If it's subtle then count me in.. though i love the sound of a good car, i can't be driving a modded car with a loud exhaust into a corporate building. you start getting stares like crazy and its not the kind where people are impressed by your car. as a 30 year old professional worker, loud and annoying exhausts are done and over with for me.

Yea as a working 30 year old professional myself too i think im over the loud exhaust unless i truly have a fast car. I love my lexus for being lexus. I really enjoy the sound of exhaust like Meisterschaft from GTHaus but seeing that one video of GS350 (all loud and going nowhere fast)turned me down. just my .02

correct me if i'm wrong but, if you want louder can't we just wait for a mid-pipe to come out and install it later down the road?

That really sounds great! My only wish would be the exhaust didn't look so close to factory. I guess that's the idea behind it as not to stand out, but still. The tips should be a bit bigger. Also, I would personally paint the mufflers black so you don't see the chrome from behind, I did that on my old car and it looked really good, just the tips were visible.

Yes I have the Takeda air intake installed. But I'm thinking about removing it and going back to the stock intake with the 'sound generator.' I dont like the tin rattle noise it creates when the rpm reaches redline or so. Plus i want to hear more of the exhaust now lol

Of course! Anything is possible. But with AWD models, theres that supply and demand issue so you might have to get one custom built.

Thanks! Hmm i don't think the mufflers look anything close to factory and why would you paint it black to hide this beautiful work of precision welding? Everyone has their preference i suppose. If you want to stand out, go with meisterschaft for sound or even aimgains twisted mufflers! (they look SICK)
