Skunk2 vs Megan vs cheap eBay cat back

I have a 06 ex coupe and want to get a good exhaust. I have been looking at the skunk2 for a while but saw a megan for almost the same price. Which one sounds better or would it just be better to get a cheap one from eBay?

I haven't had any issues with my eBay exhaust other than it being super Loud at 70+mph.
But instead of getting a cheap ebay exhaust, have you considered buying a muffler and have it welded on?

I'd stick with the Skunk2 unit just from my experience I feel they have better quality products in general. We have their 60mm exhaust in stock for $495.99 not including shipping.

Don't get the eBay exhaust. I ran a spec-d catback for almost a year before getting a tsudo. The spec-d had extremely thin flanges that bent when tightened against the gaskets so it leaked until I added some silicone gasket maker. The hangers were all slightly off, so it rattled no matter what adjustments I (or the local muffler shop) made. It droned like all hell too, not just highway bwahhh noise, but actual earsplitting, sperm killing resonance. You probably won't find a new Megan catback either, I would have preferred the Megan oe-rs catback, but they were back ordered everywhere I looked.
