    Remote controled...

    First: yes, I tried to read all relevant posts about this (of course, I probably missed many...).
    Second: yes, I listened to zillions videos on Youtube.

    I want to install an remote controlled exhaust during winter (car is in storage this winter); Right now I only have the pressure line to the valves disconnected (thanks to marvelous threads on R8Talk). The remote would be a must around my neighborhood.

    If I'm not too confused, my choices are Capristo, Akrapovic & Kreissieg, in ascending pricing order.

    Kreisseg sounds nice but price is prohibitive; even if I prefer F1 biased exhausts than musclecar biased ones.
    Carpristo is difficult to compare to Akrapovic for sound from the video I listened to.
    I know Capristo is better priced, but I just love the carbon exhaust tips that come with Akrapovic (not available alone in North America).
    I love the sound of TubiStyle, but the valves are not remote controlled...

    To be short, guys, HELP? THXS!!!

    So, guys, any preference toward Akrapovic vs. Capristo for a V10 to get a more "exotic"/F1 style sound ??

    Re: Remote controled...

    From my research on exhausts.. The only exhaust manufacture that has that high pitch F1 sound is the Kreissieg... The othes are more of a brutal deep muscle growl/howl...Tubi sorta has a higher pitched sound for about half the cost of the Kreissieg
