Question Strange sound from a Honda....

I was at PepBoys and on the way out I saw a riced up Honda, but this one was a little different. It had dual exhaust that looked like Harley style looking. It sounded almost just like a harley, not as loud of course. Now I dont like Hondas at all, but this was the best sounding one I have ever heard... Anyone seen/heard this before?

the DTM's sound pretty good, doesnt sound like the typical coffee-can lawnmower-buzz that people constantly stereotype us for, do you know what car it was? theres a nice-sounding tanabe dual that sounds good on the lude, and if you mean dual mufflers then the accord v6 GReddy exhaust sounds DAMN nice too

I saw a Civic with a Prelude 2.2L engine in it at a car show before. It sounded pretty good. Then again at that point its not really a Civic now is it? The owner said he was looking to go forced induction as well. That part confused the hell out of me. No idea how he was going to shoe-horn that turbo in it or get the power to the ground without burning up his tires but he seemed to be determined.

Being a Honda guy m'self, I should know what it was... but I don't. I do know that the Accords (at least the Coupes) have a really sweet-looking dual exhaust, not sure how it sounds...

A silver Accord coupe would've been my choice, if I could've had the V6 with a stick. Fat chance, no such luck. So the Subaru will be mine in a few days.

Not like I'm complaining.

Cool

I generally dislike aftermarket exhausts, specially for a car with a 1.6L!! But for the Si, the Mugen twinloop sounds good (almost like stock when cruising, deep bassy when punching it) or the greddy power extreme which sounds like a turbo exhaust (low and deep bassy, not bee like or buzzy at all)
Now if stromung made an exhaust for my car i would be happy
