Default S8 Exhaust Upgrade?


Having driven the S8 for a while, now i want to play with the car a little bit. First, is there any not too expensive exhaust system for S8? When I drive it with regular "D"mode, I do not hear anything... I would like to add some "growl".

Any suggestions?

I guess I'm in a slightly different camp: I'd like a bit more 'growl' when my S8 is in sport mode, but keep the wonderful stock quietude of the car when in drive mode (so as to fully enjoy the Bang & Olufsen system). Call it succumbing to the 'Goldilocks' syndrome.

My guess is that no such exhaust mod exists ...

You could put a switch in line for the valve that controls the exhaust flaps. This would give it a little more grunt on the end, instead of just opening up when you get on it...
