Have you got your car yet and has it got the exhaust button installed in the cabin?
I don't know about Australia but in the US AMG Sport Exhaust System is standard, AMG Performance Exhaust System is optional on 43 and 63
Looking at the MB Australian website the AMG Performance Exhaust System is optional as a package with carbon fiber exterior mirror housing for the 63 but not proposed for the 43 (just like in Europe)

Hi Thanks

That really sucks I might have to look in to a aftermarket exhaust do you know if you can buy the AMG Performance Exhaust System and get it fitted?

My understanding is that the PE can't be bought and fitted afterwards due to coding and wiring. Someone in the C43 forum and the AMG Private Lounge asked and the Mod in the PL confirmed it was basically NO. I researched because I wanted it now too.

Now, I'm sure for the right price it could be done, but not worth it. Check out AWE or some other aftermarket vendor. Bummer.

I am sure you can get the Performance Exhaust but like said Chrisk03 the coding and wiring for the valve is going to be an issue .
Best way is going to a valved aftermarket one .

I have 2018 AMG GTC. The sport exhaust sounds sick. Pops and cracks like crazy down shifting.

Not sure if this helps on GLC43 but my wife has an E43 and I can tell you the stock GLC43 exhaust is much louder then her stock E43. We got the GLC as a loaner while her car gets serviced and I thoiught it had sport exhaust it was so much louder than her E43. Neither cars had the sport exhaust button though.

Could also be that the E43 is insulated better in cabin? Not sure.

~ Apparently this wasn't an option on my early custom ordered '18 glc43 (because I inquired) but then became available later in the model year? I guessing this... for I have seen some '18 glc43 showing this optional center console button.

The PE (Code U78) was in the DOG (Dealer Order Guide) last year and the PE has been an option since 17, I believe. I ordered my GLC43 in Sept of 2017 and it WAS available, but I passed at the time thinking I could just add later like my prior BMW...no dice. That said, even the standard Sport Exhaust sounds pretty good, I would just like a little more sound, personally. Apparently, additional cracks/pops can be "coded" in by a few aftermarket places, but not sure on cost. The button on the center console that comes with the optional PE allows you to control the exhaust valves.

I ordered my 2018 GLC43 in September 2017 and selected the performance package that came with 21" wheels and perfornance exhaust...glad I did since it does make a difference. Can turn it on whenever I want - great sound in Sport mode.

PE is a must have. Will definitely turn heads with puzzled looks at the next light.

Depends where you live. I’m happy if I can get the car to make downshift gurgle noises with brisk braking. It’s hard to get it to make the upshift pops before hitting the speed limit+10mph or getting stuck behind a CRV, RAV4, Prius, RX, some other ugly Lexus or some other slow *** Acura SUV/CRV on a 50mph road or merging lane onto the freeway or left lane on the freeway. Every single f*ucking day.

Yep, there they are. As you can see from the top pic, the pipes go 2-in-1 to the resonator. The dual pipes from the engine are 2.25 and the single pipe from rear of the resonator is 3in. This is why the standard exhaust with just resonator delete is so loud. Also, I think the stock downpipes are like 2.5 or 2.25. The aftermarket downpipes are 3in in diameter. I can't wait to install my downpipes.
