after market muffler

I have a 2012 focus se, I'am thinking of just changing the muffler to give it a little more sound, has anyone else done this? If so what muffler did you use? Thanks.

there are TONS of options out there to choose from... it all depends on how loud you want it to be.

Lets start with that and we can make some suggestions!

I'm great.... nice to meet you... we are so close, maybe our paths will cross at some point in time!

Im in the same boat as you, I'm going to do exhaust this spring/summer and I'm looking for something subtle. I have been given these suggestions.

1. Focus ST muffler
2. Ford Racing Axel Back
3. flowmaster muffler

all of these your not going to get a lot of "performance" increase out of, but you'll add a bit of sound to your car. Im in-between the focus ST option and the Ford Racing one.

Magnaflows have a great subtle, throaty rumble and nothing that's too "in your face" loud. No freeway drone either :)

I just had a new Magnaflow muffler and exhaust tip put on my car by a local shop. I am very happy with the results. Just a little tone and a more finished look, which is exactly what I wanted. Also a lot cheaper than a full exhaust system. Anyone in the Baltimore/DC metro check out Mandrel Bending Solutions: http://mandrelbend.com/. I highly recommend them.

I'll check the invoice when I get home from work tonight. It was about $180 all said and done.

Can you post a sound clip as well? I had a shop quote me on a magna usually used on camero's. They said it would be a low deep rumble not obnoxious.
