i recently volunteered to be the na guinea pig for their race exhaust system for the s5. should be shipping in 3-4 weeks. i will keep you posted on the results.
Did you talk to them about what exactly the race exhaust includes? As best I can tell, you won't be getting any mandrel bent pipes, they will expect you to hack off your OEM mufflers and reuse the stock pipes. Yuck!

Did you get round or oval tips?

Nice car color BTW.

Stock rims look great as they are. If you are short money and feel uncomfortable about getting an exhaust without new wheels, then spend some cash on spacers. They make a HUGE difference in the look of the car. If you have enough cash laying around, then get some new wheels! If done right, they will improve the looks and performance of the car. However, if you get the wheels pushed out, then you will probably want to lower the car because the gap becomes more obvious.

by "if done right" u mean...? Cuz if i upgrade to 20inch and wider tires the car will be slower..
'Done right' to me means using proper wheels, offsets and tires. I'm running 20" wheels with 275/30 tires that actually are lighter than stock. Indeed the additional weight is further away from the axle, but the savings in weight from the wheels is enough to experience an improvement in acceleration. When I say proper, I mean you should only buy a quality forged wheel and not some crummy cast replacement or a poor quality forged wheel.
