Default Get exhaust tone with cheap ebay exhaust?

I have a 99 A4 2.8. My biggest complaint is the lack of exhaust tone. All the exhaust systems for my car are very expensive when all I want is it to be a little louder. Wondering what you guys think of a cheap system like the following on eBay? Has anyone used something like this on their B5?

why dont you just buy a universal borla/magnaflow/remus etc etc muffler, and go to an exhaust shop and get them to weld some pipes up

there is a place around my house that will do a full 2.5" exhaust for like $250

it depends on how much you want to spend, what sound you want. You tube is your friend, look up some videos and se which one you like best.

I will tell you this though
magnaflow: ~150
Remus ~600 or something like that just for the muffler
borla - not quite sure but probably comparable to Magnaflow

also if you look in the newbie A4 guide on the main A4 page you'll find some more info/ sound clips of different exhaust notes.

the Magnaflow 14815 and 14816 with your resonator still installed will give you a nice deeper tone for sure. You can get these for about $150 on ebay.

they don't make borla mufflers for the 2.8. Remus is real good but pricey. For the price a magnaflow muffler is great.

how do they not make a borla muffler for the 2.8? all you do is just match the size of the piping diameter and make sure there are no clearance issues. and a custom job would be better/cheaper than anything from ebay
