It sounds crazily deep when you hit the floor but at cruising speed you won't notice much. I'm searching for a good deal on M6 eisenmann. However, the throttle body, in my opinion create a weird effect when the car down shift. I'm not sure since I'm not car professional, but whenever the automatic down shift, the car feels like someone kick its butt. LOL
Hmm... I guess I'll just install it and see what happens

Definitely a sound and throttle response improvement over stock even with stock exhaust.
