The sound is spot on and everything else looks perfect (well, I could live without the logo on the CF part but a very minor issue anyway). I just asked the US vendor if a new GB could be arranged, let's see their reply.

Thats great!!!

I am having my rear system installed on Friday.

Please post the diference between the rear system vs the full system in sound and performance.

By the way, are the tips of the remus bigger than stock? if so, how much bigger?

Thanks and congrats on the new mod!

+1, the difference between the two systems are important; I want to decide if I better go with N55 mids or with Remus race pipe.

About the tips: they say the tips are 84 mm diameter in their web site, the stocks are 78 mm if I remember correctly (I asked this before to Evolve).

And miula: your car is stock or already has other mods on?

The tips are about 1/4 inch wider but fit well without any trimming needed...

Fitment is perfect. Actually sits higher and more neatly than stock. Did a track day yesterday and muffler definitely deeper now.

UPDATE: Done 400km's now on Remus + MadDads....difinitely a difference to first fitment. It is very loud on cold start, nice and subtle in mid rev range between 2000-3500, there after exotic & LOUD! Great burble over-run! Barks & screams on any WOT.

Thanks for the updates.

Any plan on DPs or would it be too much in your opinion?
How is the throttle response and feel, especially in non-M mode?
Any noticeable gain in +6000 rpm (desire to hit the rev limiter-wise)?
If you make a sound clip please add some time with the car idling.

No noticible gains, but just come off a track day so street feels slow.

Definitely no DPs, car is very loud now, and hoping the Remus doesn't change any more.

Will try do another video.

EDIT: just went for a run to the shops... sounds great actually, although the wife noticed the increased noise

I got the Remus installed today

The sound is only a little deeper now but I know it will get louder after some kms. But it growls more.

Looks great on my AW.

I will post a review later after some kms. and will post pics. I haven't seen any pics of AW with this system.

Cant wait for it to get louder!

No, only the rear.

I am thinking about the mid pipes...

Anyone has them?

What are the diferences between only rear and rear and mids?

Mids will give you more power (+10rwHP). Much deeper & aggressive noise.

I do feel the remus needs a bit more noise... I only have like 400 km now. Im not sure how much more will it open up.

Anyone know this?
