I just installed a thermal R&D - from the audio clips and overall design it seems quite similar to the MBRP, however a little more $ and no X crossover. The Thermal is polished 304 SS
The videos of that exhaust sound awesome. I like the deeper sound. Looks like they take a lot of efforts to eliminate drone. Is there any drone from your perspective?

I sure wish they made one for the g70, but somehow a g70 site is a Kia stinger site.

Thermal makes great exhaust systems they are engineered exhaust systems. They are not going to have drone.

I also like the deeper tone. I'd characterize it as very little drone. It's more than stock, but not annoying and only in one condition I've observed - about 1700rpm on a slight incline on a highway. Nobody else in the car has mentioned a "drone" so it may just be me looking for it because people talk about it on these forums with other exhaust systems. The solve for drone seems to be applying sound deadening material in the trunk, so no big deal if it were to bother someone. I'm happy with the exhaust - it still surprises me because it is quiet at low RPM then when you get on it sounds excellent and louder than you were used to (but not too loud) so I do get pleasantly reminded it's there when I give it some gas. From audio clips I feel like it sounds similar to MBRP...thermal costs a couple hundred more, but is nice and polished 304. Welds look nice too

I'm debating between the Borla S-type and the ARK GRIP but the Grip it's like $600 more than the Borla's.
WTH????

Hi, sorry to ask a question that may have already been asked - I'm looking for a bimodal exhaust that integrates with the mode selection on the stinger. Ideally no louder than it is already while in comfort mode and something a little sportier for sport mode. Are there any options out there available in the UK?

I'm don't really want an aftermarket exhaust, but if I did, this dedicated KIA Stinger site is certainly the place to look for one.

You can look for a DPW exhaust system.
I pulled the trigger too fast on the Borla's and now I think they are too loud. Lol comes with age but with DPW you can select when to have the noise and when not.
