It will have to be custom, the golf didn't have a solid rear beam to contend with so the exhaust from such won't fit a Caddy.

You can use an R32 backbox or even the Golf R as the backbox for yours though, and that also means using aftermarket versions for either. I had a Milltek MK6 Golf R backbox on mine with a custom link pipe and believe Matt@reflex's blue Caddy had a MK5 R32 backbox. Another issue is the spare wheel and bracket (I removed mine) and as Doc points out, you will need to be careful with the link pipe clearing the rear axle.

Very nice. Is there much work needed on the bumper?

What sort of sound do these systems give?
had a mk4 r32 with a 3" system and it used to wake the dead!!

I had my rear box removed and a custom 3" pipe to R32 style twin 4" centre exit tips and it sounds literally no louder than it did with the standard box.

Need to get rid of all the gubbins up front to get some sound out of it I think. Egr, dpf, cat etc, not that I wanted mine loud anyway but a slight rise in volume wouldn't have hurt :)

Yeah it's easy enough with a petrol lump just knock the guts out of the cat and stick an induction kit on

What do you mean by knock the guts out? Ive heard a few people say you can smash the cat out or something?
