Milltek exhaust

Hey everyone last week I got my V2 installed @ ICS performance in CT. They were trying to sell me on the Milltek exhaust. What are your guys thoughts on this?

Milltek makes great products, but I have hounded them about getting pics of the exhaust so I could see everything in its entirety and they've ignored me.
I want to see if it's resonated or if it has an X pipe or whatever.

I thought that harman motive made the vishnu exhaust.

Milltek makes nice exhausts, but whether or not you will like their exhaust for the 335i depends upon your own taste. I think its way too quiet, but that's just me.

Would they sell just that piece? That might help out the little bit of drone I get with just a Magnaflow X Pipe.

How would that help? Looks like normal x-pipe to me

Can the Milltek system fit the sedan? Maybe with a little cutting?

Yeah absolutely no droning.. I think it's also quieter than other exhaust systems that I've heard.

I was looking for something with good flow, and a slightly more aggressive tone as compared to OEM. I've had it on for 6mths and am very happy with it. Workmanship and finishing is incredible!

The X pipe won't make the droning go away, the inline resonators that you see in the Milltek photos will.

I ended up getting similar resonators put on my UR exhaust and most (not all of it) of the droning ended up going away.

I've got the UR catted downpipes as well.. a later addition. Made the exhaust sound 10% louder with more growl. But thankfully still no drone.

I wonder what it would sound like with catless downpipes.

Sorry can you rephrase your question? I'm afraid I don't quite understand what you're asking.
