Do you know of anyone besides borla that make something similar but less $$$? I guess it's just a straight pipe with a tip but a local shop here is south fl will probably charge 150.00 or so. Thanks

I got a straight pipe. It gives a "classic sports car" sound. I like it, a lot. The header changed it to much louder, gave it a drone at 3,000 RPM, and the like, but still a "good" sound.

Sound-wise, the straight pipe had the better, cleaner sound.

My 08 was stock exhaust that ididnt do anything to. Straight piped on my rs8 and like above its not bad at all as all the sou d diference is because of the scuba. My 12 came with the trd muffler, that just has a deep low rpm rumble and thats it. I swapped in a tsudo scuba and it woke the sound up tremendously. Its very nice. Not at all that frappy cheapo ricer sound at any rpm. Im still thinking of swapping in my straight pipe for the trd. We'll see.

Sorry guys haven't been on here in a long while, I installed the Borla in April, below is my car a few days after installing in a basic video to get an idea of sound. I've been happy with it, nice all around sound, it does have a slight drone going over 60mph,but imo nothing terrible or over annoying. Love the look of it. I don't regret it I think I picked the correct exhaust for me. Mine is a '12 5 speed with factory 16" rims,'13 touch screen radio.

If your looking to Borla for an axle back application, just go to a local exhaust shop and have them straight pipe from the Scuba. The Borla straight pipe exhausts are hideously expensive for no real reason.
I paid around $200 I think that is reasonable, especially for a made in USA nice exhaust, yes it's only an axle back, but I'm very happy with it overall.

I agree, I have the single and I'm happy. No intake yet though.
