Thanks for your understanding.
Thanks for the feedback everyone. We went through a lengthy process with this exhaust system and we feel we are right in the middle as far as sound, etc.

p.s. Nawaaz congrats on the Moderator status.

I was heading home from dinner with my girl at night in Aventura and a black M3 passed me. It had a really nice rumble coming from it. I knew by the sound it was an AA exhaust. It was confirmed when it passed and I saw the signature noise canceling chambers. The thing looked first class.

I have the AA exhaust - great sound but I wanted it a little louder. So I went with an Xpipe with resonators without HFC's(Didn't want the CEL issues). The drone is loud. It's been 2 days- maybe things might settle since I had some things rattle inside the cabin with the vibrations- that was the first day. Today I didn;t have any rattling.

deleting secondary cats barely adds any sound. you mean you still have primary cats? it should just be slightly louder but more aggressive. .... I don't know, don't think mine drones, much, just a slight bit at a few RPM throttle combos.

Maybe the xpipe needs to break in a little?

There are no cats in the x-pipe. But yes exhaust can break in, and when it does it gets louder, not quieter as many people on this forum state.

Yeah, it's louder and more aggressive. I can feel a difference as it revs faster and doesn't feel restricted as much. I kept the front cats. I am getting used to the sound. I'm glad I got the resonators coz who knows how bad the drone would be like.

I did not fee any difference by deleting my secondary cats, just a much better sound.

Yes, good call on the resonators, the car would sound horrible without them in my opinion.
