After reading a few reviews I went ahead and gave the downpipe a try on my wifes R56. Totally flawless install! The piece went in easier than the old cat came out! Lol worth the money, car sounds perfect and pulls a little harder. The turbo is definitely more audible with it also. I definitely recommend it.
I was very impressed how well the CNT Catless Downpipe was made. It fit perfectly and its quality made. Shipping was very fast. I'll definitely keep CNT in mind for my next purchase
Great build and sound
The hardest part of the install was removing the stock catted downpipe. Once that was out, I test fitted the downpipe and decided it was best to cut the bracket off as it made it too difficult to line it up correctly. Once the bracket was cut, pipe went right in. I opted for the cel fix, which is an o2 sensor spacer that goes on the bottom bung of the downpipe. When driving around it was throwing a code that the second o2 sensor, the one with the spacer, was stuck reading too lean. So I decided to bore out the spacer hole ever so slightly. Now the only code I get is that the o2 sensor takes too long to heat up, it still throws a cel, but not that big of a deal in my mind. Only way to truly avoid a cel is getting a tune. I would recommend this downpipe if you're willing to cut the bracket off and don't want to spend twice as much on a "name brand".
Absolutely love the sound it produced and it increased throttle response. All in all, good buy.
