Multiple Design Iterations

Multiple designs were created, tested and daily driven to create an axleback exhaust that balances performance, sound, and looks. The extended dual tip section was chosen for its unique low/mid RPM rumble compared to having a split at the tips.

This is exhaust is definitely the deepst of any ND exhaust I've heard, a huge plus for me. No drone on the highway with a very mellow growl that gets gradually louder all the up to redline. Zero highway drone to boot! This truly is my goldilocks exhaust.

Took me three different ND exhausts to find one that I was truly happy with. I had the CS catback on my 2008 3 and it's in my top 3 favorite exhaust sounds of anything I've heard. Should've gone with CS from the start again!
Very nice quality and sound. I've sold them to two customers by letting them hear my car.
Excellent sound! Was exactly what I needed after installing my header. A harmonious balance! The intake and exhaust absolutely brought my car to life after my header was installed! A wonderful exhaust setup! A+++
Just took my first drive after installing the corksport axle back. Sound is very tame but nice and deep for a 2.0L. Very quite during normal driving. When accelerating hard it has a really nice mid range aggressive sound. Great sound quality and quieter than I expected. This is actually a good thing because I hope to add header and midpipe later on. The exhaust fit great and looks great too. Nice smooth bends and nice welds and quality exhaust tips. Overall I'm impressed with this exhaust and have no regrets. It's always a gamble if you hadn't heard an exhaust in person. I liked the deeper midrange sound on the corksport video and am happy to say the exhaust delivered.

Hi, I already have the (very nice by the way) axle back muffler on my 2017 Miatia, is it possible to order the midpipe sections by itself seperatly to upgrade the axle back exhaust, or is it only available as the full catback exhaust system? Price estimate and order reference ? Yep does not really answer my question... No yet reply on my information request on the site, also not on my "old school letter". Kind regards, TJ.

Will this fit the 1.5?

If I purchase just the muffler, is it possible to get the midpipe by itself at another time, or is it only available with the full catback exhaust system?
