I don't think that was their intention lol. FWIW, the Eisenmann race isn't much louder than stock either

That is a bummer. It looks good from the photos and one would guess it would be better than stock but thanks for your report. I won't be ordering one of these. Maybe just settle with the stock exhaust for awhile, which will be a first.

I love cars but no way, no how, could I ever spend 7%+ of the purchase price on an add-on like an exhuast.

It's a real shame, the next exhaust, even cat-back, is over twice as expensive.

Maybe add catless down and mid pipes instead? It would be a lot more fierce and throaty, not to mention actually make the car quicker.

That's what I'm doing for now. I just bought a set of Berk catless midpipes. If you keep an eye out on the for sale section you can pick them up for a pretty good deal from a previous 135 owner. Based on the video HP Autowerks posted of just these on a 1M it should sound really good!

Thats exactly what I did - for 599 cant beat the Berk mids. For that price I would buy it new and resell if you end up with something else later. I will use them until I hear a 1M exhaust in person that I actually like!

yup, looks good, just like mine looks, except you don't have a big dent in the side of one of the outside tips.

Maybe I will hear from them when they all get back from SEMA on Monday.

My system is already on the car, once I drive it a little more I will give my impressions as they are a little different than what the other person has written about the exhaust.

Great, I'm very inerested to hear your thoughts. I'm going to put about 150 miles on mine today and see if it opens up a little.

Update As stated above I put about 150 mile on my car today and the Magnaflow has opened up quite a bit, there is significantly more sound character than when it was first installed, I have about 250 miles on the system. I'm sure hoping this continues!

I put about 200 miles on my car since the exhaust, let's just say this exhaust has changed completely. I couldn't find my camera or video camera today, but once I get those I'll make some videos. I'll start a new thread in a little bit with my review.
