AWE SwitchPath Exhaust w/ Chrome Silver Tips for MK7.5 Volkswagen Golf R

AWE proudly offer the best line of exhausts for the R, with a range of styles to satisfy any preference, and unparalleled quality, fitment, performance, and sound.

The Power of Choice: Transform Your Ride From Street to Track

  • The SwitchPath™ Exhaust is a combination of 3-inch and 2.5-inch T304L stainless steel pipes, with a smoothly curving shape and a valved passenger-side tip outlet. It is carefully packaged and made in the U.S. with two different styles.
  • If you’re looking to take your R out for a spin, SwitchPath™ will keep its original valve setting, while also following the commands your ECU provides via throttle input, engine speed, and Drive Select. When you’re trying to leave quietly in the morning or driving through town, you can close the valve. When you’re ready to have a little fun, just switch to Dynamic and your R will be filled with the sound of a signature AWE tune with added pops and crackles guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

The AWE SwitchPath Remote

  • Push-button mood control.
  • From inside the cabin, you can operate the exhaust valves with the press of a button anytime.
  • Can be used with stock system or AWE SwitchPath™ Exhaust.
  • Includes two remotes, a wiring harness, a control box, and the necessary mounting hardware.
  • Compact size ideal for attaching to a keychain or fitting in a cup holder.
  • A single press of the button can instantly switch from a quiet to a hostile environment.
  • No Check Engine Light – Guaranteed


  • The AWE SwitchPath Remote and its accompanying control unit replaces the factory system, giving the user the capability to open and shut the exhaust valves – both the AWE SwitchPath Exhaust and the stock exhaust – manually through the SwitchPath Remote.


  • The “On” and “Off” buttons on the AWE SwitchPath remote allow you to open and close the exhaust valves, respectively. The “On” button is located on the left side of the remote, while the “Off” button is on the right.
  • It should be noted that the AWE SwitchPath Remote supersedes the stock valve control and, thus, the exhaust must be opened or closed only with the remote as required.

Exhaust Tips

  • The AWE SwitchPath and Track Edition includes 102mm dual-walled, chopped exhaust pipes available in chrome silver or diamond black, each one displaying the imprinted AWE brand emblem.

Conversion Kits

  • If you decide later on to switch your volume, it is easy to convert between AWE’s SwitchPath and Track Edition.

Valve Simulators: Why do you need them?

  • AWE’s SwitchPath™ Technology offers flawless sound as standard. For the Track Edition versions of these systems, the factory valves are taken out and the ECU stores a ‘soft code’. Although there is no harm caused by this code, AWE’s Electronic Valve Simulators offer a way to get rid of it.
  • Plug in these easy-to-use devices to the car’s wiring system to switch out the exhaust valves. This will stop the car’s onboard computer (ECU) from saving any fault codes. After they’re plugged in, get the engine going and you can start driving– it’s that easy.
  • Sold individually, but exists as a pair.

Fitment Guarantee

  • AWE was established in 1991 to provide customers with aftermarket components. Committed to quality, AWE pledges to ensure that all their merchandise is designed to fit seamlessly and can be easily installed by a trained professional, secured through their AWE Fitment Guarantee.

No CEL Guarantee

  • The AWE No Check Engine Light Guarantee provides assurance that if the product is installed accurately and used properly, the Check Engine Light will not appear – even if other AWE products that work with the product are installed. There won’t be any issues or lights. Simple.

About AWE

In The Business of Performance

  • AWE has one vision : To Unlock Performance. AWE has been producing award-winning, handcrafted performance exhausts, track-tested carbon fiber intakes and performance intercoolers for over two decades. Their elite team of researchers, engineers, and drivers work diligently to create and distribute these reliable, premium performance upgrades for some of the industry’s top cars. Founded in 1991, AWE is based out of a state-of-the-art facility in Pennsylvania, and sells its products through an exclusive network of dealers and retailers both online and in-store.

Their In-House Edge

  • The hard work and dedication put development is clearly evident. A current carbon fiber intake, with over 350 hours of in-house development and testing, it is obvious those involved in this project are incredibly passionate about performance. By strictly regulating every aspect of the process, the end product is one with unrivaled quality and effectiveness.
  • AWE is a reflection of the union of their laboratory, CAD tools, CNC machine, and official-tuner status at New Jersey Motorsports Park. From the first steps of prototyping to manufacturing of the final product; from there to the testing process, all of these elements are at the heart of what AWE does. Having every part of their operations in-house means they are able to control the quality of their products, and that’s exactly how they want it to be.

AWE’s Vision

  • Put succinctly, their corporate culture revolves around a unifying vision: unlocking performance. Every CAD rendering and every test run is subject to the scrutiny of “What can be improved? How much more performance can we unlock?” Even the minutest details involved in the selection of an intercooler and the crafting of a 180 Technology® exhaust are held up to the same level of commitment and excellence that has become a hallmark of their brand. It all comes together to ensure the perfect balance of performance and reliability.
  • To put it simply, they want to be the go-to experts in precision automotive engineering for car lovers like you.
The Bulletproof Automotive website contains many thousands of products purchased in multiple different currencies. All of the prices are entered manually and accurately at the time of entry. Due to the consistently fluctuating international exchange rates, at times prices may not be able to be honored at their original intended rate. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, unfortunately our website is unable to compensate dynamically for what can at times be volatile changes in the cost of items due to currency values fluctuating, changes in prices from suppliers, changes in shipping and import duties, and other factors. Rest assured that any order you place on line will be at zero risk to you in this area. If in the event your order cannot be fulfilled at the original intended website price we will offer you a 100% refund, no questions asked. We will continue to do our best to maintain updated prices and we will always continue to offer our price match guarantees as well to ensure our prices are always the best for you. In short, prices may change without notice. It is always advised to give us a call prior to placing your order online to confirm availability and to confirm current pricing.
Items that are in stock in the US, either at Bulletproof’s warehouse or at a supplier’s warehouse, are generally delivered within 7-10 days. Special order items from overseas take considerably longer. As a courtesy Bulletproof offers delivery estimates to our customers which take into consideration manufacturer availability and shipping schedule. These estimates represent our best guess based on previous orders from the manufacturer and do not in any way imply a guaranteed delivery window. Many manufacturers work in a “just in time” inventory system and often take 2-20+ weeks to produce an item once an order is submitted. All deliverable items are then sent to our Japanese warehouse. Bulletproof ships a minimum of one full ocean freight container every month from Japan, oftentimes more than one a month. Ocean freight takes an average of 4 weeks. Typically it breaks down to one week in Japan for paperwork and customs, two weeks by boat and one week in US customs/clearance. Due to the wide number of variables between manufacturer and shipping schedules, delivery estimates are simply just that – estimates. We attempt to estimate conservatively and we usually deliver faster than our estimates suggest. It is not Bulletproof’s policy to guarantee delivery time of any special order item, this is impossible for us to do. By ordering you acknowledge that there is no required delivery ETA and an order may not be canceled or altered due to manufacturing or shipping delays, all ETA’s are provided as a best guess only. Please review the full Terms & Conditions here.
We do pricing a little differently on our JDM brands and we believe in making things simple and clear. No hidden fees or surcharges. Every price you see includes the shipping cost to our office in Los Angeles, California and all the associated taxes/duties/fees for bringing the products into the US. The only shipping you ever pay is from our facility in the US to your location. Be wary of resellers that don’t include the cost of international shipping in their pricing on JDM parts. While we believe we’ll always have the lowest all-in price on JDM products, we offer a price match guarantee for all authentic parts purchased from authorized dealers as well. For many international customers, it’s much more affordable to ship from the USA than from Japan directly, as the air freight and ocean freight costs are typically much less. However, for customers looking to ship directly from Japan outside of North America, or domestically in Japan, we can provide pricing specifically for that scenario. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any pricing questions or concerns. Please email us at with any inquiries.
