    I just took delivery of my 720S and love the car -it's fabulous in every way except for the exhaust note. I have sport exhaust but the car doesn't have enough of an exhaust note for my liking. I get that some people like how it sounds and/or like it quieter but form me I'd like more of an aural signature. I hear the factory is working on a new louder exhaust that can presumably be retrofitted. I'm curious to learn which of the after market companies have done the best job on the 12C/650 cat-back exhaust systems. Looking for feedback on quality of product, quality of sound (not just loud), etc... Basically looking to see who to follow as the new options make it to market.

    Sports exhaust sounds pretty darn loud from outside the car. Inside not so much in part because of the cabin in well insulated from sound. For me the OEM sport exhaust it is ideal as my wife will complain about the noise.

    There are already a couple USA made 675LT-type exhaust systems (x-pipe, no muffler), available with or without HJS sport cats. I have not heard them in person but they should be louder with better tone like the LT. Unobtainium, DMETuning, and VelocityAP have 720S exhausts in development, as I'm sure the usual aftermarket manufacturers do... there will be plenty of choices

    Exhaust videos are usually useless but Fabspeed did post a few. I don't think the USA cars have the backfire 'feature' like in the Manhart video posted above.

    I have a spider on order with the sports exhaust. I may be interested in a exhaust upgrade as well but 1. Want to hear how mine sounds in person. 2. I don't want constant droning noise in the car if I upgrade. 3. I had the exhaust valve switch in my 458 which was perfect for me. I wish the 720 had that option.
