A Good Exhaust For...

***** Moderator Edit *****
Generel exhaust system questions (which is the best, what should I buy, how do you like, etc) are entirely too common around here, and there is no point in answering them over and over again. This thread will serve as the central repository for all general exhaust purchasing related threads and posts. Please read through it before posting, and if you have additional questions post them in this thread. This will help us continue to make the a4 (b5) forum more of a resource with less fragmented information.
All exhaust system threads will be merged into this thread if posted elsewhere in the forum. Specific topics (downpipes, exhaust issues, etc) will still get their own threads.
Exhaust lists, PM robbyb413 or another mod if you want to add/remove/update info or post it in this thread.

A complete borla branded exhaust is 2.25 vs most other exhausts being 2.5 (ideal for most applications) or 3 (ideal for big turbo).

the borla from techtonics tuning is a 2.5" piping. wich is the one i got.

That's not a borla. That's a techtonics tuning exhaust. They happen to use borla mufflers.
Borla:

If you're going to post advice on which exhaust to buy, make sure you know which one you're telling them to buy.

Re: (robbyb413)

wow i guess borla must use some crazy magic piping if the borla with 2.25" and the one from techtonics 2.5 piping and borla muffler doesn't sound alything alike. that's crazy. i'd just rather not spend a grand on an exhaust.

dont get the 2.25 its way to quiet and as rob said you cant do to much to the car before you would need larger piping so go with a 2.5 or custom.

since when Borla is one of the loudest made for our cars...
I have Milltek, I love it, but its expensive, if you have money to throw at things like that, you'll love it, if not, go custom.
Do your research, I spend a few months deciding on what exhaust to buy, by the time I decided, I had $$ for whatever one I wanted.

As I try to merge all these threads together I'm looking for the thread that got to two or three pages with lots of exhaust pics and debates... it was off topic or poorly titled so this particular thread is not coming up with the search. Anyone remember the topic or have it bookmarked so I can pull this thread into it?
