I purchased my first Elise not too long ago and I'm fairly confident that it currently has a stage II exhaust because all of the sound clips that I have heard of stock exhaust sound are too quiet. Love the sound of current exhaust but its ugly. I saw a Larini 8in at a track event earlier this week and loved the look but I've heard good things about VF too. I have it narrowed down to these two exhaust. Key features I'm looking for...

MUSTmaintain the exhaust pops/burps
Little/NO drone
Quiet cold starts
Not loud, deep tone

What should I do.....:UK:

It's ugly? The Stage II looks exactly like stock (2 tips / diffuser exit).

Maybe its just me. I have the Reverie CF diffuser also so maybe thats throwing off the look of the exhaust. I hate to say it because I feel like a ricer but I don't know if I am willing to give up the burps/pops, just sounds amazing. Any VF users have any input??

VF is not diffuser exit right?

I have the larini 8" on my exige and had a s2 on my elise. The larini is noticably quiter and about perfect loundness level for me. It is loud enough so you know its there but quite enough your ears arnt ringing.

WOW! Did an oil change yesterday and come to find out I have in fact have a Larini SE Exhaust with slash tips and the matching sport cat. The owner sold to me as "stock" and FLOW Lotus SC said it was stock expect for a aftermarket filter(bought sight unseen). I've never heard a stock Elise before so didn't know any better but figured it could be that loud stock. Great exhaust though...
