What do you guys think?

It's hard picking exhaust setups when you've never heard one in person!

on the 1.8T's Clayton has a 3" catted dp and a 2.5 ish exhaust with only a resonator that sounds really good, and I have a 3" catless dp and a 3" exhaust with only a muffler and I think it also sounds good but obviously a different tone (also my manifold leak doesn't help either so I'm sure it'll be better when that's fixed).

Also totally agree with trying to pick an exhaust based on videos.. It's really hard especially when they are mostly free revs.. you can't hear the true tone until the car is under load. Plus then just doing pulls away from the camera doesn't give you a 100% accurate tone either.
