Anyone using Top Gear exhausts?

Looking at buying a Top Gear Valvetronic exhaust and I've heard they are a high quality company. Only problem is I haven't seen or more importantly heard one on an M6.

Has anyone used this company before? Looks a lot like the Akra exhaust for about a 1/4 of the price.

Looks like a really good price for what you are getting. I found a youtube video but i would like to hear one with the valves completely open, in the video it sounds kind of quiet compared to my Eisenmann Sport but my valves are open and it sounds similar with the valves closed.

So I spoke with the Top Gear dealer here in New York and he quoted me about 2800 (maybe less) installed. So now I have two options. Buy a used exhaust from a forum member for about 3k +install or try this new exhaust and post some videos for you guys (valves open, drive by, inside sound, etc.)

What do you guys think I should do? I'm kind of leaning towards trying this exhaust because it looks beautiful, it's Valvetronic and should work great with my BM3 tune, and it's 100% stainless steel.

Does that $2800 include the pipes or just the rear section?

I have their rear section on my e46 m3. Its a nice piece. Sounds good. One of the tips is every so slightly crooked but not enough to bother me. Its barely noticeable.

So do you think I should pull the trigger and go with the full Top Gear exhaust?

Looks great Gosta! I'm really leaning towards it, good to hear the quality is that good.

Is not letting me down load the vid but there is one from togear on YouTube here's a pic of the tips. The vid is posted above and I believe that car had DP on with 200 cell cats I also installed a valtronic design to have full control of the valves on the exhaust
