I got the concept G., can't tell you much on the Medalion.

To me the exhaust is not too quiet nor too loud. Perfect
for my daily commute. Fit and finish is great.

The exhaust does hang low and come out in a slight angle.
Better throttle response, but my butt dyno didn't feel any
power gain. I mainly chosed this exhaust to save a little
weight and throttle response.

i have the medallion and love it. Im kinda over the whole canister style exhaust. The only other exhaust i would trademine for is the RSR c&k.

BTW both the concept G and medallion fit the USDM fit with no mods. I saved you a call to tanabe

I hate the fart can look, I went with the medalion and have not looked back, the price is kinda steep but its direct fit and the sound is just amazing. You only hear it at startup and 3200+rpms, but you feel it all the way

I just installed the Medalion Touring and was pleasantly surprised how quiet it is. At first I thought it was almost too quiet. Not really all that much louder than stock. It seems to be a little louder with a few miles on it now.
Just a nice mellow low tone, not at all raspy...........certainly does not turn heads from the noise.

At any speed in the car, the sound never intrudes inside the car.

As far as fitting to the car, it took about 15 minutes. I have ramps, so I raised the car up which made working on it much easier. I reused the gasket at the flange. I put a light coating of high temperature silicone on it to insure a good seal.

The only thing I don't like about the exhaust is the overly large exhaust tip. It must be 5 or 6 inches in diameter and looks a little large when viewed from the rear. A smaller tip would look better and allow the exhaust to sit a little more tucked in as well.

Quality of the exhaust itself is probably the best I have ever seen in an aftermarket exhaust. The welding, hangers, flange are all first rate.

Almost too nice to put underneath a car!

Hey we got a kick out of that! That DTM muffler is pretty old school. I think that it actually goes pretty well with the Fit. For doing something different.

Any chance something like picture below would be in your design pipeline?
I love my DTM Medailion of my Integra GSR so much that I put it on my Fit for "in your face" look, but I would not mind something flat black, dual tip with creative tip design.
I am geting to an age where polished mufflers stick like sore thumb when shined by a lights of a following cop car! Living in a small SF East Bay town where nothing goes on does not help with local law enforcement boredom!
