Corsa Exhaust Report

Flew to Cleveland last Saturday to pick up my car with new Corsa exhaust. I went on a quick tour of the Corsa factory; that place is is stainless steel heaven. You could eat off the floors; it was that clean.
Now to my impression of the Corsa exhaust. In a nutshell-I could not be happier. On cold start-up, the M5 sounds mean! When you accelerate; there is no mistake that the M5 does not have a stock exhaust system. My overall impression is that the Corsa really makes the car come alive. My favorite aspect of the Corsa exhaust is when I am cruising on the interstate. The Corsa exhaust is absolutely as quite as the stock exhaust! I mean it is not any louder than stock on the highway. Drop down a couple gears to pass-and it comes alive again.
I am 49 years old and I realize that my impression is very much subjective. I can tell you that "back in the day" I had ZR-1 Corvettes, Z-28 Camaros, etc. and I wanted an exhaust on those cars that I could always hear. That does not interest me these days. I do not feel the need to announce my arrival wherever I go. I have had many aftermarket exhausts in the past. The Corsa exhaust, in my opinion is truly unique in that they have engineered in there exhaust systems a product that eliminates any trace of highway drone. I have found the last exhaust company I will ever use.

Great write up. I feel that same way about the corsa. The funny thing is I have it on a totally different car than yours and the results are the same.

6.1 liters of fun!

Can you give your opinion on how the exhaust actually sounds when you step on it? Is it a higher pitched (ie. Eisenmann, Dixis, etc) or lower pitched (SuperSprint, Dinan, etc) sound?

I can't give my opinion on how it compares to other exhaust systems because I have not heard them in person. I will get some pics of the tips up soon. Also, the weight of the Corsa muffler is 19-20 lbs. Stock mufflers weigh around 33-34 lbs.
