Gintani Exhaust

I would like someone with personal experience with the Gintani Exhaust (axle-back, or full) to post their experience with the exhaust, also if there are any drone issues at highway cruising speeds (70-75mph).

I pm'ed u back. But just so others know, the only drone the car has is at about 2100-2400 i beleive with the full Gintani exhaust. Its very minimal and very easy to live with considering its a full catless exhaust. U can cruise at 70-75 no problem and still carry a conversation with someone. As far as the axle back by it self goes, I dnt remeber any drone from that set up, very little if any. With just the axle back the cabin is very quite.

Slight drone at the lower RPM's no big deal. Cruising speeds of 70-75 no drone at all pretty quiet. I love this exhaust it is amazing. It is loud when you want it to be and quiet when you are cruising. It is the perfect exhaust for what I was looking for and plenty of compliments along the way.

So full system AND axle-back only have NO drone at 70-75mph? How much louder is the full system compared to just the axle back? Can a VRS Type I diffuser fit around the tips?

Anyone got any rear shots of this exhaust on an E92?
