That sounds so awesome but I wonder if there is a market for that stuff... I mean don't people buy the Genesis sedan for its luxury, not its performance???
I think they will buy both, but I think a lot of people would rather not have too loud of an exhaust like this one. Although the Genesis sedan I hear is pretty quiet inside.

I know myself if I want Luxury I expect it to have performance also. Thats why I got a BMW you get both.
I just find it interesting you expect if to have performance but you haven't done a whole lot of performance things with your car. You need to get your car out on a track and do some autocrossing or drag race it once, just to see what it really can do. Otherwise yer just a poser! ;) Seriously you need to know how to actually DRIVE your car, not just know that it's fast. Next year head out to the autocross with me and Civic when we go and/or take the one day driving school that the Car Club we belong to runs.

I just don't like putting added wear on my car, I've had it almost three years and haven't had to have anything done to it mechanical repair wise or serviced only its 7,000 mile check up and Ipod connection installed. I bet most people with a M3 never take it racing or autocrossing. Its hard to take something you pay $46,000 or more and take a chance you might do something to it. I obsess over it when my mom scratched the back of my front seat leather.

Yeah I understand what you mean but doing an autocross is not going to be a lot harder on a car compared to some curvy mountain roads and not any harder on the engine than driving in stop and go traffic. Because you'd be a beginner you'd probably would never go faster than 30-40mph on any one part of the course and it only lasts from 45-60 seconds of total driving time per round. What you get in return is you learn how to drive your car and learn how it will react in certain situations. That is the single best thing you can do make YOU a better and safer driver in your own car.

The car club we belong to has some SCCA solo drivers and they give you lots of tips on driving. It's actually pretty fun. Plenty of BMW drivers out there. Just give it a try once and you'll see for yourself, it only costs $35 per event.

I know I would be interested in a track event driving course & I figure if the car has M badging on it, it was designed to be driven hard. I just stay on top of my maintainance & repair anything that has breaks. Plus, I bought my car used, over 4yrs old, $20k instead of $60k.

Back on topic, I know most would not want their Genesis sedan to sound like this, but I for one would. Hell, I changed the quiet exaust on my car to one louder, although not quite that raspy.
