Currently have no desire to purchase an after market cat back, the stock does so well at making it quiet when needed. Not sure how much power difference there would be if this stock cat back is chocking it.

Axle backs are more for sound than anything. I just wasn't happy with the sound, but my car also had the secondary cats and resonator deleted. You're not missing any power as they mostly come from the down pipes and/or tune. Some even say that midpipes don't add any real power.

the set i received didn't fit so ended up installing a set of AA downpipes. i really wanted to use the ARM pipes due to reduction in rasp. ARM's customer service was great and they handled the return without issue.

I have these on my F80, fit perfect, sound amazing. Double checked and there's clearance everywhere, no vibration at any rpm.

Did you upgrade to resonated DPs yet? If you did, curious to know how that worked out.

I have these on my car. They fit with no issues, no vibrations, nothing. Stock mids and muffler. Sounds stock with the valve closed. Still sounds stock but deeper with the valve open. Really like them.

No, I haven't purchased these. Going to sell this car so don't plan on any new mods.

Hi guys!

I'm very hesitant to buy them.

There are people who say that they brush against their aluminum pan and others who don't.

I am also afraid that the sound is too loud, I go with the standard exhaust.

The point of this setup is to cut down on rasp.

All catless pipes are going to be louder than pipes with cats.

Me and my friend purchased a set of the ARM CATTED downpipes and installed on our cars with no fitment issues at all. Yes they include a small spacer for additional clearance so no worries there. We were both coming from catless downpipes that we were unhappy with the loudness. The catted downpipes were much less raspy.

I’m considering buying a set of their resonated downpipes now to see how they sound. I would not be worried about fitment at all

Their customer support was amazing and I'd give them another shot.

My AA downpipes plus ZCP exhaust is a little too raspy and I've been meaning to have my local shop do a custom equal length mid-pipe.

So i was looking the ARM Resonated DPsand the pic on the site is showing them with a flex section. Have they added the flex pipe to the F80 DPs or is that just a website error?
