Help me pick an exhaust please.

Going for a lower budget exhaust, tried on YouTube but very hard to get reliable idea of sound.

Choices are narrow as don't want to spend more than 500, maybe 600. Don't want anything too loud, can be little louder idle and low revs, and don't mind good VTEC volume, but still not anything too mad.

I am looking at...

DC Sports
Tegiwa
Milltek
Invidia

Any help would be great. Also research I have done may not be reliable hence asking here!

Thanks all.

From experience, Teg one would be ideal but not heard the others. I've personally owned 3 different ones now.

PS.

Research so far shows...

Invidia lower quality, loud low revs, not so loud VTEC, so prob bin that idea.
Milltek resonated no gains, non resonated too loud.

Tegiwa some say not too loud, some say very, unsure who actually makes the system?
Know nothing of DC Sports system.

Sounds really good and doesn't drone like Toda or give you ear bleed like the invidia. I replaced my HKS and the volume is very liveable without being too boy racerish like wiggy.

OEM, Martelius, Tegiwa, Meercat (Custom)

The Tegiwa one was louder than OEM but not once did I ever think it was intrusive into the cabin and it had a nice grunt on VTEC.
I actually changed it because it was too quiet for me but its definitely suitable for someone who wants a louder than OEM but not going to annoy the neighbour volume.
It is also pretty cheap at less than 500. It's a copy of the Fujitsubo one and I believe made in UK.
I actually just sold it on here to another member.

Liking idea of tegiwa at mo.
Do TDI south do the TDI exhaust, as don't see it on their site?

Does leave DC sports as possible still?

Will get it fitted by the garage.

Looking at TDI south, euro spec, or tgm sport, all seem to have a good rep.

Tegiwa system is ideal for what your after, check the link below I have put some videos up of it fitted with the standard manifold.

The tdi north system with a manifold is quite loud and drones in the cabin at 70mph. I had this fitted with the stage 1 cams to get the best out of them the system works really well and does what I wanted it to just could do with being a bit quiter.
