I had the tail pipes extended a bit as well, gives it a bit of style.

I like the subtle camber on the wheels but seriously that car is ridiculous with all those stickers on the rear window, they'd obscure the line of sight from the rear-view mirror.

Maybe the pipes at both sides might help with seeing the corners when parking.

Good point, like mirrors for hidden driveways.

Because the four tips look better than 2 x 3" tips.

It is that or find a hot but relatively quiet sounding system for a SV6 s2.

eh, they are crazy quiet on the SS, the tips are just attached to the muffler, i guess that's a reason to have it.

The non AFM has twin outlets from the muffler, AFM models had a single outlet and twin tips.

^ So, the picture originally posted, below, must be from a manual (270kW) car where the AFM was disabled ... as the auto (with AFM - 260kW) only has the one outlet from the muffler?
Is that 10kW all a result of the better flow from the outlets without a tuning-fork split in them, I wonder?

A clearer view of the muffler. These are the non-afm version, I believe.

The AFM was part of the L77, not the LS3, from what I have garnered here at JC.

probably what mine had, couldn't wait to get rid of it. can't believe the previous owner kept it on the car as long as he did.
