Not to offend anyone, but it sounds a little "import tuner" to me, if you catch my drift ...

Based on that video, this sounds pretty nice. It's got quite a burble going on, I like

Like it or not, we've got a little 4-banger under the hood, just like most import tuner cars. I'd say most highly free-flowing exhaust systems will likely give off that '4 cylinder' sound, no real way around it. Typically, the more flow, the more sound, the more you hear the engine, and we happen to have a 4 cylinder.

I like the sound as well. As soon as the car is available to drive again I'll do a sound clips with the vehicle in motion.

I might have to get one of these. I dont imagine it being overpriced like other systems. Seriously?! Almost $2gs for some piping and a can? I should develop a system with plenty of gains for dirt cheap hmmm.

$2k it better be titanium magnesium or some other high quality metal. Not stainless steel lol.

But i do need some perf and sound for when at the track. Itll finally sound fast

If it were titanium, it would likely be about $5K, NOT $2K.

couldn't agree with you more on this. HKS, Greddy ti exhausts for japanese market are cheeper than some of these stainless steel exhausts for german vehicles.. just don't makes sense at all...
Only if the german vehicle owners didn't have this weird reason to look down on japanese market products, they could bring some real compatition to this market to bring the prices down..

Its because the market will pay for it so they continue to price it that way...coming from the Japanese car market before, rarely do you find $45K car that people are moding....
