Try out the vanguard! I love it...when you get on the throttle it sounds mean, but when you are just cruising it's actually pretty quiet!

Search for reviews on vanguard titanium exhaust. And it's a pretty well priced for a Ti exhaust!

I've had it on my car for about 1000 miles. Should be posting some youtube clips soon! But for the mean time there are youtube clips of the vanguard exhaust, just search vanguard exhaust. It'll be of a white m3, think there's a few more nice clips.

About the drone...not sure if you have read over the drone threads...but drone is highly subjective. It seems that many people have said that drone appears in all exhausts, some are noticeable and some are not, so it all depends on your own ears disruptv. Do a search for done in this subforum and you'll see the different discussions about it.

Hope this helps.

I am pretty sure that none of the exhausts mentioned above are made in the States.

I believe the Vanguard units are from what ive read. It's hard to find out though since the company doesn't put real contact info on their website.

The Amuse Ericsson is not just slip on.. you have to cut your stock y pipe after the resonators and weld a flange.. at least the old one requred that not sure of the new one though.

The exhaust drones loud@2700-3Krpm when new.. I've got 6K miles on it now and I don't notice the droning anymore.. either that or i got used to it..

albert1028, I am moving closer to the Vanguard Ti. Do you have high flow cats and the x-pipe yet ? I am still trying to find a video of Vanguard Ti with Fabspeed HFC's and resonated x-pipe. I think this is the best system for my taste.

This sticky might be a little out of date but it's a pretty good single-source place to start in terms of options. Then I'd search on the types to find threads on each to answer the other questions. Of course, folks will chime right in too, which is probably what you wanted in the first place.
