Depends . . . are you going to keep the cats stock or not? IMO, it's hard to beat the sound of the MPE on an otherwise completely stock exhaust. But once you remove cats, things become trickier.

Disclaimer: This is MY PERSONAL OPINION, so don't try Benvo-ing me and telling everyone I don't know what a muffler is. This is also based on quality of sound and loudness, not necessarily craftsmanship or aesthetics.

Best rear section:
1. OEM exhaust mod (Perforated pipes)
2. Meisterschaft GT
3. Active Autowerke Signature

Worst rear section:
1. Akra Slip on
2. M Performance exhaust
3. Dinan rear
(Why are these bad you ask? Because being in the car I can't tell the difference between stock and these mufflers. I also think they are way over priced)
