Spence I'm kidding just throwing perspective on how SA crime is overplayed in the press. I've been to the US and spent a month in LA with friends, hell you have cops on every block! SA is cool in good areas, but where is poverty near rich suburbs, crime exists. High Jacking of cars, break ins and cash in transit vehicle heists like in HEAT with deniro and Pacino!! Only not as cleverly executed ad our police response times are not as comparable.

Where and when were you in LA? Let me know if you come back out here.

Crime in LA is over played too, but just like any major metropolitan area, there are places you want to avoid, and many more that are safe and you never even worry about crime. LA is SO spread out, that most shady areas you’d never really go to anyways.

Ive never heard the the slip-on by itself. But the evolution sounds incredible not to loud no drone and very good power gains + you save 54lbs in excess BMW fat from the factory!

I would say yes, my guess is that the slip on, dont have the raspiness of the full system, simply because the standard Cats and Resonators are still in place. Back pressure would be reduced. Power increase is negligible with slip on, like 3HP or something, but I would guess throttle response would be improved.

As stated sound on full system is not loud at all. Sounds orgasmic, which can only be achieved with a full hard on and not a semi

Since this thread is degenerating into a smutty sexually explicit content, I feel it's my duty as one of the more senior forum members to pull it back into line! Wonder if that will get me elected as a moderator.

That comment above is more like 20% since the power comparison is 23hp vs 3Hp

sounds cool but a bit like putting fake Brembo caliper overs over your stock ones! :LOL

or making her scream but actually she's faking it!!

I was strictly referring to volume and not performance....... hence it sounds 80% as good.

Since it is all noise and hardly any extra jam she would be faking it!

In the future I will try and keep it clean. I was speaking figuratively of course. Ha Ha!!!
