    Go on youtube and look up videos to listen to. Its all down to your preference. Imo muffler deletes sound like crap and are obnoxious. Look into an axle back.

    One thing I did was replace the muffler with another resonator. You can see it in the "what did you do today" thread. It gains some sound, but keeps it refined.

    I went through this with both my 2012 (5AT) and 2015 (5MT) LX coupes.

    First, realize that this is only my opinion. YMMV.

    Second, if you have a CVT, don't do anything to make it louder. CVTs with loud exhausts sound terrible.

    While replacing my mufflers on both cars with generic ebay axlebacks, I listened to the cars with no mufflers. Neither one sounded anything different from a car missing its muffler. Not an option for me.

    But if you insist on a little more sound, check ebay for a generic axleback. Or of course you could spend 3x as much for not much more in the way of quality sound for an R18.

    I don't know if the last seller I bought from still handles them, but the one on my car now, for about $75, sounds good, considering it's not on a 'high-performance' engine.

    Also, I have a 5MT, which, to me, makes all the difference.

    So, for an R18, 5MT = best, 5AT = 2nd best, CVT = a distant third.

    Again, YMMV.
