Magnaflow exhaust installed!

Got the new exhaust on the car yesterday. Sound is great (Magnaflow) much louder, with a rumble at idle. The other thing is it lets you see the rear end under the car if you are behind it in traffic.

I will get a sound bite as soon as possible. It is nice and loud outside while not too bad inside. Very different sound obviously than the E46.

That looks pretty darned sharp! I would venture to assume that it is a very inexpensive option as well. How is the sound? I hope it doesn't sound like an American V8.

Is the plumbing mandrel bent?

Yes it is mandrel bent. I don't think you could get this car to sound like a small block. It is a very european sound. What I like about it most is it is has a nice rumble at idle.

Looks sharp! Is it a true bolt-on or did you have to cut off piping? Were you Magnaflow's test car? Price? Thx!

Call me picky/paranoid but I would be concerned about the alteration of the flow characterisitcs under the car and around the muffler based on such a large change to the entire volume and diffuser area. No doubt this exhaust looks waaaay better then stock and I love to be able to see more of the beautiful diff. cover cooling fins. However, I doubt most muffler deisgners/manufacturers are thorough enough to do some simple flow or temperature tests to guarantee no significant rise in differetial.
