Do all 2016 C63s have a performance exhaust?

I'm in the process of buying a 2016 C63 and was wondering whether the performance/flapped/switched exhaust is standard on all 2016 C63s or whether it was an option (like it is on the C43s, for example)?

Option on all model years up to 2019, where it is now standard

Thanks for the quick reply. Do youi happen to know the SA/option code that'd appear on the build sheet?

... a few minutes later:
Sorry, never mind. I looked up another VIN and I see it has
U78 SWITCHABLE EXHAUST SYSTEM

U78 is the code i have, but it may be different for non-cabriolet models...

Looks like it's the same code. I looked up a 2018 C63 S sedan and a 2015 507 edition coupe and they had the same code/description. Thanks, again.

Of course, now I'm bummed out as the car that I was ready to buy does not have the performance exhaust (I did notice "no button" and it did seem a little subdued) and I know how wonderful that option is on my C43, so ...

It's an option you have to get when buying an AMG. That was the number 1 option that I got on my C63S.

Iíve never heard one with the Performance Exhaust option, but mine sounds pretty mean in Sport+ mode. How does Performance Exhaust compare?

Meaner. It sounds louder but not obnoxious loud. Kind of hard to explain on a forum it's just something you'll have to hear for yourself.

Holy cow, I'm already waking up all the dogs in the neighborhood by driving in on Sport+.

My wife says, "Your new Mercedes sounds like a teenager's muscle car!" And to that I say, "Yes... And?"
