Torn between choices..

Hey guys, first post. So, I just recently picked up a silver 5th gen, and it came with some custom parts. One of which is a pretty great sounding exhaust system, but the tip is just rusty beyond belief.. So I am deciding between these two here:
Matt Black Universal Muffler Exhaust 2.5" Inlet Canister Carbon Fiber 4" Tip | eBay

and:

FREE SHIPPING JDM Titanium Burned FIREBALL Stainless Muffler 2.5" Inlet+ 4" TIP | eBay

Thoughts?!

Re: Torn between choices..

I'd say neither. Go after something like a Greddy Ti-C with a cherry bomb glasspack resonator.

Re: Torn between choices..

if ur gonna get a muffler, get a dual tip one. i found a nice one on ebay and it sounds sick. i had to get a dual tip since cops were bothering me wit my 4 inch muffler lol. i had a obx evo style one and i hacked it off and welded this one on. no complaints at all and it looks stock but far from stock. just type in dual 3in tip muffler on ebay.

Re: Torn between choices..

Those are probably gonna rust and sound like crap. Just get a axle back or a better universal muffler. Or maybe try sand blasting and polishing the rusty one? It can be surface rust maybe?

Re: Torn between choices..

U can get a good deal from any auto sport store on the exhaust cannister. I got a high end exhaust system off of ebay. Im very happy with it. Think durability so that what u buy will make u happy for as long as possible. Carbon fiber? No way its real, so its gonna be glued on...thats gonna look like crap due to high heat and weather in no time. Go with stainless steel it looks great and is durable. Good luck.

Re: Torn between choices..

My vote/$.02: just say no to fart cans :-D

I like the idea of going for oem appearance with a better sound/performance. I might try a new glass pack resonator and something twin tipped with a bit more beans on offer before too long. Though I'd love a Mugen Twin Loop system $-/

That's the one that is on the car now, I've been at it for a while now and the polished steel is barely showing now.. It's seriously dirty!

The suggestions are great but some of them (like the Greddy) are way above my price range for now.. I have been using CLR with steel wool. Kinda working, but taking forever. Might be done by end of week!

Re: Torn between choices..

EEEWWWWWW lol. If you clean it and it doesn't get any better, invest in a new one. Try to find out how they sound (Try youtube I guess) and pick the one you like the sound of the most. If you are not in the market for name brand ATM, buy the one you like from those two for now and when you get the cash, do an upgrade .

Oh and out of those two I would do the CF one. Just saying
