OP, I'm glad you like your enjoying the PE. Your experience just wants me to get one even more now.

To all you experts out there with PE's, I have an n54 e90 and looking to get one soon too. Right now I have my DP off, but if I do put them on again later, do you think leaving the stock e90 resonator in would help with the rasp of the PE. I would rather do that then put the x-pipe and find out I need to put a couple Vibrants in there to take the rasp out. Tried to look for a video or anything doing the same and came up empty.

Thanks guys

Maybe you're desensitized to the raspiness? People say they love my exhaust all the time, but when i ask my honest friends, they admit it sounds a bit terrible at times.
Any suggestions on a high quality camera geared to recording accurate audio? My camcorder is lilke 5yrs old only 720p and takes horrible audio..

again no one has said anything negative.. trust me we bust balls these are all close friends, they'd love nothing more than to tell me how shitty it sounds

I've got a canon rebel t2i that I just picked up an external mic for. I'm gonna try to make some vids this weekend. Most cameras have terrible mics, key is to purchase a good external. I think. Go pro with an external should even be good.

I've read really good reviews about the PE, thats why i've bought one myself as well. I did quite a youtubing to see the best example but i think they all sound a bit rice. I really hope it is as good as everyone says.

I really think that you will enjoy it. It really does sound great.

The drama is only if you want downpipes, but this can be addressed with quality resonators.

The videos do not do this exhaust justice. Can't comment on the down pipes. But you will have no regrets with this exhaust. I have owned numerous cars and put many exhaust systems on. Never I have seen a simple axle back transform a cars persnality like this has.

I have the BMW PE. Only time I hate it (And this is only because my procede requires a placeholder code, so the flapper is permanently open) is on cold start up, when it's enriching the mixture and the engine sits at 1100 rpm. it sounds HORRIBLE then. I also have resonated dp's with no cats.

Otherwise, the other 99% of the time it sounds AWESOME and isn't too loud for my liking. It gurgles, it spits, and rumbles. It sounds just so damn good. It makes the car sound 5 times meaner than it actually is.

At normal idle, and even cruising it's not really noticeable, and I usually roll my window down when I'm gonna be playing the WOT game.

I will never, ever be changing out the axleback section of my exhaust. Nothing will sound better.

Update. I don't see why people hate the cold start up so much. I kinda love it.

Someone needs to take my late night posting privileges away. Got confused between the Dinan FFE and the BMW PE.

Sorry!

Shipping for a product that size will be crazy. I'd recommend buying it from a vendor from australia. The price of the PE and then with shipping from the states =
