Man you weren't lying. Those guys really did a number on your diffuser...

In regards to the sound, sounds pretty damn good to me!

Hmm not bad, weird the remus mufflers cancel out the popping and gurgling though

May just need breaking in, most systems i have had have changed in tone and db after a few weeks.

*$&%.. what have they done to your diffuser!?

But a carbon fiber quad diffuser will fix that..

The sound itself is pretty loud, would love to hear it again in person on Wednesday.

It's possible that the camera is close to the exhaust. But Cold start is even louder!! Can wake the neighbours UP from few levels below! It's That LOUD!

After a long day of waiting, picked up the car on friday night after work and DAMN the Exhaust is LOUD!! Mechanic said it took longer then he expected and he wasn't not happy with the work.

After having the car for over the weekend, I was still not certain that I'd like the sound as it was different. I always had a quiet car but never one that ROARS!! All I can say for now is I will need some time to get use to it. The exhaust has some drone and rasp. Some says that the DP contribute the raspyness.

Anyways the car will be going back into the workshop to check whether the DP is touching as I can feel vibration on idle and even on stepping on the gas abit.

I NEED A NEW DIFFUSER.

If only I'd listened to SHANE!!! I didnt expect the cutting would be this bad ! SIGH

Just to spoil some fun. Here's the video someone of you wanted. Excuse the bad quality video

When I had the remus exhaust system on my 335i, I found that it gave the car a louder sound (think JDM), but not an aggressive/throaty note. Each to their own though, I ended up removing the system.
