OK, I'm going back and forth on this exhaust. At times it seems very loud, baratone like and droning but then today relatively quite. Here is a video I took but as you can tell its very hard to get decent sound... I also tried with a video camera and it was more worthless. The problem, you hear a lot of intake (AFE) and drivetrain with the car. Also, you won't see me blasting down the road at 100mph to get a decent video, just some sharp stabs at throttle and pull away from stoplights.

For now I'm mixed, it keeps changing its character for the better (today) but I only have 100 miles on it. Hopefully the n55 mid-pipe comes in tomorrow and I can install, maybe that is what I'm looking for. The actual look is amazing, the tips and sizing are spot on!

Note, it must be louder because the wife asked if it was broken because she could here me coming from a distance inside the house.

If you hate the drone you won't like the magnaflow. It's louder across the board IMO. The n55 mid pipe also changed its character for the better reducing the drone but increasing sound on acceleration.

Hi,

Does somebody know which is the size in MM of this system's tips?
I really like how they fit the car and think they look better than the Eisenmann ones.

Thanks in advance!

I love Magnaflow products. I use them on all of my vehicles. They make a nice product. The olny complaint i ever had was their use of lower quality SS. It turns puple/rusty after a few weeks...

The muffler looks great on the car...sorry to hear that the tone and weight isn't up to expectations. Can someone please tell me what diameter the Magnaflow exhaust tips are? I'm thinking of changing the tips of my OEM muffler for now.

Thanks a bunch!
