Two days ago I had installed a custom made exhaust in my S5. The whole system is made out of 2.5 inch stainless steel pipes, dual magnaflow muffler and racing industries tips.I had the exhaust installed without the resonator thinking about a better performance, but if anyone wants to install a resonator it is not an issue. My friend owns an S5 with the milltek exhaust and yesterday we compared his to the one that I have and mine turned out sounding a lot better. The best thing is that my friend spent $1799 for the exhaust and $250 for the istallation while I only paid $900 including installation. The shop I went to is one of the best at custom made exhausts in the city, everything is done with precision. They have a huge selection in mufflers, pipes and tips, if anyone is interested I have the contact info.
I will upload the sound of my custom made exhaust soon.
Below are the pictures

WHOA! That sounds really nice. Personally, I prefer the quad mufflers, but it sounds GOOD!

great sound, I love the ovals. Can you post more pictures of your car? Are those black housing headlights?

Sound- 10
Look-2

Sounds like it keeps the low bass rumble of the stock unit but increases the volume. Nice ....

thnx the video and the sound was taken by a picture camera, in person it definitely sounds bassier and louder ( I've been thinking of installing a short 8 inch magnaflow resonator).

Nice, shame the videos can't put across it's sound properly. I know what it's like videos never do the sounds any justice.

Good to see you trying to do something different too.

Sounds good, I would love to hear even a miltek in person and compare it to stock.

Must go to one of these APS meets sometime soon.

I found videos with magnaflow cutback exhaust istalled in an RS4

Why can't someone make an S5 with an exhaust that sounds exactly like that? I mean, the two cars basically have the same engine.

Oh, and I listened to all S5s exhausts I could find, STaSIS, AWE, Milltek, GMG, and I thought that the AWE was closest to the one on the RS4 (which is, as I said, what I loved), followed by STaSIS, Milltek, and then GMG.

I haven't heard the GMG in person, but I can't help but think that it HAS to sound better in real life than that lame clip on youtube. If I was GMG, I'd replace it with a proper sounding one. Then again, maybe it really is that lame.

WOW! That revised video is much, MUCH better than the previous one... and yeah, I too think the first one was pretty lame. ;)

dciostek20...the shop that made your exhaust, would they make one for a A5 also? I'm guessing they would for the right price. Really nice sound on yours, but the video i think doesnt do it justice.

they can make a custom exhaust to any car ( they give a lifetime warranty on the exhaust) and when it comes to the sound of my exhaust you would need to hear it in person - it sounds sick!!!!, I took the videos with a picture camera I'll post more videos with a better sound quality...
(my exhaust sounds pretty close to the video below, maybe a little bit louder, if it's to loud for you, you can install resonators)

pretty nice custom work dude. i love the tinted tails. what did u do them with?

i personally think the Milltek sounds better. I don't personally care for the loudness...i prefer the lower and deeper growl of an exhaust. I plan on having my exhaust custom done as well.

nice work reguardless.
