Unhappy 2016 C CLASS

I am on my 15th Benz with a new 2016 C-300 with an AMG sport package and all the goodies. Here is my problem. This is the first time I realized we had no engine options. You either get a 4 cylinder turbo or you have to go up to a C-450 and another $10,000. The car is great but it sounds like a Toyota! They did not offer a performance exhaust system which they offered on the CLA 250 but not the C-300. This car sounds terrible. Does anyone know how I can alter or update the exhaust system so it sounds like it looks????? Come on Mercedes. My last C-350 Coupe sounded great. It's been 2 months and I love the car but can't get over the frustration of driving a sporty looking car that literally sound like a 4 cylinder Toyota! Help

What is wrong with a 4 cylinder Toyota? Just add a fart can muffler and it will sound bitching.

If they are so good why did you need 15 of them?

I am just guessing here, but the previous 14 did not sound like a Toyota.
