    Sounds great! I gotta hear a couple drive-by clips ....A little more aggressive than everyday driving and all out. ...both outside the car. If you can!

    I had a Borla on my mk1 focus and loved it. Only thing I wish is that they didn't use a rolled tip ...I MUCH prefer a hard edged slash cut.

    Definitely, it was about to rain and getting dark but I will compile some on-board and drive-by videos.

    Looks great.

    I put mine on last week too. I was surprised at how much louder than the stock exhaust it is, almost too much for my taste, but it is definitely growing on me. The "pops" are no longer pops and sound much more like gunfire now. The guy shoveling snow outside my building the other day jumped a good 5 feet in the air when I took a fast turn to avoid oncomming traffic and then let off the gas.

    Did you run into troble with the flap motor? I had to take mine off and try a second time to get the spring right. Got the dreaded "no drive modes" message on the first try. I think I had the spring on backwards because it fell off the clip when taking it out.

    I am a bit worried it is going to be even louder with the CPE downpipe, but so be it I supose.

    Def the best sounding exhaust yet. I was bummed about them removing the flap at first but now it makes sense.

    It will be a lot louder. I heard a stock exhaust with a downpipe and it was shockingly loud.
