Beside the big ass price tag. Why is the exhaust so popular?

The price of the system is not that much higher compare to other brands.

This is incredibly well build system, 32 lbs lighter compare to the stock and has a nice, deep exotic sound with no drone.

The weight of it is the main selling point I see. From the video clips I've heard the sound seems to pretty muted and soft compared to other aftermarket options. Others have expressed this view as well
Obviously, it would be better to hear it in person.

I thought this exhaust was like 5-6k worth?

Are you talkig the full system or just the axle back?
NO ONE has ever mentioned there's drone. I'm really interested in which system you heard. There was also a mention that someone had to bring the car in to have the exhaust adjusted since it moved after it heats up.

I really wish people would be honest about these mods on this board. The member seem to be in bed with the sellers a lot here. This is not directed at doba in any way.

doba, car looks sweet. What ramps are you using and are you lowered?

Don't worry about this guy claiming there is drone. There is none. He's probably never even heard the exhaust and is just trolling. Just find someone close to you that has it and listen for yourself. Full system or slip on it doesn't matter. No drone, zero, zip. And I am VERY senstive to drone.

You can adjust the tips yourself if you feel the need. There is no reason to bring the car in again. Mines got 600 miles on it now and fits just like it did the first day.

My honest opinion there is NO drone with slip-on version.

I got engaged and my fiance told me not to get anything loud so she can drive the car. Yesterday she told me that she can't even see the difference while driving normal ... But when you step on it, you can hear very nice and deep sound.

I used regular ramps from Kragen which were around $35. The car is lowered on Dinan springs.
