If I get the F1 or Full exhaust system.
1. It is quieter or near no exhaust note than stock while valve is closed? I can only hear M3's beautiful engine noise?
2. valve open, I loose torque/hp?
3. valve close, I gain torque/hp?
4. auto mode, it is quieter than than stock after reach certain RPM, It will get super loud like night and day difference?

Thanks!!

I can only answer for the Full system.

1. Yes, there is a little hint of exhaust noise, and I mean little... you can easily miss it.
2. Probably gain some HP, lose TQ. Probably not noticeable. Getting rid of primary cats will give you more power.
3. probably gain TQ, and lose HP. Probably not noticeable. Getting rid of primary cats will give you more power.
4. Yes, if you hook it up (I haven't hooked it up because I don't want to tap the wire yet..)

Is there any drone in the cabin?

I thought the full system doesn't have any cats?!
Does the remote control works flawless? I don't want to wake up the neighbors 3 am in the morning.

With the valve closed, no drone at all... I'm very sensitive to it because my 2 year old sleeps in the car. Open the valve, and there is drone....

Full system doesn't have cats. I had magnaflow HF cats installed. Hated the stink. Remote works flawlessly. You won't wake up the neighbors with the valve closed.

The remote works great and the valves close/open very quickly. I personally love the smell, especially when running 100 octane!

^+1 remote and valves are work great. I have had electronic cuts before and the vacuum valve is superior. Opens very fast (1 sec? vs 5 secs for e cutout) and from what I have read the vacuum is superior in terms of reliabilty.
I think I am goign to find a spot to velcro the remote to a lower part of the dash. I wont carry it in my pocket and it is a bit of a pain to grab from ashtray and hit button.

I keep mine on my car key and just plug in the key so it's easily accessible.

I think i am going to use 3m double tape and place it somewhere on the steering (ofcourse not visable) So i can hit it without takin gmy hand off.

so if i get the F1 system with the cat bypass, then im at little to no risk of throwing a CEL, but if i get the primary cat deleted then im at a greater risk of the CEL?

The cel fixes are located in the section 1 pipes on both the F1 and sport systems. Please feel free to PM me if you have anymore questions.
