Hey guys, im new to the forums and had a few questions and wanted to share my experiences. I just had the exhaust installed and it sounds amazing but at highway speed it does drone just a little. Its only when im on the gas i dont know if that means it drones or if thats just loud. The cat-back exhaust pretty much eliminates the resontator and the secondary muffler? I think? My car is a 2002 330ci, it being a 5 speed may attribute to the noise/drone as well. I also took a pic to see if my subframe was good and i noticed a very small hole. Ill upload pics of the exhaust and subframe. If you guys can share your wisdom much appricated! I will post a sound clip soon as well!

Photo 4308 is a pic of the roll bar bushing and holder. The hole is supposed to be there. BMW fixed the subframe issues for the 2002 model year.

Thanks for reassuring me on the subframe guys. It doesnt look bad any way. I just picked up the car its a one owner and looked like it wasnt driven hard so was just double checking. And the exhaust is pretty well made bolted right up took the shop 15-20 mins to put in and sounds great!
