Save up and get a 'real' exhaust, a Akrapovic. If u going to put an exhaust on a luxury car you should go all the way, don't half SS it. .02

I currently have the BMW performance exhaust on my e92 335 and it sounds much better, especially at start-up and there's less raspy noises. I guess this new exhaust for the F30 is louder than mine but that's all I can say.

Reminds me of the M Performance exhaust for the E9X M3 but worse. I'm sure it sounds better in person but it still has that hollow/metallic sound vs. the low/throaty stock exhaust. I think the Akrapovic is the best sounding aftermarket exhaust followed by Eisenmann.

First off the Gargle and pop is only enhanced when the car is in sport plus regardless if it's stock or m exhaust. Look at my video to see the gargle and pop and rolling clips of the m performance exhaust. And ya recording device does not capture the full tone.

Also who ever installed that exhaust did not do it right bc the m is hidden under the bumper.

Even though I have the BMW Performance Exhaust and an N55 (on an E92), this F30 sounds different. I think the downpipe is a single piece in the F30 and does not split off into two pipes so ... might have something to do with it. I think my E92 sounds a lot better. Less hollow-ness as others noted.

I wonder if the 535 performance exhaust will sound like this. This is too loud for a 535 luxury car. Hopefully they tune it down. It's good for a coupe though.

I won't be trading my E92 M3 sound for this.

It sounds just like my neighbors modded scion tc , which sounds like crap
