Corsa vs magnaflow

Anyone know why corsa cat backs are so much more expensive than a magnaflow cat back system? Is there any real difference in material quality? Help!

Corvettes are so much more expensive than Miatas, is there a difference in material quality?

I had Magnaflow on my C5, 06 GTO and 93 Vette. I had no problems and the quality was outstanding. No downing Corsa. JMHO. The C6 is yet to be determined.

Yes, the Corsa is absolutely drone-free. But the sound is much more better if you have headers.
It's mine.

I have the Magnaflow 16732s and love them. I don't have any drone. Price was the leading factor in my choice.
