There will be initially with any exhaust, however, over the miles (between 250-500) it mellows out and becomes imperceptible.
Not sure why the price difference, the 535 RPI exhaust is ~$2500, I guess it depends on the complexity of the design. They really do engineer them for max HP/TQ gains as well as sound
Besides, Eisemann and Meistercraft are both almost $2000 more

Looks great, man! Are those led side markers significantly brighter than the OEM ones?

They are brighter (since there's 5 LEDs replacing the single OEM bulb) and the smoked lenses really blend better with the car.
