Frank, I'm not surprised. I've heard many comments on here to the effect that an exhaust settles and quiets down once it breaks in. With all of the aftermarket exhausts I've had, I've found the opposite to be true. While the exhausts I've had did tend to "mellow out" a bit in terms of their tone, every one of them became a little louder volume-wise than they were initially.

I hope it works out for you though because it really is a great exhaust for the most part.

Tlud: I believe that the packing/muffling materials in the muffler deteriorate slowly over time, causing the "muffler" aspect to lose its primary function.

MGZT: I MAY go to the meet at Hooter's on 59 and Kirby this Sunday at 11:00 am. I'm not sure though, because work has been a killa this week and all next week.

I got mine installed >1 month ago.
If it get's louder than what it is I'm going to enjoy the exhaust even more. It's not very loud the way it is, only on startup but once I'm on the highway I don't hear the low rpm noise. So far I've been very satisfied with this exhaust.

Hey Andrew, did you every hear back from AA was to whether their software will reduce the low RPM 'boominess'? I have the same issue with my set-up and I'm trying to find out what my options are to remedy this...

Dinan is your best bet to avoid boomy and drone. I'm actually probably gonna go with Dinan for my E90 this time around. I've out grown the "I gotta have a loud exhaust" phase in my life. I just want something louder than stock, but quieter than all the other after-market solutions.

The AA is still a great exhaust if you can live with the loudness in the cabin.

What's the word on Remus Sport (not Race)? How does it compare with the "tolerable" list above especially from a cabin-drone/boominess perspective?

Supposedly pretty good, but no e90 version so I haven't tried it. I'm just posting what I've tried and heard in person over more than just a few miles
