I chose to buy this exhaust from overseas to play the exchange rates, I got a much better deal which I owe to Dackel

I cannot say whether this exhaust is louder vs Euro versions however, I can say that on cold start it is very loud. The tone is definitely deeper during normal driving and WOT is a lot of fun . This is axle-back only but definitely an improvement over stock & golf-tee. It's covered 200miles only so let's see if things change in a few months.

On the plates that are welded to the exhaust and y-pipe it actually says UK on them.. Its hard to read but it says UK 10/12. I'm guessing that the build date..

With the y-pipe installed its definitely louder but not to loud in my opinion.. I love it. I cant wait to drive it in the spring with the windows down(I tried with the windows down now and the heat on, but its just to much once I gt moving..)
