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

That "burning" smell started to disappear around 1200-1500 miles. Every now and then, when I do a 50-100mph run, I'll smell it, but largely, it's gone...

I didn't pay $1200.

I paid $1350 or 70 for the Exhaust and Grilles installed, combined since it was done before I picked up the car (Port Install so to speak).

So, all in, would I do it again? Yeah, I like the rumble, it's nice and deep, and frankly, unless you go full cat back, which will yield decibels that I view unacceptable for all the highway driving i do, this is the next best thing. Once I add a downpipe, I think it'll sound pretty awesome and driveable for day to day...your biggest gains, IMO, are eliminating the cats...these stock pipes are damn efficient, the engineers squeezed out every bit of efficiency in developing them.

Is the soot on the chrome pipes annoying? I have the black Sport Line tips and am somewhat reluctant to go PE simply because of the aesthetics of a constantly sooty tip. Am I over exaggerating? Is the soot really that bad?

The tips are so thin on the M Performance Exhaust that you really don't have any of the "soot" problems associated with the thicker, rolled pipes that you get with the standard M Sport exhaust.

Yeah soot is minimal...it's laser etched and super thin, so hardly any deposits.

The Inside of the tips have them, but I have to bend down and be cleaning the //M logo to notice it...

Still owe everyone a dyno...

For those of whom had the PE as port installed option did they give your stock exhaust back? Maybe wrap it up and throw it in the trunk?

No, the car was delivered without the original grilles and exhaust.

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).
Stupid question....but I thought Sport, Comfort, and even Eco all put out the same horsepower....it's simply a matter of more aggressive shift points between the different modes. So....why would Sport mode sound louder at an idle?

The valve is always open in sport mode. (If MPE retains it, but I guess so)
