That's a great question. One probably not asked often enough. The issue I'm concerned with is how the sound varies when heard from a distance outside the car vs the way it sounds reverberating in the cabin. What may sound wonderful to some from outside may sound awful to the same people from the inside. I suppose it's that difference that I'm concerned about.

For instance I love my friend's M5 with aftermarket exhaust. Sounds amazing. When we go to big car meets, lots of people look when they hear his car and I haven't yet seen a disapproving expression. But on the long drive he'll sometimes flip the switch that changes the exhaust note so that it doesn't drone inside the cabin.

He also flips the switch to the quieter mode whenever we're in residential out of respect for those who might not be auto enthusiasts. So as you said... gotta think about others.

Interior resonance is much louder and has drone than exterior sound. Obvious

tbh this sound deading stuff is not a solution for me as it weights a ridiculous amount and the adhesive used is plain messy when trying to remove, you'll never remove the residue without removing the paint, i under theese are seen surfaces but still... seems a shame imo.

stick in the silencers for day to day use and uncork it for the track and when you want SOUND.. job done.

weighs about 1lb. no adhsives. 15-20% reduction in drone. some will say this exhaust is to loud and some want it louder. its all preference in the end. any "louder" exhaust will drone. even my stromung had highway drone, but it was too quiet on the road for my tastes.
