E90 + Magnaflow

Has anyone used the new Magnaflow catback system on their E90?? I know people have used just their mufflers, but what about the whole system they advertise??? (under 2K)

Im sure if you add a X-pipe and delete the secondary cats you will see some gain. All axle back exhausts will have little or no gain. Pretty much for sound or weight savings.

I live in Calif. ie. Smog checks, I will keep the cats! I can pick this system up for just over 1K. Thats not bad for some good sounds from our beautiful V8 and expected minimal hp. gains! Any new exhaust system is a gamble when you buy it, even if you hear sound clips, the majority of us have to depend on feed back from others weather it is good or bad etc. and thank god we all like different things and sounds. Its all good

Im planning on a purchase of their system. I want the "American" V8 sound as opposed to the "Euro" V8 sound. Not looking for HP gains and coupled with a CAI, this will be enough for me!

I suppose a 1K drone exhaust is less than a 3K drone??? Is the drone better in a 3K exhaust? So far from what Ive read, and its been alot, every system has a drone somewhere in the RPMs. How much did you pay for yours????
