Solo mach shorty catback

Just installed the solo mach shorty gt/gxp catback a few days ago and I absolutely love it! I had a kid the other day in a 650i bmw tell me he thought it was a V8 and how amazing it sounded. Definitely notice a gain in HP and Torque throughout the rpm ranges especially around 60-80 mph. Here are a few vids I took real quick. Not the best quality but gives you a little idea of how it sounds. I planned to install some DT shortys but they wouldn't pass emissions in cali so I'm going to have to go JBA when I get my refund.
