    Default Which sound?

    Im wanting to get a s/s exhaust system built for my car but unsure what sound to go for. Dont want it too loud, im think maybe a touring car sort of sound (if it can be done) or a deep growl. What do you all think?

    I have been to rms twice before but didnt have any problems. They got rated in the top 10 in scotland at one point. What have you heard about them?

    If you have a Longlife franchise near you, it's well worth looking at their 'Mid Sport' tone, PIMM has a system with this and it's one of the best sounding motors i've heard. His is a V6 mind you, with dual exit and twin ovals on each side, looks pretty darned good too

    Any custom exhaust builder such as Longlife or Powerflow dealers should be able to tune the sound to how you want it, you might need something up front on the air filter side to get the induction note as well though.
