Volkswagen Genuine Silencers.

Less stress, more peace and quiet.

There are some things you just can't have enough of. Peace and quiet, for example. That's why Volkswagen Genuine Silencers are particularly efficient when it comes to absorbing exhaust noise – they're 2 decibels quieter than the legal requirement. Thanks to high-quality materials such as stainless steel and efficient protection against rust, they have an especially long service life – despite extreme fluctuations in temperature, engine oscillations, road salt and other environmental factors – allowing you to fully concentrate on the journey ahead. Not only that, you'll also generate less noise pollution

What you should know about your silencer.

Why you shouldn't experiment with your silencer and what you can do to ensure a long service life. Here are the 3 most important facts.

Do the hearing test: Is your Volkswagen unusually loud? Is anything clattering? Do you hear any rattling sounds or a loud humming? But don't stop there – play it safe and have your silencer checked on a regular basis, e.g. during a vehicle check at your Volkswagen Partner.

A defective silencer is harmful and dangerous – for you, for the environment and for others. An increase in noise is stressful for both animals and people, your concentration level suffers and you can't hear warning signals properly.

If exhaust gases simply leave the vehicle unchecked, they can also damage any parts found near the silencer. Parts that have fallen off a vehicle also pose a huge risk to other road users.

It's much better to have an expert change your silencer. Reason: Its suspension has to be both firm and flexible. This will keep it safely in place and enable it to absorb any vibrations. If it's incorrectly installed, vibrations may occur. In the worst-case scenario, these may damage the exhaust system and the underbody of the vehicle.

Bringing you more than just peace & quiet.

Psst – even if it's main job is to keep the noise level down: As part of the exhaust system, your Volkswagen's silencer has a few more tricks up its sleeve.


Did you know that...

  • ... without a silencer, every combustion cycle of the engine is as loud as a pneumatic drill.

  • ... the perceived volume level doubles with an increase in sound of just 3 dB.

  • ... from 2024, vehicles in the EU may be no louder than an average of 68 dB – that's about the same volume level as a normal conversation.
