So that's one tip for each cylinder? Classy.

I hear what you're saying. i believe that 4th tip is a dead tip.
tring to remember - it maybe funnel'n through the 3rd tip.
it's safe to say this is a cosmetic mod with minimal benefits to

if the owner install'd an M3 badge - that would fake the funk, imo.
The stock dual tips need'd an upgrade, having an msport rear,
and the owner decided to go with quads. I give him credit for

I had an M Coupe, with all four stupid exhaust tips. I debated a single sided exhaust, but ultimately didn't care enough to address it. Over stylized exhaust is just a personal pet peeve, if others like it, that's great. It just reminds me of mid-80's GM with six or eight fake exhaust tips on many cars. Of course the recent BMW trend of putting a transverse can with multiple tips on both sides is similarly annoying.
these quads have touch a nerve for you.
I have the same experience but with pony tails - chicks with 2 pony tails
drive me nuts. single pony tails i'm fine with. must of been in my
childhood, waiting in the lunch line, being bullied at age 8.

but seriously
i'm waiting for the 4banger to be really tuned.
Big single turbo upgrade, catless downpipe, single 3" straight pipe with dual 4" tip, and loud on the track.

BMW enthusiasm on all different levels, mods will be done
by influence and comments can contribute to acceptability, personally
preferences should hold to one's own and that's respectable.

comment on guys - i remember the earlier e90 years, this is rehashing
alot of arguments and preferences.
