OK, I'm going back and forth on this exhaust. At times it seems very loud, baratone like and droning but then today relatively quite. Here is a video I took but as you can tell its very hard to get decent sound... I also tried with a video camera and it was more worthless. The problem, you hear a lot of intake (AFE) and drivetrain with the car. Also, you won't see me blasting down the road at 100mph to get a decent video, just some sharp stabs at throttle and pull away from stoplights.

For now I'm mixed, it keeps changing its character for the better (today) but I only have 100 miles on it. Hopefully the n55 mid-pipe comes in tomorrow and I can install, maybe that is what I'm looking for. The actual look is amazing, the tips and sizing are spot on!

Note, it must be louder because the wife asked if it was broken because she could here me coming from a distance inside the house.
