Nice quality. How do you get your camera mounted?

I mount the camera on a standard tri pod with three tie down straps to hold it in place. The tri pod works good for track videos as well - nice and stable.

Thanks for the great pics and vid, V_Z.

The sound is perfect and the drone isn't bad, I could hear the wind noise even while you were dragging the throttle. To be honest, this is what the car should sound like stock to me.

I'll put my order in soon after I get the car delivered. Any shops have this system for a particularly good price?

I installed my Borla last fall, and it did drone a bit in the 1200-2000 rpm range for about 10 days or so. It was never that bad. But, then, once everything settled in, it quieted down. Frankly, spending $3k + on nothing more than some pipes and mufflers is crazy. And, let's be honest, unless you are going to go whole hog and spend $6k + to get a new mid section (cat delete, etc.), all you are buying is mufflers and some connecting pipes, nothing more.

There are now two types of Borla exhaust for the M3. The old one has two mufflers while the the newer one has four, similar to the Ericsson exhaust. Which one is the louder of the two?

Exactly. That's why I ordered an Agency Power Exhaust for my car. Same T304 SS and tubing as most of the other exhausts for this, just half the price.

I'm guessing whichever one has the larger muffler can is quieter.

Single canister is the existing S-type with a more agressive, louder sound. The dual canister is the new touring type, with a more mellow rumble and less loud.
