Just wondering if this exhaust is a good purchase for first mod on my 2012 Lx auto? Main concerns are, is there highway drone at 3500 rpm like some people say? would a cheaper ebay axle-back be more cost effective? any feedback is greatly appreciated

If you're talking cost-effective, then an $80-ish ebay generic is the way to go.

I've bought two from seller autumnwish_autoart and have been happy with them.

I destroyed the first one when I had inadvertantly backed the car into some packed ice. Even then, I was able to remove it and straighten it out a bit, and it still looked and functioned fine right up through when I traded the car in.

An axleback is basically for looks and sound, not performance. The 'backs I've bought both have a removable baffle in the rear so you can have a little more sound if you want it. Neither one had any drone inside the cabin at speed, even with the rear baffle removed, but you can actually hear the engine as you shift through the gears.

Yes, you can pay three to four times more for an axleback, but to me that is pointless.
