I order the APR RCS turbo back exhaust system and I am also looking in lowering my 2011 GTI. I've been reading around and I've read the the APR turbo back exhaust sits a little lower then most exhaust under the car. If I get it lowered would I have a problem with clearance? Also how much should I lower it? Also what company makes a good lowering kit?

i have it and yes it sits a lot lower. the ghl exhaust sat higher then the apr rsc one. i have rubbed on really ****ty curbs and road blocks that they use at the intrencese to the military instilations over here in germany but other than that i have not had a problem. when i get the car back in the states i am going to lower it another 1 inch if i can with out rubbing the tires on the fender. so you should not have a problem. i got the kw varient 3 suspension and i droped it about 1 1/2 inch so far and i can go about 1 more inch. so if that gives you an idea.
