e92 OEM Performance Exhaust with different tips change sound/tone etc ?

Im thinking about getting the BMW PE in the near future, and i'm not really a fan of the tips. If i were to swap them with say, cyba's tips (keeping them dual, not quad), ya'll think the sound of the exhaust would change?

anyone already done this? chime in please

Very little. The mufflers is what makes the sound, not the tips. But I had tips installed in front of me onto a stock 335i exhaust and the note changed, but just a little deeper.

yea i know the sound stems from the mufflers but i think the tips do play a part, very little but i was curious if it would be higher or lower. if it is deeper as you mentioned, im cool with that.

I wouldn't touch the tips. I swapped and ended up swapping back. If you look at how the pe tips are designed you'll understand. When i swapped to the oe tips it basically sounded like the stock exhaust until I got on it. Pops and gurgling for the most part disappeared. Put the pe tips back on and I was happy again. BMW engineered those ugly ass tips like that for a reason and I'm not risking the sound for looks again.

My personal experience, I have the BMW PE and had a professional muffler shop weld some 4' Dimisa tips and I couldn't be happier, everything stayed the same sound wise and looks great!
