Me too...i mean mmw exhaust i heard good things about but its a modified stock exhaust and i cant wait to ship n return thats 2 much...i rather get something new n different...im not sure if theres too many other options then IKON or the magnaflow(which im not sure im a fan of i heard 2 many negatives) but what other options do we have besides pe which is outrageously over priced

Bump for video, RingBredE90?

Did you keep your secondary cats?
Are you experiencing any drone?

I also have the Ikon with res delete and it sounds good and gurgles a little when shifting but nothing compared to the real deal BMW PE.

At more than half the price, I am quite content with my Ikon exhaust. I painted my muffler matte black and it looks a lot more discreet then the shiny chrome.

The only good thing I guess is the 14815 comes with tips. But, IMO it's a better option to go with one without tips. Then you can have the muffler shop mount it at 45 degrees instead of having a 90 degree bend in the exhaust piping, and you can pick whatever tips you want.

As far as drone, there is no drone on mine on the highway. I still have the stock cats and resonator in. Haven't noticed a change in power in either way, but I did it mainly for looks and sound.
I'm thinking of doing a dual (335 style) setup. You think I can use this muffler and have that great deep sound? Thanks.

TBH its not very loud, though it does sound deeper than stock. It sounds the best on cold start or low RPM under heavy load.

Is that your current setup now that I saw on youtube? And what kind of tips did you use? Thanks.

Yeah, thats my setup. The video was right after I had it done. It seems a little louder than that now.

I used Magnaflow 4" tips.
