The flap opening and closing, when I switch between comfort and sport. You can hear it a few times as it cycles.

Yeah I think it sounds amazing as well. To sum it up its basically 90% like the BMW performance exhaust on a e90/92 335i. The note, sound, it's pretty much alike minus the over run burble on te f30.

I don't think the M performance muffler is horrible by any means, but it just wasn't loud enough for me in the end. And for what I paid for it it was just disappointing, when I could make my own for $100. What really made me feel like I made a bad choice is when a couple people would ask me when I was going to put an exhaust on my car, and I'd reply "it's got one" m performance...then naturally they say oh wow couldn't tell...

If they made the m performance sound like this I wouldn't have ever experimented, but I'm glad I did.
