Thumbs up >>>Another Happy customer!! Active Autowerke E9X Signature Exhaust System <<<<< Pics

I just received and installed the exhaust system, packaging was top notch with all the parts wrapped for protection.. I was able to jack up the car from the back to do the install. This is easy a one person install, I was able to lay on my back and support the oem and AA exhausts with my knees, so those of you thinking you need some one to make it easier need not to worry.. Fitment and finish was perfect! I looked over the CD (instructions) that came with the exhaust once, as its a no brainer install. From a scale from 1 to 10 (10 being the hardest i.e Building a bottom end) this install was a -1..LOL
The sound is perfect IMO! No drone, no rasp, just plain sick sound. I was a little uneasy about spending so much for some pipes but the sound is def worth it. The butt dyno feels a little love also, this coming weekend I will drag it at the track to see if the trap speed increase.. Here are some late night pics...

Guys the tips appear to be sticking out quite a bit, but not really it must be the angle of the camera shot.. The longest tip is 1/2 inch out... I too had to go look at them once i took the pics, but they are not to bad.. cool thing its a 5 min fix..

that def is not the camera angle though. I'd pull those tips in a bit...

Now that's a nice looking exhaust, even though I agree with the others that the tips are set too long, but at least they're adjustable. It's a lot better-looking than the pics of the UUC Corsa exhaust that's been posted lately.

I noticed your 12.7 E.T. Nice, and what one expects. Are you 6MT or DCT? Were you running stock tires or DR?
