Full Challenge Exhaust - Cold start/idle/Flyby/Hard Acceleration

I've been wanting to do this for some time now but just haven't gotten around to it. It's my attempt to capture the Full Challenge exhaust note with Sport X-Pipe on my 2012 E92. I filmed it on Long Island using the Drift Ghost-S cam with external mic, which is a notch better than the built-in mic. You can hear where it comes up short during some footage, but overall did pretty well given the task. Should I have used a better aftermarket mic for a sound reference video? Probably. But being cooped up all winter, I was itching to get out and do something M related! You get it.....
With that, enjoy

Sounds pretty good, so is it a Challenge rear section as well?

How's the in-cabin experience while cruising or in stop-and-go?

Sounds great! Are you able to pass emissions inspection with it?

Pretty awesome in both scenarios. I have my trunk lined with Dynamat, so it's muted just enough for my liking.

Interesting. How much did that set you back if you don't mind me asking? Also, how much weight did it add?

100 sf of 80 mil was about $200. I have 50 ft left so order 50, should be plenty as you get efficient at installing as you go along. The weight is peanuts, maybe 15lb., which was saved by installing the exhaust. Of course, everything went out the door with the 70lb+ I added with the s/c, lol.
