Anyone in West LA, Hollywood, or South Bay With OEM Exhaust Mod

Sorry for the bother but I was wondering whether there was anyone in West LA, Hollywood, or South Bay with the OEM Exhaust Mod (non-perforated)? I'm trying to find a car to hear in-person before I get it done.

I have had a couple of generous board members offer their time in the Valley but I figured I would try to see if I could find someone located on this side of the hill first before I made the trek out there (due to the anticipated traffic!). I just listened to a board member's ACM OEM Exhaust Mod (Bypass) and I found it too loud (at least I think it might be when my roof is down) so I'm guessing the non-perforated version will be a good fit for me but I definitely want to hear it before I move forward with it.

I am located in Santa Monica and I would be happy to meet anyone wherever it's convenient. I am also flexible on times and I will do my best to move any business meetings if need be.

Feel free to reply to this thread or to PM if you are located in these areas and can spare 10-15 mins. Thanks in advance!

Thanks for everyone's help,
Jeremy

No problem. If I decide to move forward then I will let you know, as we might be able to negotiate a "group" rate


Back to the main topic - Anyone out there in West LA, Hollywood, or South Bay with the OEM Exhaust Mod (non-perforated)?

Thanks for your help!

I'm in the South Bay.

But it's not "non perforated". I simply pulled the stuffing out of a small hole I cut in the bottom and left it at that. Get compliments all the time on the sound.

Thanks very much - I really appreciate it. I think I'm looking for the standard non-perforated mod, only because I have never modified an exhaust before so I'm trying to keep it as "cookie-cutter" as possible. I hope that makes sense...

Anyone out there with the OEM Exhaust Mod (non-perforated) in West LA, Hollywood, or the South Bay?

Thanks for everyone's help!

Another exhaust thread? I think this is plaguing you too much!

Have any interest in hearing the akrapovic slip-on? Nice sound, better cosmetic upgrade. I live in Hancock Park.

Sending PM right now - I definitely want to hear the Akra Slip-On. I was actually supposed to listen to someone's a couple of weeks ago and they weren't able to meet. Thanks very much!

Mike,

Yes - still exploring exhausts! I have only listened to the ACM OEM Exhaust Mod (Muffler Bypass) since I listened to yours so I am still trying to find the right solution... Don't worry - my search will be done once I listen to the OEM Exhaust Mod (non-perforated) and the Akra-Slip On...

Thanks for your help,
Jeremy
