update, was wayyyyyy toooo loud and annoying, had him weld on the normal 4.6 exhausts and left it how I had it....

returned all the parts and got my money back, got new spark plugs installed and a small alignment done too, going to just keep the exhaust system the way it is!

Hehe.. I was telling you. The I6 can scream depending on the setup. And trust me, my setup is still 10X louder than what you experienced LoL..

And, Im assuming your virgin 4.6 axle backs are now cut and re-welded? I still think you should have used mufflers instead of resonators.

Dang, thats pretty cool you were able to get a refund! Well at least you know what exhaust tone you prefer now.

Those new shoes will definitely bring the ride to life!

Last year I took my X5 to a DYI shop to use a lift. The front shaft guido was replaced. While I had it up in the air, a tech came by. He stated he has seen a lot of BMWs there. A lot of them for exhaust work. He says they come back to remove mods and install back OEM exhaust. Or another change is made.
