Got a new exhaust today

Spent a few hours at SP Engineering ( SP Power index ) today getting an RD Sport Competition exhaust and RD X-Pipe. The guys at SP did a great job and the car sounds perfect (should have come from the factory like this). Aggressive but not obnoxious and no dreaded drone.

Years ago Alex (owner of SP) helped me setup my M3 turbo and did an amazing job. Its nice to see that their service is still top notch. Plus, the new facility (probably 5 times larger than the last shop) is packed with exotics and some pretty bad arse turbos. Alex if you are reading this, sorry for the drool on the R34 I could'nt help myself. Thanks again!

Pics and vid to follow...need some sleep.

Thanks! Actually just mounted a cheap Canon Powershot to the diffuser. My neighbor has a really nice HDR that I will use on the next video.
