Now I have to apologize for posting photos of my dirty car ... But, it's a crappy spring day in Toronto, raining all morning... Came back from the shop and MAGNAFLOW is under BROWNSUGAR... I never tried any other aftermarket pipes on MC, so there is no expert here. But, I love the sound of it. No droning. No unwanted rubbing noises, no clunking... On a open road it seems that engine "breeds" better and I can listen and shift better by hearing the pipes. Especially between 3000-4000 RPM the sound is a beauty. In all, I am 100% happy with the choice, and recommend this kit.
