AWE Tuning's 3.0T Exhaust Systems represent the most difficult, yet most rewarding, exhaust development projects in their company history. AWE knew the tone and volume of their Q5 3.0T Touring Edition Exhaust had to be perfect. It needed to deliver in both daily driving comfort, and full throttle exhilaration. Enter the only 3.0T Q5 exhaust worthy of the AWE Tuning name.

The Exhaust

The hand crafted AWE Tuning Q5 3.0T Touring Edition Exhaust was specially crafted for the Eight-speed Tiptronic® transmission, featuring an x-pipe for enhanced exhaust tone, and AWE Tuning 180 Technology™ to eliminate drone. This is the perfect performance compliment for one of the finest SUVs available. This is the system that took our Q5 3.0T down the ¼ mile in 12.502 seconds.

The magic behind this handcrafted exhaust is a combination of hundreds of R&D hours as well as the important ingredient of AWE Tuning downpipes, replacing the stock downpipes.

As with all AWE Tuning exhaust products, each TIG weld is hand finished internally, only butt-welded junctions are used, and flange openings are size matched to their ports, all to produce the smoothest flow possible. It is this intensive attention to detail that sets AWE Tuning exhaust products heads and shoulders above the rest.

AWE Tuning exhaust systems are hand built works of art, are award winning, and are what your Q5 deserves.

Tuning for the 8 Speed Tiptronic Transmission

Due to the weight and aerodynamics of the Q5, the 3.0T engine needs to work a bit harder to move it down the highway. The extra effort creates more exhaust sound volume, which became quite a challenge in the development of a performance exhaust. Special attention would be required - as well as the application of AWE Tuning’s sound cancelling solution, 180 Technology™.

Downpipe installation tip

Installing downpipes on these SUVs can be arduous given the placement of the factory bolts. We had so much trouble that we made an AWE Tuning-grade tool to make it easier. If you're planning an install, our Downpipe Removal Tool is a must have.

Can I Upgrade to downpipes later?

Not sure if you want to do the full package yet, or if have you already purchased a Touring Edition Exhaust system? No worries! If you purchase a Touring Edition Exhaust alone, you have one full year from the date of Touring Edition Exhaust system purchase to buy the complementing downpipes at the discounted package price - you'll only pay for the price difference between the Touring Edition Exhaust system alone and the package price (price at the time of downpipe purchase). However, this offer is for original owners only, and is valid through only AWE Tuning directly or through an authorized AWE Tuning dealer (like ModBargains & the ModAuto shop), so long as proof of the original Touring Edition Exhaust purchase can be provided.



Tip Options
All of which include the AWE Tuning logo, and double walling to ensure a mirror finish even under hard usage.

Q5 Exhaust System
  • 102mm Slash Cut Diamond Black Tips
  • Slash Cut Polished Silver Tips
  • 102mm Diamond Black Oval Tips



All tips are individually adjustable, so stagger and depth into bumper can be set according to personal taste.

And to answer the most commonly asked question: None of the components of our Q5 SUV exhaust system affect or alter any of the emissions devices on the vehicle, and therefore are legal for street use.

Downpipe Removal Tool
If installation is in your future, be sure to pick up the AWE Tuning Downpipe Removal Tool. The factory bolts are near impossible to get to. AWE created this tool because they needed it. Now available to the public.
