exhaust question

There has been plenty of posts about exhaust questions so I don't want to seem redundant, but I am considering the aatuning gen3 exhaust and the Dinan exhaust. I have looked at the other manufacturers and have not liked the way they look. I am having the Dinan cold air intake installed and the stage two chip they require for the intake, and I figured the exhaust would complete the upgrade. What would be a better compliment to these mods, the aa exhaust or the dinan?

Firstly, the stage 2 software isn't required for the intake.. that's just the dealership raping you of your money... the software will optimize the intake for the car.. but it is by no means required...

The AA exhaust is definitely the better one.. someone actually did a dyno of before and after with dinan, and they lost hp..... don't forget Supersprint and Remus as well.. they both of the best looking tips in my opinion.. rolled chrome with engraved logo.. but they're also the two quietest exhausts on the market..

however.. if you're getting dinan intake and software,, you might as well complete it with the exhaust and go for the 10 pts and a badge.. otherwise.. if it's not too late.. I'd switch to different brands altogether.. if you like the dinan style intake.. then get the Benfer.. it's about $100 cheaper and it's basically the same.. for software you could go with a shark injector..

but then again, if you want to have a warranty dinan is the way to go.. although, be aware... some dealerships will try to say dinan parts void your warranty.. which is bs.. and some that aren't dinan authorized sellers won't touch your car either.. but just take it to a different dealership
