Maxhaust Active Exhaust - anyone familiar?

Hi everyone - I'm a new Cayenne TDI owner and have been trying to find exhaust options for this truck. I have had little to no luck but ran a crossed the concept of the notion of active exhaust systems. One in particular seems to be a bit more popular in Europe but I can't find anything about them here in the US.

They are called Maxhaust. If you YouTube maxhaust for Touareg v6tdi you will see a cool video.

Anyone have any experience with Maxhaust or other active exhaust systems?

Don't recall ever reading about this.

VW Touareg models are as follows:
Generation 1: T1 is model 7LA & facelift T2 is model 7L6
Generation 2: T3 is model 7P5 & facelift T4 is model 7P6
Generation 3: T5 is model CR7 [Not available in "VW Atlas" North America!]

A speaker does not make a nice exhaust system!

I felt same way until I listened to several YouTube clips. Moreover, if you aren't thinking this is the wave of future given rise of ecars, you ain't paying attention .

Also, doing research on these guys, they look to have a very large European presence.

I may give it a try..

Having been nearly run over by a silent electric car maybe an external V8 recording is a good idea!

Remus also makes these. Not something I would waste my money on. I think the 3.0L sounds great as is. Their video of the TDi touareg sounds awful.

All of these electronic exhaust units sound horrible on Youtube. I bet they sound even worse in person. Any self-respecting car fanatic will laugh at you!

The day I drive an electric vehicle that has a V8 sound speaker is the day I hang up my driver's license and live on a boat!

Ahahahahahaha! Same here! This is the most ridiculous contraption yet. Like fake news and fake presidents, everyone is faking their lives and what they have today. Sad! If you have a 1.6L engine don't fake it, we all know.

For 1200 euros you can have a custom exhaust made instead

Ouch! Haha . Appreciate everyone's opinions. BMW I heard even in the M series cars uses active exhaust. Anyway...my Cayenne is fast, it just lacks sound for ultimate experience. I put Blue Spark on it to give more throttle responsiveness but it makes noise. Don't know if we are going to keep BS.

Anyone else familiar with any other real exhaust enhancement?
