To be fair, looks and sound cost big money, and just the looks were free.
And, if we're going to get into that debate, then we could even go as far as saying that just looks and sound is sort of tacky, and that if you want a true exhaust system you'd need looks, sound, and performance. Therefore, you'd need a full catback setup. For me, I want all or none. I'm happy with the looks until I can afford to drop $1300 on a full setup. Just the sound with nothing to back it up is kind of weak, IMO. Axlebacks are kind of like glorified/expensive fart cans. You only modify the acoustics, not how the engine breathes.
