So I'm thinking of getting rid of my resonator. I know that's the difference between the standard exhaust on the 45 and the performance exhaust.

(I'm aware I won't get the same sound lol)

I've seen a few 250's without their resonator and think they sound quite good.

Do you think I would get a similar sound with the 1.6 180. Or will it just sound too try hard?

Or will I have to replace the muffler as well?

Do you think keeping the stock muffler will make it worse?

That's all I'm going for... A sound to match the look of my car. I suppose it's a waiting game for after market to catch up with the demand!

I think the CLA45 is the only CLA model thats able to pull off the deep-ish sound that is needed to match its look. 2.0 and 1.6 are too small to produce deep tone

Its not REAL bad, but it does resemble a Honda, especially at the end. For a 1.6 its nicer sound than I expected, but I cant help but wonder what else is done to it...
Sent them a email asking what they have done... Using Google translate -.-, will respond once I have a response

The sound is slightly noticeable. The muffler really needs to change

Would removing the Resonator void my warranty? Sorry new to all this.
Any other ideas to make the car sounds deeper Im waiting on my 180 to arrive
