I agree with everything Belgier has said; you can really tell this exhaust was designed for our cars, it accentuates everything in a positive way, and isn't intrusive (unless you want it to be and mash the throttle ). Expensive, yes, but IMO, money well spent; my car now sounds like what I think a sport coupe should.

I have to say, I may be even more tempted to get the PPK1 and see what that does to my driving experience . I currently am running an older version of the N55 DME software (Dec. 2010 build) so I still get burbles and pops on downshifts or coasting. It's my understanding that the new DME software update eliminates it, and the PPK1 adds it again . I wonder if the burble/pop inherent with the PPK1 would be more noticeable than what I currently experience? I really like that sound (especially post BMW PE) and would hate to lose it in a software update, so the PPK1 may allow that to become permanent (along with a lil boost in performance of course ). Hope I'm not getting too off topic!

I really can't tell you because i already hat the PE before i upgraded the DME with the PPK software... I know that the pops are pretty loud! You can hear them from inside if you're driving in the city...
