I have very similar ones. My only 2 comments are (1) beware of how tight they fit - mine are now practically permanent and (2) damn LED flickering on start up.

Mein Auto: '10 E61 535i xdrive
Started lurking a few months back when I got the BMW bug, this forum was amazingly helpful in learning about the E60/61 and what to look/lookout for. Thanks to all!
Found my black/black E61 spur of the moment the end of December at the local dealer and went for it. Only wish it were a manual but love every minute in the car! Still can't help but smile when I slide it into Dynamic Shift and fly!
Sorry for the bad pic, the snow is still melting here! Don't knock my Drag DR-37s w/ Xice3s, this is MN!Click image for larger version

@kswan23, I can post up some other videos as it sounds the same, was gonna do the mag flow Exhaust. But I liked the the sound of the muff Delete better and I do believe the 530 is a v6 as mine is the v8 , so there will b a sound Difference but will post the sound of the v6 , this is the 545i

, and this 1 is the 530i

Hope this helps u on ur Decision

Thank you for the vids. You are right. Mine is a v6. I've seen a couple of YouTube vids of muff deletes on 530 and they all sound awesome. I guess, the only thing I am worried about is highway riding and if it would sound really loud in the cabin on highway rides. Also, does this effect emissions at all?
