you should be concern with best fitment first, follow by sound second...

All the downpipes are more or less the same (sound wise). What you're paying for is quality of the materials/build quality and fitment.

All catless downpipes serve the same purpose.... They sound 95% the same from what I've seen. With that being said, I'd say go with BMS because their price and quality.
No drone, perfect fitment, sounds like a beast. Best price.

Now, if you want to sound like a big shot... Go with the AR or something.

Extra $150-200 for the same product.

Nah, if you want to be a big shot, go with Akrapovic.

I have the BMS dp and love it.

Any catless dp is better than stock.

Different mufflers/resonators will make the exhaust sound different.
A pipe is a pipe. Get the cheapest and best fitting one.
