I am in the process of making a decision between these two
1. Fabspeed x pipe with dual resonators for $750 with 15hp and 8ft/lbs gains or
2. AFE XP pipe with dual HFC and dual resonators for $1625 with 18hp and 8ft/lbs gains

To me the least expensive option with desent results is Fabspeed X pipe

You really can't go wrong with any of these, can you?

Not a fan of the blue tips, though... makes me think of the 350Z forums I used to frequent.

Are you talking about these pipes: http://www.eagleday.com/bmwm3e92x2nc...d=18283950120?

I do like the keeping the car look and feel as stock as possible, so I'm with you on option 1. Also, 'howdy' from a fellow Houstonian.

Anyone (or the next few to read) recommend AFE vs. REMUS? Any brand preferrable over the other? Any droning? Any suggestions or comments in general would help. Thanks in advance.

DLSJ5 makes over 700whp with his VT3 supercharged setup equipped with a Macht Schnell X-Pipe and OEM muffler.

ESS VT3 Supercharged - Update after almost 2 years and 15K miles...

Obviously, no issues with restriction and proven power.

It made really good power, FWIW is was ~711whp, the MS X pipe also sounded nice paired with the OEM muffler.

usually the x-pipe paired with all other bolt on's and a tune will get you 4-5hp !!!

the most power comes from the catless pipes + tune (30-40hp)

Quick video i did of my ActiveAutowerke Axleback with test pipes, mic was not picking up the deeper notes especially easing out in 1st gear but it gives an idea.
