Go for it, install it, and post a youtube video for us to compare it with the Remus :-)

I'm still leaning towards the Remus, $540 sans tips, delivered ... and go with a pair of eBay-ed ersatz tips.

But first I have a NOS pair of MB Quart Reference speakers and matching amp sitting in the den crying to be let out of their boxes and installed ... which in turn requires I first decide what sound-deadening to use in the doors.

Me, an hour of planning for every minute of doing :-(

$600 is a lot of money for a poor, retired school teacher :-(

However, if you can't be electric quiet, you need a little rumble in your wagon, don't you agree?

It's installed. It went really easy and the only thing I did different is that I put polyurethane exhaust mounts where the factory rubber ones would have went. I did this because with an aftermarket exhaust there's only two rubbers holding it in the back and that actually holds up most of the middle of the exhaust going under the car too. Polyurethane mounts will make sure everything is nice and secure.

The sound is perfect. It's just a nice low rumble not too loud at all and there is no drone. I guess that's why they use the staggered resonators so that they could tune the exhaust to the point that there wouldn't be drone. It actually sounds almost exactly like my Mazdaspeed 3 did when it was stock maybe a little bit more like stock with a race pipe where the second cat was. Like I said it's actually perfect.

I tried to take a video in 4k, and while it turned out beautiful the sound was too muffled because I had used a microfiber towel and a chair to hold up my phone and I think it covered the mics too much. I'll try to get a better video later and post it to YouTube.

Sorry for the dirty car in the pics...
