My Ride: 2004 M3
Today I got the dixis installed as well as new front rotors and took the opportunity to install akebono ceramic pads. Wanted to try ceramic pads as the oem pads produce so much brake dust! I haven't had a good chance to drive the car, but driving around town here are my first impressions:

Akebono pads - Feels like oem. Brake bite is good and stopping feels just like my previous oem pads. No squeaks, nothing.

Dixis exhaust - On idle sounds like oem. Was very surprised how quiet it is on idle. I remember my custom exhaust on my EVO was much louder on idle. As the revs go up, it does get quite loud, but still tolerable Cruising at 60km/hr is fine, no drone. Will have to see tomorrow when I take her to work when I drive on the highway.

My mechanic couldn't get the dixis to sit perfectly. The right side sits a bit lower but he got it as best he can. It's not too bad.
