I would sell the exhaust and honestly get a CPE exhaust...I love the sound of the exhaust...much deeper and more throatier and there is absolutely NO DRONE whatsover...I have AT and droning would not be accepted...I was so scared of droning and when I bought the exhaust I was skeptical about what the REP told me about no drone...Well he was right!!! If droning is that much of an issue, Mr.5 is right sell the damn thing and take a hit on it, and buy yourself something that sounds nice and no drone!

Mr5, do you have the single muffler version or the dual?

I'm looking at grabbing a borla system and I'm also running some catless DP's. I just don't know which version to go for.

Think you can offer me any kind of help?

After about 5 months with your exhaust, got any feedback you can share with me to help me make a decision?

I have the single muffler and still love it to this day.
IMO, you really need to get the entire borla system to take advantage of the full sound though.

Alright, stupid question alert!

Are there different exhaust systems for the coupe and sedan? Or is it just one system that fits both E90 and E92? Because I've found this same system on a few sites that say it only fits the coupe.

Is that really the only difference? There was also another one that looks exactly the same, but is said to fit both the coupe AND the sedan.

Its literally a couple inches. The coupe will stick out a couple extra inches on the sedan. You could in theory use the exact same exhaust if you were to split the difference between the two.
