Try pulling up They have downloads of a couple of exhausts systems and you can hear them at idle and as the car is passing by. It's hard for someone to tell you exactly how an exhaust sounds. If you see a PT on the street with duals, ask them what they have and if they mind you listening as they rev up. Most owners are pretty proud of what they have done and won't mind you asking.

I've heard Borla, Bassani, and PT-Tuning's all in person.

Borlas are quieter than Bassani and PT-Tuning. Bassani's sound more higher pitched like imports than PT-Tuning's or Borlas. I have PT-Tuning, recommend it if you want a deep sound. Recommend Borla for a quieter grumble.

I have the Bassani duals and love the sound - not at all like rice-burners, IMHO. I put my duals on myself - not a big deal at all! I have the Zenon bumper covers fr & rr and ordered my Bassani with the longer exhaust tips. A local friend put the Borlas on his and the sound, to me, is more tinny; plus, he complains about a rumble about 3000 RPM. Like I said, I'm all for tha Bassani's

I have the Borla's and love them. I put them on before putting on the rear cover, now I need to extend the exhaust to fit right. Check that out if you don't want that hassel. Good Luck...

I have the Borla dual exhaust. It sounds nothing like a poser's fart pipe. I got it installed before the Bruizer kit. I had to get the exhaust tips extended to fit the bumper cover. It sounds nice and when extended, fits well too. I like my Borla exhaust and can recommend it. I've not seen, in person, a Bassani, so don't know anything about it. I have pics of the exhaust tips coming out from the bumper cover on my website.
