I saw after posting the air thank in the trunk.
If you don't know what you bought I can't know. I heard a sport exhaust,and this is why I decided to get it,and it doesn't sound like that. This is very raspy.It was catted though. Maybe you are decat.
Yes, I am decatted. Catless plays a huge role in the raspy tone
I was sent this exhaust for SEMA 2019 at Milltek Sport's booth, I'm not fully aware of the full spec of this exhaust setup. I do know it's Catless and it's the "sport" version.

Oh that makes sense. I'm not a fan a decat sound. Also the smell is terrible I like the sound the guy from Spain posted. It's raspy but not that much

Ok,ok I did it this is the main difference. I have to say there is some quality but nothing comparable to the brand I represent. There is a price difference though. Before someone asks I didn't get it ( which o could have gotten for free) because they make only catless bundle and I don't like being without cats

This is a small video. As you can see it is still new and it's blowing white vape

DB - still no issues without the OPF’s?
I’ve had the opf back Milltek race system fitted but still not happy with the sound (or lack of).

Thinking of fitting the sports cats and removing the OPFs - assume it doesn’t need a remap?

No issues without OPFs. I have old DME software and it doesn't detect missing OPFs when replaced with hif low cats, so no faults on my car.

I actually sold my Milltek mid & rear a few montsh ago, I just didn't like the sound. It's not e milltek problem, all these systems just amplify the not very good S55 sound, i'm much happier with OE mid and rear with Milltek HI flow secondary CATs in place of OPF.

So now I've got decat DPs to go on in the new year, but the secondary CATs will allow me to pass UK emissions test come the time.

The only way to get a proper I6 sound is to go down the route of a bespoke "equal length" system that I'll be getting made up in the new year to test. Nobody makes one so I'm doing it myself...

Awesome! Have they given you any feedback on their thoughts about this design route? Are they reading the forums to get some idea

I'm booked it at a local custom stainless place on 3rd Feb for a measure up and see what we can do.

I’ve not actually spoken to them - all via email so not had the chance to discuss what they’re thinking of doing.
I’m sure they’ll have some idea of the best way to go!
When I originally emailed to ask about doing this I sent the link from the long thread on the M3 forum, so I guess they’ll have seen the interest in creating something.

Same as everyone else they'll know the S55 sounds like crap, just louder crap with an after market pipe on...
