I'm considering Gintani sport as well. Does anyone have a pic of it installed with the double wall tips? E90 prefer but E92/3 fine. Black or ss doesn't matter. Thanks!!

Once you get the tune, ESS, Evolve, or whatever, the loudness does go down during "normal" driving experience. My car kinda of sounds stock plus a few db higher. You hear it around 2-5k rpm in the cabin but that is still not as bad as if you didn't get a tune. Definitely won't wake up the neighborhood and I live in a neighborhood where pampers aren't just for babies.

I haven't heard Gintani in person but from video clips, it is way different and louder than a akra..i'd go akra with a tune.
