Please measure your pipe diameter 3 inches from the muffler to be sure it does not need to be welded.
O well, I was getting a lot of drone & rattling, maybe it's because I have a E93. I love the sound of the exhaust tho. I gave it away for FREE, shipped it out today to the guy. But I keep the tips. Got the OEM tips cut and welded the AA's on, so I paid $500 for some AA Tips

if you have the aa muffler, I strongly suggest getting a resonator delete, the drone is about the same if not maybe a tiny bit better even but damn it sounds WAY more mean, I just got it done 2 days ago and it sounds amazing especially on cold starts

if I was your neighbor I'd love you?

but in all seriousness it's loud on startup, but not loud obnoxious, and at low rpms it's not all that crazy so unless you're racing around your neighborhood you'll be good, still MUCH quieter than a stock f430 for example..

I called a bunch of shops and the lowest quote I got was $120, I was getting my brake fluid changed with a buddy on the forums here and he said he knew a shop in his area that does great work for very fair prices, I called em up, got quoted $50 bucks! 2 hours later I was done

Yeah, I hear the Y pipe seems to be the biggest factor in price.

Nice! Sounds loud as hell Did you notice any loss in torque after removing the res?

you know what I never did in the 3-4 days I've had it but this morning right after I took the video I was driving to work and the car felt less torque-y I'm not sure if it really was but I was on a long straight and it just wasn't pulling as hard, could be in my head if anything, but like I said no other signs besides this morning

you know what mine didn't before I did the resonator delete, it started to hang lower on one side and stick out a bit more after my resonator delete and they didn't even TOUCH the muffler ... weird stuff
