ESS axleback installed- Amazing sound!

Finally got the new ESS mufflers in today, and they are freakin' outstanding. Roman, you guys have built jewels out of steel. Fitment was right on the money and the sound is so bloody good! WAY different from the OEM stock. The low huffy growl at idle is standout. WOT is kickass. Zero drone. Much deeper bass to it, and it never drowns the intakes when you crack em wide open. And the look with black cans- pics can't do justice. Really makes the cooling fins on the differential stand out, too. A big shout out to John and Greg at G Brock's in Dousman for the careful and spot on install. Burned up a tank of gas blasting down the country roads after the install Will post sound clips and drive by's soon as I can see around this dope smile plastered on my face!

The Dinan that I have heard was tuff sound, really nice, but on the turbo-ed in-line six in a 07 330i.

Love mine too! Got it for the sedan. Agree with everything you've said. What are you going to use to keep the tips looking new?

Not sure exactly what you are referring to but if it is in reference to my contribution to our M3 exhaust system I actually had a lot to do with it. The design of the system including sound I had a very large roll in. All of the testing was done by me and many of the challenges we came across I helped solve during development. Unlike most "salesman" I actually have a very active roll along with our engineers in many of the products we develop including the E9X M3 supercharger system. Sales is only one of many hats I wear at ESS. I was doing US spec product testing for ESS years before I became a full time employee for the company.

Sounds like your made it far more than just another exhaust system particularly in the sound department. From the videos it does provide a healthy blends of the most popular exhausts giving it a tone of its own. Not too loud, good sound and from what I've heard so far drone free or damn near.

Looking forward to hearing a members set up in Maryland.

What are you waiting for? I've had this thing installed for months now and I love it. It's literally perfect. It's not load...it's deep, rich, and throaty.
