Remus teaser - Thanks x-ph.com!

Just a teaser of my muffler exhaust!
Will do full review and video soon (when my car return from service).
Thanks to Mike of Extreme Power House for all

Sounds perfect with the downpipe

No, in comfort and eco you can notice that you have the exhaust at 2-2500 rpms but it is not intrusive.

With the JB4 in map1 and sport mode full-throttle is great!
Daily driving at the highway is barely noticeable until you press the gas to pass.

Interesting, I've come to a conclusion that the drone I have from AA is based on the oil I am using. ODD but true last thing I used the ceratec with oil as protection for engine and I never felt one single drone !! however on the next oil change i didn't use it and drone came back again lol

AA exhaust is more agressive and if you have a downpipe it will be louder at 2-2500 rpm's. I hear it in person and it is awesome.

Installation of the AA is more custom than the remus.

Both are great exhaust

Kendroz do you have golf-tee mod too ?
Can you record a video for us ?
How similar it is to 335 stock exhaust?
My buddy has a X3 35i w/ Golf-Tee Mod, Stock exhaust and sounds amazing at any speed rpms.
My neighbor's 335i MT w/ Stock exhaust sounds nice but with the golf-tee mod adds that extra touch.
I know the 35i's sounds good from idle compared to our N20, but when I have golf-tee mod it sounds much better than when I don't (sounds either too quiet or like a weak 4cyl)

Rob, I hope service will return my car this week. Once I have it, will post video. The remus has a place to install the sensor so it is doing nothing. Sound is very nice so wait for the video. Take care.

Ok here is the review of the exhaust so far:

Packaging
Complete instructions with documents and templates to cut (if you have the quad exhaust). Good padding on the box.

Installation:
Very easy, just cut the actual exhaust where indicated by the instructions. Removal of the actual exhaust take more time than the install. Unplug the actuator from the old exhaust and put it on the dummy base provided by the new exhaust. Everything align perfectly so no adjustments or vibrations after.
Exhaust is lighter than oem by far and smaller.

First engine start and ride
With my current config (DP,JB4) it sound perfect but not intrusive. When cold, the first 45 seconds is a nice growl, after that a low rumble. If you press the gas it will let you know you are running an exhaust
Highway cruise at 65mph is normal until you hit the gas. Changing car modes will open the exhaust more (sport,sport+) but you will never have the boy-racer sound and vibration. Burble is nice but not very pronounced (like the m-performance).

Conclusions
In my opinion this is a very mature exhaust with excellent sound for the daily driven BMW. Also i felt the car more eager to rev and very loose. Recommended for anyone looking to have more rumble without waking up the neighbors.

If you want more sound you can opt for the AA route. My friend has it with the same mods i have and it sounds great too.

My thank's for x-ph.com for their fantastic support, especially Mike

ps: waiting for my brothers cam for the video.
