I have the E90 M3 Sedan in Alpine White w/ the bmw performance seats.

I am selling my akrapovic rear section if anyone is interested. I am going to switch exhausts again. Only the rear section is for sale.

And nice your father is getting a lift that's really cool. I'm not sure my garage could fit a lift, maybe a small one

How do you like the seats, especially compared to the stock ones? I hear they are quite expensive!!

I have a Challenge Street x-pipe(no secondary cats, just primary) and a Gintani Race rear section/muffler. Was considering going to a Challenge Race x-pipe that removes the primaries.

If you do make sure you get a tune to turn off the CEL light from the removal of the cats. I have the Challenge Sport X-pipe on my car with a Remus race cat-back muffler.

Yeah, I'm running Evolve's Stage 1 right now, guess I would have to go to Stage 2. How do you like being catless? Notice the bump in power? Too loud? Any bad smell?

I'm not catless running the sport pipe which has the high flow cats. I definitely felt the difference after putting on the sport x-pipe and it made a huge difference in sound. Every once in a while I would smell that "rotten egg" but it isn't that strong.

That's true, I was thinking of the Race version. Thanks.

I run a challenge race xpipe right now with the Akrapovic rear section. Everyone says it sounds amazing but I want something louder. Even with no cats its not that loud. I am switching back to Meisterschaft rear section on Wednesday. The shop thought I was nuts for getting rid of the akrapovic... lol. Catless does stink pretty bad and it also makes your rear bumper very dirty.

My previous setup before Akrapovic was Meisterschaft GT w/ challenge sport (HFC) xpipe. Sounded awesome and everyone thought I was crazy for getting rid of it. It was pretty loud but I love loud. I switched to akrapovic evolution for the weight savings and quality but I need something a bit louder. I sold my akra xpipe and got a catless challenge but it still didnt make it loud enough. I wish I could have akrapovic with a Catless meisterschaft sound . Akrapovic also looks the best from the rear end.

I saw your akra and it does look amazing from the back with the CF sleeves. I want to get the Dinan race quad resonated mid pipe to improve the loudness, but I don't feel like doing anything too loud as much as I want to.
