Sorry, no exhaust clip.
Iíve had the exhaust redone four times since, it was just too boomy.
I ended up changing the mufflers, and adding two more mufflers inline.

My wife thinks itís still too loud, but itís fine with me.
Just the right amount of growl....and small amount of drone at highway. Iíll try to get some idle and rev videos.

The rear end looks perfect! I wish that's how the 15 - 17 TLX's came from factory

just a few tips;

cold starts always sound horrible...
try to get a start up when the engine has already been warmed! it will sound better!

2nd thing; Revvin' in Neutral will always sound horrible and not a true representation of how it sounds under load.

Appreciate the comments...
1st, this is not a cold start
2nd, I don't have anything to record the exhaust sound while driving, so revving in neutral is the next best thing.
I do agree that this is not a reflection of what the car sounds like while driving, the sound being much better while driving.

The cold start on the TLX is nothing compared to my e39 M5...
