Agreed. The exhaust is slightly louder than stock when cruising around but when you step on it the sound is much louder than stock (especially outside). I think AA has a great product here since they've figured out a way of keeping drone to a minimum while still providing a fairly loud exhaust.

My only complaint is that the tips have experienced some change of color due to extreme heat when doing track days. From the pic you can see that they have a bronze color to them now. Not a big deal, but it has me thinking of possibly power coating them black.

Perhaps, a exhaust polish or cleaner can help??

Yeah, and you can easily take them off occasionally for a deep cleaning.

Detailing tip: Use thick paste, wheel wax after thoroughly cleaning the tips. Put on two coats and buff off gentley both times with a soft, clean cloth. You will then be able to wash residue off pretty easily. Repeat 2x per year.

No x-pipe....maybe down the road but my funds are going first towards other track upgrades such as brake pads/fluid and upgraded rubber for the stock 18s.

So I did a couple coats of metal polish...tried both Mothers brand and Eagle One. The tips look better but I couldn't get rid of the bronze color. Here is what they look like now.....
