Hello. #SmartFriends .

After i put the intake on my car now im planning to get the exhaust as well. I´ve seen SOLO Performance, Carlsson and brabus exhaust. There are some videos but i cannot take differences on the sound between those three.

Based on my liking, that 4-pipe Carlsson exhaust is the most beautiful for me, but i would like to know if it is worth it (over $1000 investment) and what kind of sound and/or improvement do you get?

I want a better tone, but not super loud sound.

Any suggestions or comments?, thank you!

What Smart Bob said! I installed one last year and it is just fine. Since it is all stainless steel, there should be no rust problems.Check with Smart Madness.... that's where I got mine.

Several of us bought Carlssons a few years back at a good discount; I never would have paid the $1K. Noisier than stock, not at loud as a Borla system. Looks nice with the 4 pipes, IMHO. :)

If you want to be noticed by other cars, a louder exhaust does seem to help. I would not waste the time changing to a BRABUS if there is no issue with your current exhaust. I have a modified Solo side exhaust with an added piece to exit out the back. Too much noise made it into the cabin with it in it's stock form.

- I have a solo performance exhaust and i notice less low end tq and more tq at a higher rpm. It will pass cars on the highway with less time needed. Stop light to stop light, i have to give it alot of gas to avoid the shifter lag from 1-2.
- Yea, i agree. Keep the exhaust stock till the flex pipe breaks or someone wants to buy your stock exhaust.

Where can i get the carlsson for less than 1K, that price tag drives me crazy LOL? I do not want too much noise; I may like a better tone and improve the look.
