The exhaust I actually bought used from a member here. Magnaflow made it in house @ their facility for the customer with the quad tips (they do not sell it like this) It is a full catback, not an axle back. There is a slight drone around 2500 RPMs at part throttle. Install I did myself as I have my own shop and work for BMW Sound is very nice, has a deep tone to it, its not very loud at all. Debating on doing a catless DP but I had that setup on my E90 with an AA catback, sounded great but the noise got annoying after a while. Man I am getting old lol

Ive seen a few like you have mentioned. I really do not prefer that look. I like the all black look, to me it looks cleaner
