Oh man, it's time for more of that good-good.
Tanabe Medallion Touring Axle-back Exhaust
What is it?
The Tanabe exhaust is a stainless steel axle-back (read:rear axle) exhaust. It's purely sound, with some freed up space.
Everything. All of it. I love this thing. It's a beautiful polished metal, with stamped logo on the side. Phat four inch tips, with 2.5in piping. It bolts right up to the factory exhaust and hangers. It lined up centered and didn't stick out too far. It's great. It's a gorgeous, shiny piece of metal underneath the car. It sounds incredible too. On cold start, it has a room shaking growl until it calms down. When you step on it, it'll grumble and roar down the road [I]with no rasp[/]. Bingo. Right there. 2.5L I4, with an exhaust that gives no rasp. This is not a garbage overpriced fartcan exhaust. It's a mature, incredible sound that'll surprise people you pass by without being overbearing or too loud. It's great; it's so great.
What's not nice?
The price. At $660-700, it's steep, especially compared to competitors such as Corksport ($500), but it's not as expensive as the AutoExe ($900!!) piece.
Ease of install:
It's so easy.
I mean it. Remove the two bolts, pop off the two hangers, then the other two, and reattach. It's so great, and very simple.
Overall, I highly, highly recommend this exhaust over all others. Remember, we don't drive racecars, so one doesn't need a hi-flow cat and freeflowing exhaust. This piece sounds incredible, looks great, and is easy to install. I love it.
