after many months of waiting, mugen exhaust finally arrived. Mugen Sports Silencer(18000-XMR-K0S0). It only took me an hour to install, maybe less if I didn’t have to loosen the bolts on my trailer hitch.

As mentioned before from
another mugen exhaust owner, not much noticeable increase in noise compared from the oem exhaust, maybe a slight deeper/rich tone but not much - purely cosmetic!

Yup US$1000 for that beautiful muffler!

Mugen exhaust stuff is amazing but extremely pricey.

It sounds super quiet. I wonder if you got rid of the lame exhaust resonator like I did.
It's the ugly cannister under the passenger door. Couple of bucks for a muffler shop to get rid of it.
Plus more ground clearance.

It will give your exhaust more attitude with your new Mugen muffler.
And with your 6 speed manual, it will sound way better than with the lame CVT trans.

That is about 4% of the sticker price of a new HRV - and zero performance valve.
Looks great but that is all.

If it's just the aesthetics you're after, the European HR-V Sport (1.5 Turbo) came with chromed exhaust tips on it's twin exhaust. You could purchase the tips, attach one to the end of the exhaust, and attach the second one either by bolting or welding it on.

That will save you a pretty penny in buying the silencer.

I wonder if its the same as the "exhaust finisher" that comes on the upper trims (I think the EX has it, but I know my Touring has this "finisher").

zero performance valve.
…i already knew and was not expecting any performance gain when I purchased my exhaust. Just like everything I’ve installed on my HR-V, it’s for looks only. I do drive my HR-V to the mountains a lot for camping and drive it “off road” but by no means crawling over rocks. I’m also not planning on getting this HR-V under 10 seconds on 1/4 mile.

been a fan of mugen since the 90s and I simply wanted one

That was the point of my suggestion of deleting the mid exhaust resonator.

The Mugen exhaust will not add power and it doesn't sound like it changes the exhaust tone very much at all.
So US$1000 for nice looking dual exhaust tips.

But if you delete the exhaust resonator also, at least you will some exhaust note to go with the nice looking dual exhaust tips!
