I'll second that there's a little bit of drone, doesn't bother me though. Borla is sending me a new exhaust, so I'll have this system for sale in a couple of days.

How did you get the tips to line up properly? I spent more time trying to get mine to look semi-even than I did installing!

lol. yeah they are a little annyoing to get right. Honestly just trial and error. When they are on the hangers you kinda have to keep playing with it until the tips are the right distance you want.

Installed it today. Like others have said it's pretty straightforward. WD40 or something similar on the rubber hangers to ease removal and installation. I used some M10 x 35 mm bolts for the flange. On the 2016 the bolts are welded to the muffler so there's no reusing them as the instructions indicate. Aligning the tips took just a few minutes. As far as sound goes I'm very pleased. Nice deep tone. Barely noticeable in the car when cruising. Perfect
