I am (soon) going to have a 987.2 base cayman. I want to adjust the exhaust sound to be a bit more throaty - but don't think I need a full exhaust. I've heard Borlas on youtube and I'd be satisfied with 25% of that.
I have a chance to get the Fabspeed tips. Note, these are supposedly more than just for the looks. Fabspeed Motorsport - Not Found (play the youtube video, I don't think I hear a diff)
Instead, I can save up to get a full exhaust of some sort. But I don't want to spend more than $1000.00 either way. Certainly the tips won't cost that much - but if they don't make any noticeable change in sound and are just for the looks, well then this is almost pointless.
Another route I have is going to a custom pipe bending shop and giving them a thousand to work some custom magic. But I'd rather spend less and get even just a bit more sound (and looks).
