Till next spring n/a. But with a single 3" I am saving almost 30#'s and gaining a few hp up top. This exact exhaust dynoed around 7 hp/Tq higher than it's manga flow count parts. Also have BMW performance intake and no catilitic converters.

What did you do with the post cat o2 sensors? I have a 530i and was thinking about getting the racelands. How well would they mount up with the stock midpipe?

Did you ever get a video? And also, did you have to pull the passenger side motor mount to install these? Getting ready to do mine next week and just trying to figure out if I need an engine hoist or not...
