Is the Remus Race Exhaust louder than the C63 AMG stock exhaust?

I absolutely hate how I can't even hear my exhaust from inside the car with the windows up and with the windows down the wind noise is louder than my exhaust. I test drove a C63 AMG and hate the car but the one thing MB got right on it was the incredible exhaust note, from inside the car it sounds INCREDIBLE and outside it's equally as awesome and I was shocked that despite being an AMG and all that it had a stock exhaust system that was that loud.

I have a Remus Race exhaust on order and want to know if it is louder than the stock C63?

Yes it's louder than the C63.

C63 is loud but still under 100dBA

Remus Race will definitely be louder than a stock C63. The Race version is quite aggressive if that's what you are after.

Accord,

The REMUS Race was not rated for decibel rating as it is not intended to be a street system.

There's only a slight drone from 2k-3k rpm, but I love it, it sounds great.

Now there is an idea held by few, I imagine.

I am well, thanks. Currently shopping for an exhuast.

How are you?
