Question VW rabbit mod

i have an AUTOMATIC rabbit and was wondering if removing the center resonator was worth it and if it would sound better than it currently does, or should that only be done to manual cars?

You have a Rabbit! Those cars are pretty zippy. What year is yours?

When you say sounds better, you've got to realize that everybody has different opinions of what sounds good. Some people like muscle cars that make your insides shake, others like high revving imports, others like anything thats loud.

It probably won't sound better to my ears, resonators seem to shape the cars exhaust note in a positive way IMHO. Try to find a VW site and ask around their, the owners will probably be able to tell you the pros and cons of removing a resonator VS getting an aftermarket exhaust, and what you can expect to hear.
