Same here.. have had the N55 mids on for about 4 months and the sound just gets better after every km..

Nice and deep without the high pitched rasp of the Maddads or Berks..

And yes..you get about 7 kws or 10HP gains at the wheels from this mod..

Very easy to do your self.. Once the car is jacked up and secure, shouldn't take you more than 20 mins to R&R mids..

OP : so now you have N55 catless midsection + Meisterschaft catback. Do they fit easily to each other?
Must be quite some noise this setup! Catback whitout muffler Cool
How much does the Meistershaft costs approx.?

Question in general : Would the removal of the resonator in the N55 midpipe cause a big sound increase?

Might have to stop by the local dealer and look into the N55 pipe. Have been satisfied with the sound, but the benefits seem to make this a no brainer...lighter, more power, slightly more sound with no emissions/warranty concerns?

How much does the N55 pipe cost at a dealer?

Does anyone have a comparison vid with the Maddad?

Im planning on doing just that. Ran straight pipes with no cats or resonators on my 135 and it sounded great!!

Thanks, apparently the diagram I was looking at online is not right. Hopefully my local dealer will match the online price of $333.

Do GT Haus (Meisterschaft) sell in the UK at all? Or can you only order them in America?
