If you are worried about drone, get dinan or arkapovic, only two systems in the market with no drone.....others will say the remus and eisenmann sport doesn't drone but it does.

Drone is subjective. Imo, it's not bad.

Try listening to each in person, it is a subjective measure of sound so you really need to hear for yourself IMO.

However they are far priceir. Do you want a loud system or something closer to stock?

Loud = Eisenmann Race
Stock-ish = Eisenmann Sport

not loud like a corvette with flowmasters on it, not annoying like a civic with fart cans, and not stock. I want it to sound exotic, like a lambo or something.

They do have a point with the akro but that is two different parts of the price spectrum....

Go with the race over the sport....

Go race... Best sounding drone ever! LOL

But honestly, it's a bad ass exhaust... it does have a slight hint of exotic under load.

Why not go with something in between? Like the Eisanmann high performance.

In my opinion Eisenamann is one of the nicest made, and nicest/refined sounding exhausts for this car. But if you want to have a more exotic sound to the car consider the AA exhaust, it seems to emphasize the higher notes more and that tends to give it a more exotic like sound.

Meisterschaft GT. End thread.

No seriously, the MGT may be what you want. All the high pitched exotic sound of the the V8, while very very minimal drone to it. Check this out...

Get a Sport, and if it's not loud enough, just get an X-pipe.

Great video! I'm greatful it wasnt like some of the other short exhaust videos where you have to endure the techno or death metal in the background.

Agreed.

If you dont plan to get Xpipe then go with Eisenmann Race.
