Looks a lot like http://www.quicktimeperformance.com/QTEC/specs.php

I gotta say, $425 + install to get that sound seems a lot cheaper than buying an after market dual/quad exhaust setup.

It's to change the tone of the exhaust. The driver can open or close the vent and have a stock sounding car or an aggressive sound depending on his mood.

See here for all official F10 specs, including acceleration times:

Yeah, this is definitely aftermarket. It's not just a flap that opens within the muffler to make it louder (like in a corvette), these valves bypass the mufflers all together. Check out my buddies build thread, you can see his install and videos for his exhaust cut-outs.

Figure ~$300 for the electronic cut out + $~300 for a good exhaust shop to do the install. $600 is still way cheaper then an axel back system for the F10. I think this just might be my first mod.

No thanks, why not just put glass packs on there

Better yet buy a better exhaust, I bet Eisenmann will have a great set coming

What kind of change in power would one expect when the flap is opened?

Glass packs? This isn't a 69' Camaro.

For the same aforementioned reasons... $$$

You can bet a decent cat-back system for the 550i will start at $1,600. With cutouts you're saving yourself $1,000+ and retain the stock look while getting the rumble.

Look at all the guys doing muffler deletes on their 335i's, you'll get pretty much the same effect with cutouts.

Muffler deletes belong on civics. I know a handful do it, but it really sounds bad.
