LOL

Have you thought of installing resistors to correct the error light?

Personally, I like having high beams instead.

Just another thing for them to steal.

That's just NY for you. Random theft and vandalism. I'd be more pissed about the damage too. The perp probably doesn't even own a BMW.

I've had an Agency, Dinan, and currently SuperSprint. The Agency was really loud, Dinan not loud enough, and SS was perfect IMO.

OP, the Dinan free flow exhaust is a waste of money IMO. You're better off with a Magnaflow.
