I have some on my IG story highlights (1, 2, 3) from couple months ago. Just some revs in the shop though, no fly-by etc.

Yeah I can understand that. Maybe we can get other tips and subtract the difference. I have to say that carbon tips look nice.

Not really to be honest and there are various reasons. Akrapovic has the best build quality IMO and the catback version saves about 33lbs if I remember right (Mine only drops ~20lbs). The main reason I didn't/couldn't even consider it was the cost. $7K for a catback is pretty steep for me. I'm also not a huge fan of the soundtrack of Akra. It's definitely better than M3/M4 version but still not what I was looking for. I probably could live with how it sounds if it was priced the same as my current setup but price difference was crazy.

After looking closer at some pictures of these Remus setups, it appears the valve location is further towards the rear of the car and the wires connected to the valve actuators are stretched a bit with some looking stretched the to point of being stressed. I'm concerned about exhaust movement while in motion and under forces causing issues with the wiring. Can anyone with first-hand experience comment on this?

It comes with extension cables. The stock valves do not even reach the new location of the valve actuator. You have to use the extension cables which have a decent length. None of the cables on mine is anywhere near being strecthed. In fact, I even zip tied mine so that they don't dangle.

Thanks! I didn't really want to cross post but you never know who is looking at which threads.
