Question M Performance Exhaust on the F30?

I just purchased a 2012 335i (F30) and wanted to get some Dinan parts installed prior to picking it up next week - only to find that Dinan hasn't released anything.

I ended up getting the dealership to match the 15% special Dinan is currently offering, and got the exhaust purchased and installed for $1100 (or something).

First, I haven't seen "exhaustive" reviews of the M Performance on the 2012-2013 F30's...any thoughts?

Sound?
Sight?
Fury?

Additionally, I don't expect massive gains (Dinan quotes only a few for their exhaust system), but has anyone actually dynoed pre and post?

Thanks!

there are some posts in this N55 section with sound clips of the exhaust.

See this one for example: http://www.f30post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=755754

you need about 1000 miles to break down the sound insulation, it sounds better over time everyone says. how do you think it compares to stock?

OH! That explains it...yeah, it's breaking in for sure, it's got a stink to it right now...(burning stink).

Compared to stock, distinct, but not V8 loud. In sport, the burble is awesome. You won't hear it under comfort or Eco Pro.

When you want to hear it (WOT), it's about 15% more noticeable. The HKS exhaust would be louder (if that's an option for some).

if I could just learn how to embed the video, I could show everyone, lol!

Mine was recorded in my garage, so it should've been louder...I think the breakin period might be warranted for a full assessment, the 15% louder is my opinion.

So from the videos I just watched, the exhaust sounds pretty soft when it is first installed and not broken in, but after 1K Miles and broken in, it sounds deep and nice.

Is this the consensus with everyone who has one of these exhausts?

Yup, and I'm at a total of 1500 miles on it now, and it's still getting deeper...I'm loving it.
