Default Exhaust Notes

I have an '06 aero and recently went to the dealership for service. While I was waiting, I was given the chance to test out a new turbo x. what is the main difference on why the turbo x's sound so much better? I thought the main components (minus the XWD) of the two cars were similar, would it have to do with the exhaust system from the downpipe back?

if so, how can i get my hands on the same system for my car?

I tried looking around for some answers on the forum last night, but i could not find any.

thanks.

ask the dealer to order on the system for you.

the whole exhaust system is revised for the turbo x.
BSR sells an exhaust for the 9-3 aero V6 that does sound pretty good.
American retailer for bsr products would be genuinesaab.com

thanks for the responses guys. i kinda figured the BSR exhaust was going to be the way to go. the turbo x really was something to drive, plenty of power and even though it was only 40 when i took it, i had all the windows down and the moonroof vent open to listen. i think i had the car for about 50 minutes and did not even think about turning on the radio once
