I was looking at the prices and the ti system is actually more expensive than the akrapovic system. $2998 exhaust + $2798 midpipes = $5796.

It should be noted that the cf tips are only $398 compared to the $1,373 diamond encrusted cf akrapovic tips, though.
Yes, it's noticeably louder than stock. No dp's offered.

As for the titanium setup, it appears they're the same price when you include the titanium tips with the Akrapovic Evolution system. Titanium tips are standard with the Meisterschaft unit.

Dumb question maybe, but where is the rear muffler? Surely this would be ridiculously noisy, and illegal. Considering there is no muffler it sounds very exy.

No, this isn't HP's car. Not sure what exhaust setup they're currently running either.

Correct, these are basically pipes but what's interesting is that this exhaust is only somewhat louder than my past Meisterschaft GT exhaust I had on my 135i which did include a muffler. Maybe there was little baffling?

The current OEM muffler on the 1M is pretty hollow as well. It doesn't sound like there's much baffling here either.

A bit of an update to my overall impressions of this exhaust.

With this being my third exhaust purchased from these guys I can tell you that their product, in my opinion, speaks for itself. The 1M exhaust is breaking in nicely and becoming more aggressive. Cold start up's are crazy and I'm sure my neighbor won't be so willing to lend me his tools next time I ask. The best thing about this exhaust thus far though is the "pop" under WOT gear switching. I can't get enough of this!

I hope to hit the dyno this week to see what kind of gains were picked up. Most of the shops in my area are booked weeks if not months in advance so it's not that easy to hop on one these days.

OT: I did an early morning photoshoot with the guys from GTHaus before I removed the decals from the car. Another local guy joined in as well with his tuned TTS that's putting out 326hp to the wheels. Enjoy!

Unless you're doing a before/after install dyno run on the same dyno, the results won't mean much. It would be nice to see the true gains.

That's what I'm doing. Baseline then modded. This isn't my first rodeo.

In stock form there's drone so yes, there is some with the aftermarket ones as well. As mentioned before, the OEM rear canister is pretty hollow as it is so it doesn't surprise me there's drone from the factory.
