Yeah - and the way it was meant to be heard is INSIDE the car!

Though that's yet another thing that puzzles me about the loud pipes/nice engine sound school. So they get what they think is a "nice" (which usually means louder than stock) sound out of the exhaust, then crank up the stereo until until they drown it out. Seems as sensible as turning up the A/C while leaving the windows rolled down.
