultra rare 95 S6 and offered build me a new exhaust system since the car has suffered some New York winters

My MKV has BillyBoat tbe setup, cause i called out APR on their marketing hype and Keith told me just by BB since its same thing and about 500 less at the time.

MkV were still new 5 years ago, and had Mk6 engines. I have no complaints with APR, actually positive experiences. But I will take a long, hard look at any hardware I buy in the future.
