Yes, many have said this system sounds great; I think the only concern of many of us who live in areas that see very cold and very hot are worried about the TI exhausts holding up. Too many stories about TI exhausts cracking.......that being said, if you are looking at TI exhausts despite their drawbacks, then this exhaust I think is a great deal.

Cheers,

I can confirm, it doesn't drone. It's louder than stock but no drone.

The weight savings and pricepoint is what drew me to purchase the VRS exhaust, these numbers only make it that much sweeter.

Nick: Thanks for posting the dyno, those are pretty impressive gains from a cat-back system.

Does anyone have pics with the standard tips? ("non-torched blue")

How much sound dampening material is put into this? It sounds pretty muffled to me. If it was a lot louder I probably would have purchased it. I loved the TI GruppeM I had on my E46 M3 and was hoping this would be just as loud.

I'm not quite sure how to answer that question, you want an exact weight of the sound deadening?

This exhaust was just recently covered by WCF:
