First, AA is just a muffler and Borla is more of a catback.

Second, Borla uses a high quality stainless steel(T304), $900-1100 for such an item is quite fair.

I had Borla on past cars that would shine up like new ten years later.

On top of that you have a one million mile warranty behind it.

It's a cat back, not an axle back.

This.

I don't understand buying a $38-50k car and complaining about a quality catback exhaust for $1000.

When I had a z32, Stillen catback was at least a grand, same on my VW, Same on my Saab.

You are welcome.

There should be a few of these system out there now. Perhaps someone would post their own sound clips and feed backs?

It stays a 4 cylinder. Starts to sound like a fart can now, like the new Audi S3. Spend a few k extra and get yourself a 335i.
