Thumbs up Another Active Autowerke happy customer review

****Vids added on 2nd page****


First of all I want to say thank you to Omar and all Active crew for the excellent service and top notch quality product. I just got the Signature X pipe w/ cat delete, Signature exhaust and software all done at the same time. All I can say is WOW

This system will blow you away with the "intoxicating" sound it produces. It's absurd the difference in sound and feel the car makes after the kit. You don't want to stop driving, it just brings the M alive. You can really feel an increase in power specially in low and mid rpm's where we need most for the M. The videos posted doesn't really do justice for real life sound the car makes.

I would strongly recommend if you are in FL to come and check personally their full exhaust setup. You'll be sold. Amazing construction and attention to details on their products.

I'll get some vids later but here are some pics:

No drone at all, that's the beauty of AA Signature exhaust. It's quiet when you want it to be but if you floor it, the animal comes alive. The only bad side is that this thing is "addicting"

Beautiful! Does your car have resonators? If yes, do they offer a non resinated version?

You don't want to remove the resonators, it'll drone all over your cabin. They offer a race version (No cats, first and secondary) and a High-flow cat version (No secondary cats). I have the race version. Sligthly louder and a few extra hp over high-flow cats.

only thing I can add is it looks like the pipes stick out to much, like those gray dogs that have tails that look like a D**K .. ..

You can adjust it, I plan on hiding it a bit more.

What does deleting the secondary cats do to emissions? And you have all cats deleted? No emissions checkin in South Florida?

Not sure but I don't have any cats. SOFL has no emissions check point. They offer a high-flow setup for you guys that needs to do smog test.

The software will erase CEL and offer lots of extras on top of that.

Looking good. Lord almighty there are more AW M3's down here than I can count!

FYI deleting the secondary cats will not throw a code, as they are located behind the rear o2 sensors.

Dear Omar,

Thanks for you superb customer service and patience especially with handling my previous X-pipe order and also ECU Performance upgrade. I received my ECU today in Brunei via UPS. I've installed the ECU and have bolted on the X-pipes this evening at my bro-in-law's workshop. To date I still can't get over how insane your X-pipes have made my Vorsteiner Exhaust sound, not to mention the performance gain.

My ///M definitely sounds and performs like a dream. Although I haven't dyno-ed my ride, the incremental gains can be felt whilst driving my baby around the town and highway to help the ECU adapt.

Many thanks to you and you esteemed company all the way from lil old Brunei.
