Just browsing the forum and find the stickies(threads) with exhaust systems..
Feedbacks for members here who have some insight about the Borla exhaust?
Been looking around the net and only saw a few company who makes aftermarket exhaust for the 2014+ mazda 3. Like corksport, racing beat and ultimate racing plus Borla.. would love to get more opinion about owners with aftermarket exhaust.
Thank ya'll. More HP!

There are multiple threads about all the different exhausts & opinions already. Do a little more searching in the threads. No need to repeat ourselves.

I love my Borla axle-back so far! Pulling from another thread, here are some sound clips I made for a couple forum members. Even though it's bad iPhone 5s sound quality, hopefully they help somewhat.

"Cold" start in garage:

Daily driving for some vague sound clips, probably won't hear much besides wind but:

I just bought a axel back cork sport. Wasn't looking for performance but more of just a little bit of noise and nicer tips. I really hope its not that loud as Im not into the fart can sounds of 4cyl cars that much. Also much less weight so that's a bonus. Cant wait to get it!

the corksports can be loud but they do have a nice tone. The full catback has a bit of drone, however

I have the corksport (also I'm coming from an Abarth so im a bit spoiled on exhaust sounds). At first it was a little droney on very rare occurances, but since it's built up with carbon it hasn't droned anymore and IMO the perfect daily driver exhaust not too loud not too quiet for most people. It's a bit too quiet for me honestly, I usually compare it to a stock exhaust on a GTI. The prices kind of have me floored though. I'm not sure why these axlebacks cost so much, but I do like mine.

I sat in my friend's car with the corksport axle back and felt it was a nice sound too but felt like i needed more noise so I ended up buying the corksport cat back exhaust and it's so perfect! Nice and loud.
I have a 2015 GTS which is a 6 speed automatic with paddle shifting. The downshift sounds like a sports car approaching a red light. I have not used my sports mode button in months (I used to use it a lot when I didn't have the exhaust)
