Default Who is Running the Magnaflow Cat Back Exhaust?

I'm thinking of buying the Magnaflow Cat Back Exhaust (p/n 16602) for my 2001 M3. Anyone running this set up. Comments please.

Any used ones for sale?

I bought one for my first M3. Sounded great and no rasp, but the drone SUCKS! If you drive a lot between 2500 and 3000 rpm, be prepared to turn your music up loud.

I have one. It sounds good and is affordable. The drone I was fine with at first but now that I've had it for about 2 year I'm getting tired of it.

+1 on the drone, a buddy of mine has spent twice the cost of the system in fixes to rid himself of the drone. It's awful.

I just bought one used for a price I couldn't pass up. Haven't gotten it on the car yet, it's sitting in my garage, should have it on this week, I'll post back how I like it.

Oh, it also doesn't really fit worth a damn :p.

Took a lot of washer shimming braces etc until I got it right and the driver side tips will almost always hang a bit lower.

Not the best quality but:

Wow! thanks for the info.

I have the Magnaflow on my MCoupe, and the drone did get to me. Sound damping material in the trunk area helped.
