Love the AWE Touring for the F56S. Installation without a lift wasn't too bad. A good set of ramps or jackstands will do the trick(be careful). Word to the wise soak the nut on the vband clamp with a good penetrate ( I mix CRC and ATF in a squirt bottle) this will do the trick. A little anti-seize on the new nuts and bolts is a plus. Took under an hour start to finish. Nice job AWE Great fit and finish
The sound is great, nice deep rumble, no fart cannon here, more mid range power is immediate. .

Thank you Outmotoring for your fast free shipping and GREAT pricing.

Glad you're loving it, and also glad you thought to lube the clamps! Great job, and thanks for the kind words.

Post a clip - let's hear it!

Hey RSL!

I am expecting to see some units very soon, actually!

I love my touring edition... but now that my wife has her own MINI Roadster and rarely drives my F56 anymore, I kinda wish I had the track edition. Problem is, my kit came 2 clamps short, so I welded the whole thing up. :-(

What?! Wish ya contacted me so I could have gotten clamps out to ya next day I'm sorry that happened!

Don't regret going Touring, though. It would be my pick too! 180 Technology® tunes the soundtrack nicely.

Yeah, it didn't doubt ya'll would have taken care of it. But the car was up on the lift, old exhaust out, then I realized the clamps were missing. Didn't have much choice at that point than to weld er up. Not a big deal, Id actually prefer it that way anyway, no chance for leaks. I've got a catless downpipe I'll be putting on soon, maybe today. Hoping that puts the sound right where I want it. But I love it otherwise, and everyone else does too! :-)

Actually, I do have one other issue. The hangars on your exhaust are 1/8" larger diameter than the rubber hangars on the car. You can see on my photo above that the rubber hangar is already tearing right after I installed (on the short hangar before the muffler). The other one has been fine after the muffler, not sure why, but Ive gone through 3 of the rubber ones on the front, it seems to stretch it out too much, and after about a week I get a rattle from the exhaust riding on the braces. Right now I've got a couple hose clamps holding it up :-/ Other than THAT I love it haha

Odd and interesting. We have not received such a complaint before. It could be a function of the tube being welded, causing some unintended preload on the rubber. Not entirely sure.

If it was an issue during development, it would not be a "thing" so to speak.

I thought the 180 Technology was part of the resonator - not the muffler.

AWE Tuning 180 Technology® works a little something like this: As exhaust gases exit the engine and flow into an AWE Tuning 180 Technology® equipped resonator, they pass through strategically located ports, and into reflection chambers.

Negative. The 180 Technology® resonator is in the rear, not in the mid pipe.

What is in the mid pipe? Looks like a resonator.

I did buy shortly after release, when they were discounted. Maybe an issue from first run? It doesn't look like anything is wrong, just seems to me that the rubber is just being stretched too far, and then eventually tearing. Who knows LOL

There's no room for deviation as the fixtures are laser-cut off of what was laser scanned in development -- i.e. the same has been used from the beginning.

Did the DP go on?!
