    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I'm looking into getting an exhaust in the near future. I'm definitely a fan of the hidden tip on the B5, but when I was talking to a salesman about the TT hidden tip system he recommended against it. He said that a lot of people complain about the noise level inside the car due to the the...
