Can't decide wich exhaust to go with gintani sport or ae performance sport?

I've listened to numerous of videos/soundclips on youtube and i think they sound almost the same?? Is there anybody that have heard both of them live) If so, how do they compare to each other? I want an exhaust with a really deep tone to it, but thats still sofisticated and not to loud and with minimal drone in the cabin. As it is now im leaning towards the gintani sport but would really love your help on this one. Their prices are almost the same to. Please chime in!

Many Thanks

Michael

Both nice, like the G sport better, it's a little louder and the tip design is more aggressive.

I'm in the same boat with two more options... Gintani Sport, AE Sport, Eisenmann Sport, or AA... Each exhaust has a preference flaw... I gotta see which flaw I can live with.

I don't know too much about the Gintani exhaust so I can't chime in on that one, but the Eisenmann Sport and the AE exhausts we know about. Both are quality exhausts, and to my preference, either one you go with will sound great.

I think you've got a tough choice on this one. If you need any help on pricing for either of those, just PM me.

You should also consider B&B.
Some here have said the Gintani Sport still drones a little, but that's all personal opinion.

thanks,
I've had both in house - the Gintani will be the louder of the two systems, it purely depends on your particular taste. As aus stated - there may be some droning, but that would be up for the end user to decide upon.

While YouTube will give an idea on how an exhaust sounds - it should not be a definitive factor in choosing as you need to experience it in person.

We offer the AE Exhaust systems - its a very well put together system.

This will be up to you to decide as opinions will differ from owner to owner.

exhaust threads on here are pretty bad.... pretty much all you get from everyone is what exhaust they bought themselves and they'll argue till death about why it's the best you can buy
