best exhaust... best sound look and price

Hey, thanks for all the great feedback on which exhaust to choose. i choose the AE exhaust and it is great!!
Thanks Mike


Hey guys I'm going to buy an exhaust but it is so hard to tell which exhausts are good and which aren't... Please let me know what you guys think from your personal experience and which exhaust is the best for the price with good sound and power!!

These are the ones i have been looking at but there might be others i dont know about that are better?!

Autobahn Exotics (AE)
Active Autowerke
Remus
Agency Power
Borla
Eisenmann
HKS
AC Schnitzer
Borla
Magnaflow
Dinan
Bastuck


ps.. i also have to choose between bumper, and weather or no i should get quad exhaust or single




Let me know what you guys think?!

Thanks everyone.

Mike

You should make this thread a pole. Anyhow, you left out THEE best one - Autobahn Exotics (AE) - best power, sound, & looks all in one...

You should add Bastuck to your list as well - I love mine - zero drone, nice exotic sound when you get on the throttle, stock like civility at low RPM

Where in IL are you located? You could come to a local meet and listen to the exhausts of the local enthusiasts, much better than listening to sound clips on the web

I have the UUC RSC335 and it has a nice sound and look to it.. I really only got it though because I only paid $500 for a brand new one!

There is a lot of hype around AE on this forum due to what you get for the $. In reality, for 335, you cant beat the sound of Eisenmann...no matter what anybody thinks. There are many other exhausts that have better value, lighter weight etc. For sound, Eisenmann reigns supreme.

AE reigns supreme by far, find someone local and get a drive in their car. You're mind will be made up immediately.

Ae wins by far.... I have auto tranny and there is no drone and when paired with catless downpipes it gives a great sound

What about AMS? I know only a few have heard it, but everyone has seen the quality.

From the exhausts available currently, I would have to say your best bet is AE.
