Any type of Subtle Exhuast?

Im looking to get an exhaust for the future and was looking at a borla catback but wasn't sure if that fit me the most. I also don't want my car to sound like a rice can. I just want something that will have a nice tone when i wanna go fast and not when im sitting in my school parking lot with random kids staring at me. get it?

any ideas would be great. thanks

Performance Mods

So I just installed my CAI from K&N and love it. I was acually thinking about holding off on looks and giving my car the performance upgrades that it could use. right now for the future im thinking an exhaust, lowering springs + new struts and a rear sway bar. I havent really researched tuning my car and im not sure if I can do it yet since my car is still kinda new.

any suggestions on further performance upgrades. any feedback would be great thanks.

How many resonators/mufflers on your model year? Maybe delete or change something instead of a full exhaust.. ORP? HFC? Modding it will be different than what others got and give you that this fits me personal feeling!

I also merged your threads together since they both fit into the same category.

I really like the sound clips of the FSWerks Stealth exhaust, sounds pretty docile under normal driving conditions and has a good growl when pushed.
All the suspension parts you want are available, just remember that by adding lowering springs you will sacrifice ride quality if you go very far, and you will need to play with the alignment..

I went with the magnaflo cat back exhaust. Adds a nice low grumble to the car, but is in no way loud and annoying. To be honest I think I get more sound out of my Steeda CAI and motor mounts than I do my exhaust

I got the borla catback installed about a month ago. I love it so far.

Definitely breaks in and gets louder but still has a nice low tone and growl to it. Not ricey at all.

I replaced just the muffler it's self with a magnaflow and it has just a little more growl to it, no annoying sound like if you put a five inch can on the end, slight "S" curve on the inside, you can see through it instead of the chambered stock muffler, cheaper than replacing the whole cat back also.
