I'm getting the test pipes and tune from BPM. Hope the eisenmann race and test pipe isn't too loud???
Cool, I think you'll be happy with the sound assuming Eisenmann isn't too much louder than AP. And yes, it's beefy, haha.

I won't go on and on and on about this, but it really is amazing what Mike's tune did in conjunction with the pipes. Before the tune you could tell the pipes were doing something, but not a lot. After the tune it's honestly a completely different feeling vehicle...and it's NOT placebo effect. Anyone who says that is not talking from experience.
The best way to describe it is like you're down a gear. At 50 mph, 4th now pulls like you were in 3rd, 5th gear at 60 now feels like 4th at 60. If you want to get out of the slow lane and around someone, you don't have to downshift to blow by them, just drop the hammer. If you downshift and hammer it you may evaporate or enter a time warp.
Long story short, I was expecting a lot from this set up, but I'm seriously blown away. These two mods turn the M3 into something you can now scare your friends with, haha. On the track of course. I never felt much need to get 295 series tires, but now I'm on Tirerack to find grip.
If anyone wants to talk about this, feel free to post on here or PM me.

Here's the clip. Sorry it's so short but you get the point! This is revved to about 4000-4500 rpm, nothing too crazy. I think the sound is pretty true. Enjoy, and I apologize if this just cost you $1500 and a fight with your girl

What do you have for the axle-back in this vid?

Agency Power from what I have heard is the same thing as a Megan racing exhaust which is only like $500. It sounds really nice, I'm going the Megan with TP very soon. It's throaty without being too loud (for some maybe not loud enough).

I just had the megan racing done with test pipes/tune this past week - i agree with OP - turns the car into a completely different animal and feels/sounds MEAN!
