I'll get some in tunnel sound clips, will prob be a few weeks when am back in the UK.
I have the same setup. I must agree that is only a bit louder than stock but after breaking in it really widens up. Very bassy like you say and no drone issues due to the big resonator who's infront of the rearmuffler. Overall i'm also very satisfied with the sound it produces.
A few amateur soundclips of mine :
"... on the smiles-per-mile charts, the 1-series M coupe can't be beat. It is a challenging piece, a triple-X-rated driver's machine for semi-professionals. Its handling balance provides an open invitation to indulge in latent oversteer, and provides an opportunity to separate the men from the boys. It is an absolute hoot on the track and an addictive plaything on your favorite twisty back road. "
