Since I'm delayed until a January build (P60 Night Package), I believe I will have the chance to listen to both the AMG standard and AMG performance exhaust before I make my final decision. Those are the only 2 viable options for me. No way will I be installing an aftermarket exhaust system.

Both! :)
Im gonna keep my performance exhaust on for at least a year however. But it should sell decently well to people without it.

The difference in terms of the exhaust is a slight change from the stock exhaust. I do know exactly what it is but cannot say. However, there is a reason it is much louder. Worth ALL the money. ;)

Depends on your dealer. Some are very liberal with their enforcement of regulations and others are very strict looking for any reason to deny a claim. At any rate, should not void warranty for other unrelated issues.

Totally agree. If one uses a simple CATback set up for sound effect only, it really shouldn't be much of a problem.
Now if you change the converter, X-pipe and header, you may void a significant part of your warranty.

I think for $450 for the performance exhaust is worth it, aftermarket would be at least double that +install.

I would only get the AMG
performance exhaust only if it increases hp. Otherwise total waste of $$$. Anyone knows if it does or not??

A typical aftermarket performance exhaust gives an additional 5-7 hp

The Performance Exahust has a much deeper tone. I know what the difference is but I cannot say. Believe me, it screams in person! :)

It has a V8 sound rather then a 4. They really did a lot of homework with this one.

"Screams" as in very loud, or "screams" as in sounds good?

That depends on how much of the exhaust you replace. From header out including the X-pipe with modified converter may be. Otherwise it just add sound.
But the increased exhaust roar gives the driver the sensation of greater power and speed. You can be driving a small Honda with a giant 5" exhaust pipe with ear
splitting sound and you can for a moment fool yourself into believing you are captaining a Lambo. But 0-60 is still 10 sec...
