Default A7 Performance exhaust

Has anyone installed a performance exhaust on an A7? I am looking at the AWE product and would like some feedback from an actual user. If there is another system worth looking at please let me know.
Thanks

I got the quad tip awe touring exhaust back in Malay. Love it. Note that I have an ibis white car. About 2 weeks after washing, have to quick detail the rear third of the car (beginning just behind the rear door) as it is a grey quarter panel and bumper. Even with about 5 k post install.

Ive just had the AWE Quad installed on my A7 3.0T

You definitely know its not a stock exhaust thats fitted, but not in a bad way. It quietly growls while sitting at idle, and when you punch the gas is positively roars.

Ive done about 300 miles highway driving so far, and while there is some cabin noise, its not too intrusive.

I fitted the S7 valance, as most people do, however I had mine carbon wrapped before it was installed.

Note that the exhaust needed some adjustments after about 50 miles of running, as it settled into position. There was some metal to metal contact vibrations which took a few minutes of final adjustment.

Will post up some pics once Ive finished my (small list of) mods :-)

Thanks JW I appreciate the feedback. I have a premium model so I will be running duals vs the quad. Evidently the S valence won't fit the premium models. I assume the sound will be comparable.
