AWE vs. Remus (Axleback)

So I’m really torn between this decision...

I want to get opinions from you guys who either own one of these or have heard them. Which one is more fitting for our motors?

Some people even say a tuningwerk is the best?

Really hard to judge for me from videos alone.

Appreciate any help.

I can’t stand drone at all. I got a Remus, no drone at all, great sound, but not super noisy. Catless it’s probably louder though.

REMUS sounds the best in my opinion

I have the Remus right now with a catted downpipe. Sounds perfect. Aggressive when getting on it with a loud start up but no drone whatsoever. I was originally going to get AWE since they have the 4inch tips option, but they were on backorder for a while, so I ended up with Remus. I wasn't the biggest fan of the design of the tips for Remus, but it is definitely growing on me.

Torn between these two options as well.
What’s your current exhaust setup?

I’m trying to eliminate the “raspy” tone.
I have a catless dp, Dinan midpipe and m performance axleback.

I would either keep the catless and get REMUS axle back or remove the downpipe and get a REMUS catback

Put the stock midpipe back on and/or get a catted downpipe. There is no measurable performance gain running catless. The lack of muffling in the DP and midpipe are the sources of rasp. I've got the MPE and HJS Euro 6 catted DP and don't have one ounce of rasp (or drone).

My 335xi has a catted DP now and Corsa exhaust. Sounds pretty loud and intense. No drone at all thank god!

Borla Atak before on the F30, no Dp sounded good.
