Just talked to the exhaust dealer and they will have a new one arriving at my door on Wednesday and pick up the damaged one.

Let's hope this one makes the trip OK.

I am sure it will be perfect.


Getting some more miles on mine, then I will give my impressions with sound/vids as well.

Then the mids go on...then the DP's.

The replacement arrived yesterday and was in perfect condition.
They also arranged for the driver to pick up the damaged one at the same time.

Appointment at noon tomorrow for installation.

I will have my videos up shortly. Due to the time change every day when I get home it is already dark. So hopefully this weekend.

Installation done, 30 min by professionals, no problems.

As reported, not much sound diff out of the box, sure like the tips better.

We will get some miles on it and record a video of the sound.

Installation pic to follow tonight.

Any updates?
Pics of the exhaust on the car hopefully?
Or vids to get a sense of the sound once the exhaust settles?

None of them are of the exhaust on the car. Except for one, small close-up pic; but that really isn't that useful.

Ok here's a pic of the exhaust on the car:



It's the best one I could get due to lighting conditions

How about an updated review from some of the folks running this Magnaflow system on their 1M. It's still looking like the best route for me, both cost and quality wise. Any regrets or issues from existing owners? Sound clips from anyone?
Thanks in advance.

It seems like the stainless steel is on par with stock, as are the welds, etc.
So it's not a huge upgrade like the other exhausts. But at it's price point, just for the tips and (hopefully) a little extra sound, seems totally worth it.

I personally think this sounds a little louder and deeper and the sound does not drop off as fast as the stock exhaust, plus the tips look much nicer too. It was worth the $650.00 we spent

Just ordered up one of the last few remaining units from John. The price is just right on this and I can't see spending 3-5X the price of this exhaust for one of the more "exotic" ones available.
