That Open/Close comparison is so fake. When they say valve closed, they turn down the volume so you cannot even hear the engine, then it cuts to valve open and sound is enhanced and you can hear the noise of the engine.

I am looking for an exhaust upgrade myself, but such videos make me annoyed by the brand, so hard to find a fair comparison...

To be fair, the fi exhaust with valves open and closed is night and day. I have it on my 335i and I am also catless. It's awesome how quiet it can be

Yeah, never a good sign when the manufacturer's video is trying some "slight of hand" vs just recording how it sounds.

Good catch - you can tell immediately after startup all the background noise hits a new low.

Bullshit...
