I do like it, it sounds very good. Not ricey at all, but nice and throaty. Not too loud, not too quiet. Sounds amazing under power, sounds good at idle.
Gurgles and pops when it downshifts in S.

As you know, I have it on my '06 330i, and for some reason, it drones more on my car than it seems to do on others. Andrew rode in my car with me when it was done, and he said my car makes it drone more.

It's right around 2K RPM under load, for a band of about 250rpm, which I get at certain speeds in S mode in the city. Highway driving is enjoyable, quiet, but nice when you get on it.

I have no problems with the drone myself, but I drive my 8 month old to daycare everyday, and my wife hates it. So I've decided to go to something quieter, and an Ikon seems to fit my needs.
Really? Ikon over BMW PE? I think you should consider BMW PE!
