lol consider me a if kid, I guess. A 4 banger is a 4 banger is a 4 banger. Nothing anyone does to it will ever make its exhaust note resemble a car with more pistons. I don't happen to think it sounds like the Civics or Sentras with those coffee can mufflers that you're referring to but, as you would likely agree, that's what makes the world go around.This is where the forum is great as it allows a clear divergence of opinions.
After watching the video, I quickly crossed the AMG exhaust option off my order list.
3:15 pm every afternoon during school year, the neighborhood around my local high school is rocked
by identical exhaust sounds coming out of dozens of old Civics, Sentras, Focuses all with after-market
mufflers that make loud noises but do little to improve the real performance of their $6000 4-bangers.
I do not want my $60,000 CLA45 to be mistaken at a distance to be one of the high schooler's vehicles.
The overrun backfire from the AMG exhaust is especially hideous. The sound only becomes sweet when
the engine winds up on the straight. Just for comparison, go to You-tube and take a listen of what
a Mercedes 6.3 sounds like, then flip back to this video.
