Question WTT: My Tanabe Exhaust for Your F-Sport Exhaust

So I know this is probably a shot in the dark but... I'm looking for a louder/more aggressive exhaust tone. Hoping someone with their F-Sport sees this and wants something more tame like the Tanabe.

I'll pay shipping both ways as well! My Tanabe is in perfect condition, about 2K miles on it.

PM me if interested!

Yeah, not enough people have fsport and too many with Tanabe. And Fsport isn't even that much louder than Tanabe, in fact I find Tanabe annoyingly loud sometime. You're not gonna find this easy. Just sell Tanabe and buy Fsport. Fsport is going for $1099 new at ebay from a reputable seller.

Actually, Sewell is having summer sale for $999 on FSport exhaust.

Reminder there are two exhausts that Lexus sells. There is the Lexus HKS one and the F-Sport one. The F-Sport is the replacement for the Lexus HKS one, both manufactured by HKS. The Lexus HKS is quieter than the F-Sport and Tanabe MT. The F-Sport one is louder than Lexus HKS and Tanabe MT. My brother has the Lexus HKS and I have the Tanabe MT. Way quieter than mines. My friend has the F-Sport exhaust, and its a bit louder than mines. Side by side, the F-Sport and Lexus HKS look identical.

The F-Sport exhaust is proven to be louder. They look identical but in design are not. I don't have the greatest of hearing (try doing 6 years of Marine artillery) but the F-Sport is definately louder than the Lexus HKS, and a lil bit louder than mines.

Here's a thread of Carchitect doing a very detailed review of the Lexus HKS and F-Sport 2IS exhausts:

^^ Yes, thanks... I know the F-Sport is different then the HKS Lexus exhaust for sure!

Not only is it slightly louder... but *I BELIEVE* from what I've heard on youtube.com clips is its slightly more 'aggressive' sounding as well. A bit more 'throaty' and 'growly' vs. the Tanabe, correct?
I never heard them side by side, but if I'm correct, this is my main reason for wanting to make the switch.
