Which exhaust would you get? Going to purchasing a new exhaust today looking for some other suggestions...

You don't like your AE exhaust or is your sig not current? Personally I like the sound of the AE exhaust with catless DP's. The BMW Performance exhaust sounds great too.

I hit a rock and it got a hole in it...

So it looks like I'll need to pick up a new exhaust, because they don't sell it just the section I need. Figured I'd try something new.

Akra sounds like stockish from what I've heard..that was the exhaust I was going to get originally but I needed something mean hence Vanguard.

Would probably get SuperSprint if I had the cash though lol.

Akra sounds great. It may not be loud like a lot of exhausts, but it doesn't sound stock. It has a great low gurgle during startup and idle, and a fantastic pitch at high RPM without the cruising speed drone - exactly what I was looking for.

Akra titanium is awesome but cost a fortune. HPF is great and cost significantly less.

Ouch - sorry to hear about the damage. If you're looking for a full cat back system, you can also check out the Vanguard Performance exhaust system.
