Sorry, no I haven't heard the exhaust myself. I've just heard
comments on the exhaust being top quality and the sound being
compared against the B&B. No low rpm boom in the interior for
the AA unlike the B&B. Quiet, almost like stock at idle and not
very noisy around town but when you stomp on the throttle it does
make a mean growl. The exhaust was classified as more of a
mature exhaust vs the boy racer sound the B&B has.
The ES Tuning is a tad quieter than the B&B but it does boom
around 2000 rpm and it's quite annoying especially when cruising
at certain speeds. I have to slow down or speed up to make all
the resonance go away. Driving around my apt complex I can set
off car alarms with it booming. The DTM tips are rather large so they
*will* melt a little of the rear valence but not too much and once
it makes a little hole for itself the melting stops. Other than that
I like the exhaust very much, it's full polished stainless steel and
it sounds great at track events.
The stock exhaust is about 48-49 lbs.
The AA is about 30-31 lbs.
The ES Tuning is about 26 lbs. Don't know about the B&B but it's
probably close to the ES.
