I ran this very system for about a year, was very pleased with the tone.

Does the Challenge HFC Xpipe throw codes?

Because EAS on your website it says it doesn't, but then i hear someone saying it does, im confused

I really wish someone had this plus stock axle back and i could hear it. I've been considering this setup. Just don't know how it will sound.

We have a local M3 using the Sport system coupled with a Vorsteiner Catback and does not have any CELs to report since day one.

Been a full year, I'm assuming close to 10K miles by now.

Looks like EAS site has the Street description under the Sport system - Under the Sport it says -

"The Challenge X Pipe features 304 stainless steel piping and flanges, twin high flow resonators, and a precision laser cut X section. This pipe slip fits after your OEM cats, for easy installation with NO check engine lights! All of the bolts and gaskets necessary for install are included, and the price is absolutely unbeatable."

The Sports system bolts right to the headers & will show a CEL w/o a tune or deleter.

What did you hear? Which catback with which x-pipe have drone? I have a Corsa and I'm thinking about adding Challenge Street, will that combination produce a drone? Corsa alone is 100% drone free.

Nobody mentioned the ESS x-pipe with HFC's. Supposedly this design does not produce a CEL. Worth a look...
