: I currently have the Triflow exhaust, want to switch to something quieter. Which is a better choice in terms of quieter sound, performance, craftmanship, and weight?

Performance is similar in most quality aftermarket exhausts (2-4 HP gain at the most) just cuz the stock exhaust is very good. Weight is very similar I believe on the AA & SS but definitely lighter than stock. I just sold my Borla & got the AA, much better quality on the AA (comparable to SS) & much quieter around town (yet it still screams at full WOT). Both exhausts are very good & I personally like the shotgun style of the AA tips a little better than the SS DTM (classier & elegant) but you can't go wrong either way.
The AA will cost you $585 W/your CCA discount, expect to pay $750+ for the SS DTM. I would go w/the AA & get an intake or short shift kit w/the difference.
Good luck!
