“A brand new tip design we’re calling “ReflecTip™” will be debuted on the RS6 and 7 exhaust, where the tip’s parabolic shape redirects exhaust notes back towards the driver. We respected Audi’s RS oval tips (of course), engineered them with parabolic properties to help that special SwitchPath™ tone make its way through Audi’s sound deadening, back to the driver’s ears. It sounds too good to only let those outside of the car hear it, you know?”
