Which Brand of FMIC/Exhaust did you upgrade to?!?!?

So i'm still on the performance part of my mods (E92) and won't rest till I break 400 to the wheels ..As for now I have JB3 1.3 (soon to be 1.4 when mike sends it ), Injen DCI and CP-E Catted DP's..Rixter Vent Gauge

Very soon to upgrade the FMIC and Exhaust...

Question is...to all enthusiast/tunners out there in the E90Post world...

Which brand of those two bolt-on upgrades did you switch to??

I'm running AA's exhaust and no FMIC. They just released an improved version of my exhaust, too. Great sound, real menacing. I'm also partial to the new aFe exhaust.

No problem bro! I'm working on it lol. Right now I have the FMIC, but I'm waiting until after the winter before I install. I heard the sound clip of the exhaust and it sounds good! Plus its a good deal...

Helix FMIC, I believed there marketing jargon and am very happy I did. Highly impressed.
DP's I went with AR purely due to quality and 3 inch right through.
