Found this on youtube:
Pretty poor picture quality but the sound is ok.

Looking at their website this might be available to import/install at GMP performance in Charlotte, NC. Which would be easy for me to get to:
Dealers - speedART Porsche Tuning

Am I crazy for kinda liking it? Especially the setting at 1:22 in the video. What do you think? Too much?

As much as I like the sound of a good exhaust, loud is best at the races, rather than being a centre-shot around town and country.

I prefer some subtlety in my own car's sound and have left the exhaust standard. Sport is my preferred drive mode and that's just about right for me, especially with the sound enhancer disconnected.

I did go for a "loud" colour though.:D

I think I prefer it over AWE and armytrix... Not sure I'd go for aftermarket exhaust though... I think, if anything, I will just retrofit PSE, because, as GTS daddy mentioned in another thread, and which I agree with, aftermarket exhausts won't add resale value at all... But, if loud exhaust is what you're after, i have to say, I think this sounds the best of all systems I've heard. But I guess you'd have to hear them in real life to really be able to judge...

Yes you did. :)

That's my thought also. I already have the PSE and I don't dislike it. Would hate to spend the money on aftermarket just to find out I don't like it more. Plus I live on a Prius/Tesla kinda street so I'm already the "loud one". I think what I'll do is email GMP and ask them if they could let me know when they install one. I could stop by and listen to it in real live...

@[email protected] looks interesting also. But I couldn't find it for the 718 (982) on the website link you posted. Is this available for the 718? Are there videos online re how it sounds? I couldn't find any.

The video looks and sounds like they shot it on a flip phone in the late 90s:D

In person and live is always best. One issue though, when the exhaust has carboned up, say 3 or 4 thousand miles, it will sound significantly different. I've noticed that both on the Boxster and my Moto Guzzi with aftermarket.

If I was contemplating an aftermarket one, I'd be trying to find one with some miles on it for a listen.

That sounded excellent! Much better than the PSE in my opinion. If you bought that exhaust, just save your stock exhaust. When it comes time to sell or trade the car, someone here will definitely want that exhaust! You'll enjoy it, then sell it and get half your money back... I say go for it!

You're absolutely correct, that's the 981 version. I have a message into them to get an ETA on 982s and I'll keep you guys posted.

I like it as I am into the bass and low rumble sound. Sounds better than AWE I believe. Wonder what the cost will be.
