So far mild is wining... (by one vote) anybody else got an opinion?

The main reason for the poll is cause I am about to purchase an exhaust an cannot decide what would sound better?

Cheers guys!

mild steel sounds much better for V8's, much deeper gruntier note, stainless sounds tinny, its way too expensive the only reason its good is because it lasts for alot longer than mild steel, but are you going to keep your same exhaust for over 5 years? doubt it, then mild will be fine and even if you do have to replace it then its half the price of "wank factor" stainless steel

mild allways sounds better stainles has a ping to it and sound seams to eminate through the pipe walls a lot .a well built mild system with the pipe seam not at the bottom of the pipe lengths will last 10 years with ease
