most people want to be loud with there **** cans, but im gonna step on the other side and want to be as quiet as possible.

stock is sorta loud already,

anyone know of an aftermarket exhaust system that is more quiet than stock?

Nope. Good luck finding one. Pretty much anything out there currently is either slightly louder, or, obviously very loud.

Looks like you'll have to go custom on that. I hear Remus makes quiet mufflers until you get on them.

Add a whole buncha catalytic converters, and mufflers to it? Shoot man, I'm not a mechanic. Your best bet is to research and find the quietest muffler. Talk to a few exhaust geeks and find out if a smaller size pipe will quiet it up. Stock, this is the quietest car I've owned. Before this, all of my cars also had stock exhaust. Good luck man.

You aren't likely to find anything even quiter. If you want something just as quiet as stock (or quiter) at idle, but with a better tone under load, check out the options from Tanabe. If I hadn't gone to a full Magnaflow cat-back for the wife's car I was considering the Tanabe Touring Medalion.

^ not a good idea ugly frog

rton20s ur right, its fine at idle, but when u accelerate it is very loud, maybe i have to break my car in, because i have only 8 miles right now because i just bought it last night.

how long is the break in period so i can stop granny driving the car

If you build a cat-back system with two high flow mufflers and a resonator you will probably have a rather quiet exhaust.

Nothing out there is going to be quieter than stock unles you have like 5 mufflers. Plus if you want your xB quieter than stock you will hurt performance.

yeah there was a thread here somewhere that a person listed many styles of aftermarket exhausts and their dbs. I think a couple scored lower than the stock muffler. Check it out
