Hey guys, I'm a new 2010 CTS Premium owner with 34k miles on it. And LOVE IT! I mean WOW! What a car! Easily the best car I've ever owned! Anyway, I was wondering if anyone has ever put a Flowmaster muffler or any other aftermarket muffler on their car? I used to put them on my other cars and trucks back in the day, however, I'm not sure if it's appropriate on a luxury car. Or, not sure if it will sound right on a sedan. Any feedback is appreciated.

Everyone has a favorite, too. Kinda like which motor oil or which spark plug is the best!

It looks like your question is about replacing just the muffler. I don't think that give will you what you are looking for. You will need a complete cat-back system to avoid cabin drone at part throttle and / or a raspy sound vs. a nice deep rumble. Also do a search on air intake silencer removal. In 15 minutes you can dramatically change the sound of the car, arguably as much as an aftermarket exhaust.

Still, it sounds like the six cylinder engine that it is. Deeper and throatier, yes, but still a six-banger.

After you have tried them all , then get the best Borla. They sound the best and have the best warranty.

This is what I had on my 2009 3.6DI

With JUST the mufflers there was a ton of drone in the cabin, especially the back seat. Ironically removing the gigantic resonator and replacing it with an X-pipe reduced the drone to almost nothing.
