A lot of people really favor the Fast Intentions CBE with the Berk HFC. Which exhaust to purchase is an EXTREMELY personal choice though which makes it very difficult to know what's best for you. You really cannot simply go by what someone else thinks is best. Your best bet is to go to your local car shows/meets and physically hear the setups that other Z owners have. Your next option obviously is to listen to the sticky Exhaust Clip Database:

The Invidia Gemini for cost and looks I only paid 750 for one that retailed for 1250.

I have the GT HAUS CBE (tail piece) and it sounds mean. No drone in the cabin but if you get up into the 3.5+ RPMS it screams! Still debating on getting the mid or not. Most HP gain comes from that but IDK about the noise lol.

I have the Agency Power CBE and love it. At a couple of the meets Iíve taken a few people for rides so they can hear what the exhaust sounds like in while in the car.

The Meisterschaft is way too loud so unless you track or live out in the boonies I would not get it. JMHO been there done that got the loud exhaust letter from HOA.

Check out the sticky on the top of the Exhaust section for videos and do the homework. You will find the right one.

Sorry folks, but Invidia is the way to go in terms of looks, cost, and sound. It's the goldilocks of exhausts... juuuuuuuuuust right in every category mentioned

See my thread for more pics and sound clips.

I have the Fast Intentions Long Tube Headers and CBE and couldn't be happier.

But Exhausts is purely subjective and it all depends. Do your research before just signing off because someone else really likes their setup.
