For our Q5 3.2L Exhaust, we knew the tone and volume had to be spot on. It needed to deliver an exhilarating wail at full throttle yet be quiet and civil during part throttle, around town driving. Countless research and development efforts by our Fabrication and Engineering Departments have yielded the finest Q5 exhausts on the market.
Featuring an x-pipe for enhanced exhaust tone and Featuring AWE Tuning 180 Technology™ to eliminate drone, our Q5 3.2L Exhaust family is the perfect Performance compliment for the daily driven vehicle.
The Q5 3.2L Exhausts come in two flavors:
- Downpipe-Back system
- Resonated downpipes alone
AWE Tuning Q5 3.2L Non-Resonated Exhaust System
A Downpipe-Back system that mates up with the factory downpipes, the Non-Resonated system is for those looking for a more aggressive head-turning sound, with all the same benefits as the more subtle Resonated System.
AWE Tuning Q5 3.2L Resonated Downpipes
The AWE Tuning Q5 3.2L Resonated Downpipes, in conjunction with the Downpipe-Back exhaust, offer one of the most sophisticated pitches on the road. Our acclaimed Resonated Downpipes feature larger than stock resonators in order to produce a more subtle sound volume.
Highlights of both systems:
Hand-crafted, every detail of these exhausts was labored over to ensure maximum performance and longevity:
- + 8hp, +7tq at the crank
- Increased pipe diameter to 2.5" to better let the engine exhale
- Strategic elimination of mufflers to release tone when uncorked
- Available with Polished Silver or Diamond Black adjustable tips
- Engineered, developed, tested and manufactured in-house
- Thick .065" wall T304 stainless steel tubing
- High quality stainless steel band clamps

Topped off with notable 4" inch slash cut tips, available in standard Polished Silver or our distinct Diamond Black plating. The tips sport engraved AWE Tuning logos and are double walled to ensure a mirror polish, even under hard usage.
Sound Perfection: AWE Tuning 180 Technology™
As exhaust gases exit the 3.2L engine and flow into an AWE Tuning 180 Technology™ equipped resonator, they pass through strategically located ports, and into reflection chambers. Sound waves, carried by these exhaust gasses, bounce off the walls of the reflection chambers. By controlling the size and location of the ports and the chambers, we also control when the sound waves exit the chambers. The specific timing of when the reflected sound waves re-join the main exhaust flow creates a one-hundred-and-eighty-degree out-of-phase sound wave that cancels out problematic frequencies.
