AWE SwitchPath Exhaust w/ Diamond Black Tips for MK7 Volkswagen Golf R

Introducing the best exhaust lineup for the R with a variety of flavors, incomparable excellence in regards to fitment, power, and tone.

Enhance The Performance

  • The SwitchPath™ Exhaust is constructed of high-grade U.S.-made T304L stainless steel and features sinuous bends, snug packaging, and two moods in addition to a valved passenger-side tip outlet.
  • SwitchPath™ keeps factory valve control intact, and operates according to the signals the S3’s ECU sends out according to the amount of throttle, engine speed, and Drive Select setting. If a subtle exit is desired in the early morning, the valve can be closed. But for when it’s time to clutch the asphalt and fly, switching to Dynamic unleashes the signature AWE tune with heightened pops and hisses sure to elicit a satisfied smirk.

The AWE SwitchPath Remote

  • Push-button mood control.
  • Operate exhaust valves with just one press of a key from the interior of the vehicle at any point.
  • Compatible with both standard equipment and AWE SwitchPath™ Exhaust.
  • The package includes two remotes with a wiring harness, control box, and all necessary mounting hardware.
  • A small size ideal for a keyring or cup holder.
  • In a single touch, go from placid to confrontational.
  • No Check Engine Light – Guaranteed


  • With the AWE SwitchPath Remote and the control box that comes with it, you can manually open or close the exhaust valves, either on the AWE SwitchPath Exhaust system or on the stock exhaust, overriding the factory valving.


  • Once the AWE SwitchPath Controller has been installed, the exhaust valves can be activated by pressing the “On” button to the left on the SwitchPath Remote. When you are done, just press the “Off” button to the right to close the exhaust valves.
  • It is important to remember that the AWE SwitchPath Remote supersedes the stock valve control, which indicates that one must use the remote to open and close the exhaust as needed.

Exhaust Tips

  • The AWE SwitchPath and Track Edition is supplied with 102mm double-walled, slash-cut exhaust tips, obtainable in both chrome silver and diamond black shades and boast a stamp of the AWE logo.

Conversion Kits

  • If you opt to switch between SwitchPath and Track Edition later, AWE makes it stress-free to make the conversion. Simple!

Valve Simulators: Why do you need them?

  • AWE SwitchPath™ Technology ensures superior audio quality as it utilizes the pre-installed valve system in the Golf R. Not looking to settle, the Track Edition of this system completely removes the original valves and stores something called a ‘soft code’ in the system, that some would prefer to remove. To eliminate this code, you can install AWE Electronic Valve Simulators for maximum optimization.
  • It is easy to install these items into the factory wiring in lieu of the exhaust valves, thus avoiding any potential software issues from taking out the exhaust valves. Just plug it in, start the car and drive – it couldn’t be simpler.
  • Sold separately, comes as a set of two.

Fitment Guarantee

  • AWE commenced business in 1991 and since then they have honed their expertise in fitting aftermarket parts. AWE completely understand the hassle which can be brought about when a car part does not fit. With this in mind, AWE offer their Fitment Guarantee which promises that all AWE products have been engineered to fit without any issues and are simple to install by a qualified installer.

No CEL Guarantee

  • The AWE No Check Engine Light Guarantee provides reassurance that no Check Engine Lights will appear when products are correctly fitted and be employed as meant, on cars with no other adjustments (with the exception of other AWE parts designed to be employed in conjunction with the product in question). Problem-free, with no lights. Straightforward.

50 State Legal

  • This product is designed in a way that means it can be legally sold and used in all 50 states.


  • Conceived, constructed, and created with care in AWE’s very own facility.
  • Maximum power increase of 12HP and 9 ft-lbs of torque at the wheels (with turbo-back exhaust system and unmodified software).
  • Produced with a combination of mechanical automation and meticulous handwork, their 3 inch and 2.5 inch T304L stainless steel tubing with a wall thickness of 0.065 inches originates from the United States.
  • Attaches directly with no modifications for easy and straightforward installation.
  • Utilizing a minimalistic approach with a streamlined design yields improved results.
  • 102mm double-walled, slash-cut tips available in diamond black.
  • Perfect fitment, guaranteed.

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 [email protected] with any inquiries.
