I now hear the turbos better, and the car definitely feels quite a lot more powerful - without having it dynoed, but I would not be surprised at having 15-20 whp more than before. I can't say whether the turbos also spool quicker and the engine reacts quicker to throttle commands, but at least in high revs it feels like it. It's already much more fun to drive! And sounds (and looks!) meaner too with the Bastuck quad that I had installed as well.

did u have the bastuck installed same time as AR?

i had the bastuck for few months now, after i installed the AR Catless DP..
the sound revving sound is definately different now, MUCH MUCH more aggressive and it rasps...

When u rev up to 5k and decel, does it rasp? HAHA
all my buddies think my 335i sounds like M3/m5 with eisenmann cuz of the rasp but with a much much more throaty aggressive bastuck tone

Yes, the downpipes and the quad exhaust were installed at the same time. But I have downpipes with race cats, not catless ones. That may account for the more aggressive sound on your car. But I like it very much the way it is! And only had 30 or so km on it right now. Doing some more 2000 during the next few days, then I can say more.
