Hi there just wanted to know if you ended up getting that downpipe installed or not. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

Nice.
Did you get the catless or catted?
Did you put a spacer for the sensor to get rid of the CEL or you have a CEL?
How does it sound now?
I think you have the MPE on your car too.

I was running catless. Way too loud on the cold start, that's why I took it off.
May go with catted route. But need to do one more test beforehand.
I use O2 Sim, which was working for a few months until dealership was working on a recall on the fuel temperature sensor.

I have the stock exhaust with the resonator delete but I want just a little more sound.

I think the catted downpipe might be what I'm after. I just want a little more sound when I go wide open throttle.

I test drove a 540I with MPE & thought it sounded amazing except on the highway cruising speed it would be a continuous hummmm almost like drone to me.

Keep me updated once you get the catted downpipe.

I have noticed a lot of DP are coming without bracket!!.

Entire exhaust relay on it, in case of 540i g30. I just had fitted armytrix exhaust today.

Absolutly silly to sell DP without bracket to attach it. Front section of exhaust will sit on elastic part of DP. Just fly all over!! In the end will brake off... should be welded a bracket like in oryginal cat.

VSRF it seems to be missing it. The catted version is in price of catless ER. But ER comes with right bracket.

Cant be as... about CEL, anyone fitted 200 cell or 300 cell cat in b58 ??

I am about too. But been busy and need to do another testing with catless first.
200 or 300 cells will still throw CEL.

Downpipe with 200cel race cat is installed.
The tune will have to wait a few days due to some differentials in my hardware (I don't really know)

Sound is amazing, the combo race cat + M-performance pipe is a hit. No drone at any speed. Very sporty when pushing the gas. Some will think it's too loud and of course there's some that will think it's too quiet..
Cold start is a bit 'too much' for me but it's only a few seconds.
This new setup made me start driving a bit more sporty on curvy roads..

I have a gopro + microphone for my motorcycle so I will make a video, but after the tune.

Euro Spec have different CEL tollerance to catted downpipe.
If I remember correctly, 200 cells is the very minimum for Euro Spec without triggering CEL.
While US and Canadian market are different.
200 cells still trigger CEL. I believe we need 300 cells minimum.
