I got to drive the car today quite a bit in different conditions (highway, city, residential)

On the highway the car sounds good and is not droning or annoying at all.

It is a little loud going through first gear and under load at slower speeds, 35 - 50, it can be a little annoying and is a little louder than I would like.

It seems pretty loud to me while in the car but it didn't seem to draw too much attention from others.

My wife thought the same thing - a little annoying at times but overall not too bad.

We'll leave it on for a week or so and see if it becomes a pain or if we get used to it.
Neither of us want a car that sounds like a 70 Cuda with glass-packs. But I do want it to sound like a performance car and not a 328i

Nice looking exhaust for the price, and the axle back system sounds good in the videos with the stock cats. Probably very similar in volume to the OEM mod or Megan. It would be a good alternative for us E93 guys since Megan doesn't fit without modification, and its around the same price as the OEM mod which doesn't go back to stock very easily.

On the other hand, with the cats removed, it appears pretty raspy and high pitched as far as I can tell, much like the oem mod + cat delete. My current setup, a Megan + catless/resonated xpipe is much deeper and barely any rasp which I prefer. For anyone looking for a cheap exhaust setup, I'd go for a Megan + TTPs for great power and sound and would only run you about $900.

Guys I've lived with these exhausts for a week and although they sound great from the outside I don't like the sound on the inside of the car while driving slow.

There's a bit too much noise from around 2000 rpm to about 2400.

I think I'm going back to stock. I looked into the oem mod but I don't want to take a chance because it's too hard to go back if I don't like it.

Oh well, I wanted a more sporty, serious sound, and from the outside I got it, but I guess I want it to be civil while I'm driving it too.

This one was cheap enough to try but I'm not willing to try the high dollar systems because I'm unlikely to stick with them.

I'll just stick these up on ebay when I get them swapped back out.

There is no exhaust that doesn't have some interior drone that I'm aware of.

The MPE has no drone and it would seem that most feel the Corsa does not drone. The MPE of course is coolaid money and I say that owning it but regardless of how you view its worth I'm pretty sure no one would include it in a list of reasonably priced cans. The Corsa is much less however and would at least make a budget list comparatively. It may be worth having a look see.

I can assure you that the oem mod (perforated pipe method) will not drone at all and sounds fantastic from the outside.
