Guys, according to what I just learned from Harold of HP Autowerks which actually confirms what was already told by Maddad earlier in this thread, there won't be a GB for the MD midpipes for us. Just wanted to share it.

I swapped to N55 mid-pipe last week. Frankly, there is not much of a difference, but at least the drone is almost gone ...

My MadDad's seems to just get better ...now after 3,000km's

Sounds exotic under acceleration... was thinking of getting the Borla ATAK muffler, but actually it is perfect as is.

How about performance now that it has had time to open up?

These 1M's definitely get better with more miles on them. Car has 3,500kms on her now and just seems to get stronger
I will dyno again in a few weeks. P3 gauge shows 4.5 second times.

+1 I cant notice a difference really. Not in sound, not in performance, not in drone. Still way too quiet for me but my 135 had straight pipes with a Borla axleback.

Well, IMO, the best exhaust "valve" is this one: opening the windows. Now that makes a huuuge difference. Plus it's free !!

I love my n55 and borla. Deeper, burbly, sharper throttle response, and very livable.

Think that Borla + MadDads may be too loud?

I'm not sure. I haven't heard maddads in person, but I can't imagine there's a huge difference in loudness compared to the n55. I actually think I could tolerate a bit louder, but I'm very happy with the way this setup works. It's almost as quiet as it was at regular revs and cruising speeds, but it always has a more characteristic growl. Then, you open it up, and it reminds you what you have under the bonnet and below your butt.

I just couldn't justify almost a doubling of the price for the maddads. I got a good price on the n55s from getbmwparts, but unfortunately, these guys no longer even ship outside of the states.

Thanks, think that I am happy for now, but Borla is on my wishlist.... could really piss my neighbors off though

I have heard a mate's 1M with N55 mids next to mine... MadDad's are significantly louder.

It's just right for the 1M in my opinion.
