Since not everyone is visiting the Magnaflow group buy thread regularly, I'm posting my pics and vids in a new thread.

The exhausts look very nice. All of the bends are clean and the installation is solid. The Magnaflow logo is not visible as it is tucked under the bumper cover opening.

I don't have a hi def camcorder and made do with my low res one.

There a bit of wind blowing which affects the recording:

I brought the car inside and made another one:

I don't want to do more than 40 in neighborhood streets, the cops are ticket happy these days.

My thoughts and comments are in the Magnaflow group buy thread.

The sound is ok in the videos. Then again, it probably sounds better in person. As previously mentioned, the install looks good.

Are they planning on offering this with the GS tips so it fits ours?

Oh and Goobee, are you tuned or anything, or is that what it sounds like on stock tune?

No, the prototype was built to my car's specs. Someone will need to pony up their GS for fitment.

Made on stock settings. Note that the cruise control indicator is on.

I think it looks really good. I am not sure if I want to spend more money on this car, but might be tempted depending on price.

Still have not heard from Magnaflow. I'm guessing the bean counters are factoring parts and manufacturing costs together (purely conjecture on my part).

There is some drone but not too bad at speed and cruising in high gear. Any time you give it gas, it starts snarling again.

I kinda like it; I wonder what they're doing for the GS...

Probably nada. They didn't have anything for the Turbo until I ponied up my car. With the flush bumper outlets of the GS, I doubt they'll attempt anything until they have a sample car.

Looks nice, just need to do something to fix the "parachute" where the old mufflers were.
