Is it just the cat back, or are you catless as well?

Just the cat back or on BMW's they just call it a rear section.

I come from muscle cars where you can get FULL, cat back, or axle back.

I LOVE MY ATAK!!

There is no drone at all for me after about 9 months, and I had the OE Mod before that for 3-4 months I think.

I don't think the ATAK is really any louder, it is just much deeper and throatier. In comparison the OE Mod has more of a bark and it is higher pitched, at times unrefined. I honestly think the EO Mod is louder at cold start and WOT as far as db levels are concerned, but of course the bass of the ATAK is a very noticeable difference.

The ATAK is just an overall much better and more refined sound as its a complete designed system, not a modded one, if that makes sense. It really produces a great sound, I much prefer the ATAK. If you like a more high pitched sounding system, the Corsa would be my 2nd choice. Also ZERO drone there.

How do you know it doesn't fit with a diffuser? I emailed Borla asking if they have any fitment issues with diffusers and they said no. I'd like to get the ATAK with a diffuser.

But did you heard (noticed) your *cold start clunk noise* in your video ?

Cold start first thing in the morning is like taking a shot of espresso.
