Default After-market exhaust on the Roadster?

Anyone out there add an after market exhaust to their Roadster ( Greddy, Nismo, Tanube, FI, etc)? I have been very torn........ the Roadster is so classy. I would never want to de-class it in any way. Let's post our thoughts or experiences with exhausts if there are any.

Did the NISMO S-Tune on my Roadster but it was too quiet for me. Recently installed the F.I. 12" and the sound is perfect for me. Sounds even better when the top is down.

I have the OEM Nismo exhaust on mine and love it. I had the Invedia Gemini and it was too loud for me.

Good luck with your search!

I thought about this to before I put my Berk on, but I'm loving it. It's quiet when I'm driving normal around town or on the highway, but gets loud once you get on it. And the Berk loud isn't really loud, but enough to make you realized you're driving a sports car.

I have a Nismo, but I can't hear it over the SC so I will just stick with it as the supercharger sounds bad A$$

OEM NISMO on my roadster. Nice burble over stock but its still a tad understated for my tastes: I want to hear my sports car without it being a fart pipe/annoyance. Fine line sometimes.

Without being overpowering Id prob have to say Berk, Stillen or possibly the Indivia.

BVL, consider throwing some HFC's on your roadster, they will most surely open up the sound of the Nismo CBE

I have the Invidia Gemini exhaust w/ cnt racing HFC and I love the sound it produces. I was a little worried at first that I might get some rasp, but after I installed it, I have enjoyed every second of driving.

Just installed Stillen CBE and HFC's on my friends roadster this last weekend. Sounds very nice indeed.
