Looks like someone has modified the exhaust. If its a newish car it would not have had one replaced so early.So a modified exhaust might be the answer.
Mines certainly not like that.

These are pics of the ABP exhuast.

There is a version that retains the triangles.





Looks similair..but hard to say for sure.

Perhaps you can ask ABP if they have worked on your car?

Check it out otherwise your insurance may be invalid, but of course you never knew it had been changed especially if Honda don't know a thing

I can't really see from the pics, but at a guess it doesn't look standard to me. What made you wonder in the first place does the car sound really loud? Have you test driven a FN2 anywhere else?

That doesn't look standard to me.

The tail pipes are different than the ones on my standard system, where they come out of the triangles.

Also the drivers side tail pipe is jointed just after it comes out of the back box, yours appears not to be.
