No disrespect taken. I guess it all depends on what you consider valuable. I did not like the tone or the tips of the oem exhaust, so I went aftermarket. Also, I did not want to cut the oem as I want to keep it, and don't want to weld to replace axle back if I needed to reinstall.
In my research, all of the full exhausts came out to be roughly the same cost, save RPI. So, given the choice between Eisenmann, Meisterschaft, and Akra, I chose Akra.
I guess the same thing can be said about watches. Some people buy timex, others Patek Philippe. Last time I checked they tell time exactly the same way, and one is way less expensive, but the latter prized for its workmanship and design.
