Magnaflow bad at all. A lot of higher end makes use it as well. They even sell a full catback kit for the M3 which has gotten pretty good reviews...

Magnaflow might not be bad if you're running a full cat-back system designed for the car. These ones looked like universal magnaflow mufflers w/ the AMG tips poorly welded on (trust me, if you saw it in person, you'd ask what the original owner was thinking also). Once MJ took it to AAA, it looked 10 x's better and piping looked a lot better.

Looked worse in person, MJ. I just didn't want you to feel too down. Once AAA was done with it, it looked and sounded much better.

That's awesome. Did she notice the sidemarkers too? BTW, where are the pics of the sidemarkers?

Why'd you paint the clear ones? Don't the orange ones have better fitment?

had to go to body shop today after work and didn't have time...
plus, i asked them to remove the markers and paint them initially but they weren't sure of how to remove them... so i just gave them clear ones... better than having them scratch the impact strip...
