Racing Beat axle-back (FWD) installed

Product: Power Pulse Exhaust for 2015-18 Mazda CX-3 2.0L 2WD Only - Racing Beat

It finally came in! I wanted something slightly sportier sounding, but not obnoxiously loud since this car is not a rocket ship to begin with. I've got a HEMI Ram for that. Installation was very simple. Remove 4 exhaust hangers. Use some silicone spray to make them slip off easier. Remove two 14mm nuts at the flange as well as the old gasket. Install the new gasket (included with the kit), new 14mm bolts and nuts at the flange, and slip the 4 exhaust hangers back on. It took me all of 30 minutes.

Mission: accomplished. It sounds great and just slightly louder than stock. I'll get some sound clips soon, but here are some pictures for now.

It looks pretty good! How much lighter is it compares to stock? I would like to get it, but I am afraid of drone and loudness.

It's about 20 pounds. It's definitely lighter than stock.

Don't worry about loudness or done at all. This exhaust could easily be a factory 'sport' version sold as a dealer accessory. No drone or obnoxiousness at all. It reminds of the OEM exhaust from my 2011 Honda Civic Si.

I can purchase that at Mazda? Would you happen to know the cost? I really like how the screen is not just the full black looking GPS navigation. I have a samsung note 9 so hope mine would like as fancy as that.
