I don't want louder than I already have, expecially considering most of my driving is highway. Absolutely refuse to deal with droning exhaust. I'd rather hear music.

Dangit, gotta agree with Bill again.

I prefer a quieter exhaust, too. Why draw attention to yourself like that? Also, I borrowed a car once with a "cool exhaust". Drove me freakin' nuts!!!

Flowmasters wouldn't bother me, hell no cat, muffler wouldn't bother me either but I don't want attention drawn to my car, I'm talking the bad kind.

Actually, some of the exhaust setups I've seen, you'd be able to feel them. I can't even imagine how annoying that would be...

Very annoying.

Harofreak I believe said he wouldn't do it again. Many wouldn't. I prefer the quiet sleeper. I'm usually doing something wrong and don't need anyone to know it was me from the noise level.

Exhaust drone is a horrible thing.

Randman has a cool exhaust on his truck..he loves it and I think it'* neat...but personally I feel deaf after a 10 minute ride.

Yet another case of "To each their own". When I was younger, I loved the loud exhaust on my Cutlass *. Now that I'm older, and more paranoid about the car, I prefer to be able to hear then engine and brakes and such (which I usually can't over the music, but the option is there)

Thats why I love my exhaust. Can't hear my brakes that squal so bad. Rear drums are good with 90% pad life or more. Front brakes look a bit dark, but other than that they are fine. What ev...5 more months.
