IMO it's hard to beat the quality, performance, sound, and look of the OE
rear muffler.  Yes they are pricey but to me worth it.

I had an aftermarket unit that maybe flowed a tiny bit better, but didn't
have the sound or look (it was single tip).

You may want to try looking for a CGT donor for a window reg.  I have not
looked in TFA but ISTR VIN splits on the urq and on the CGT - so some work
some do't I think.  Or maybe you just need to drill new holes for some.  I
don't know....
