Anyone With Borla or Corsa Exhaust in Seattle Area?

Get everyone, I bought an 09.5 G8 GT a few months ago, and am looking to get either a Corsa or Borla exhaust at some point. Is there anyone in western Washington with one of these cat backs that would be willing to meet up so I could see what it sounds like in person?

Thanks,

Jeremy

I've got a Corsa, but also Kooks LTs, so it probably isn't what you are looking for.

I have Corsa catbacks that I installed at 6K last year. I'll be at the Krispie Kreams Puyallup tonight, Friday, about 9pm if you want to swing by.

Roto-Fab CAI, Kooks Long Tubes, and Corsa. I don't think the Long Tubes really changed the sound of the Corsa that much.

Thanks for the replies guys. 08G8V8 and Christiancoach, I wouldn't mind meeting up sometime to hear, but I know that the LTs increase the sound output substantially. I'd specifically like to hear what it sounds like with just the cat back since that is all i will be doing for a daily driver.

BBBBGXP I'll send you a PM to get your contact info. i don't know if I will make it down to Puyallup tonight but I would love to meet up sometime and hear your Corsa.

Thanks!

Jeremy

Not sure where in the Seattle area you are located, but I'm in the north Edmonds area(Lynnwood/Mukilteo area). Let me know if you want to meet up sometime.

Jeremy,
You pass by me every day. I am in Mountlake Terrace. More than happy to take you for a spin so you can hear her.

Thanks Tony that sounds like a plan. I think I saw your car at a car show in Lynnwood last year. Love the Holden conversion.

Met up with Jeff today and he gave me a ride. Love the Corsa sound especially with the headers. Nice car Jeff! I will be looking for a Corsa at some point, especially considering how tame it is inside unless you want it to be loud.

Thanks,

Jeremy

All I heard of is that Corsa is expensive and drone free. How does it sound?

It is expensive but sounds amazing, and is completely drone free (even with longtube headers). Loud when you want it, and you can drive at 60 without even knowing you have aftermarket exhaust. I will be buying the Corsa when I get an exhaust.

Hi. If you want to hear the sounds of that catback in person, you should purchase one so that you can hear it forever.
