change exhaust on 335is

So I was wondering how many people with a 335is have switched the stock exhaust to the bmw PE one or another aftermarket exhaust? For those of you who have, are you happy with the decision or do you regret taking off the nice sounding stock one?

A lot of people do... It just depends on your taste. Some people want a more aggressive tone with performance, while some want SCREAMING LOUD.
Others.... want a fair pitch, so they keep stock.

Yeah that makes sense. I'm just torn because the stock one sounds really nice, but I would like it a tad bit louder like the PE I had on my 135.

I put the "is' exhaust on my 335i b/c I liked aggressive sound versus stock. I also added AR catted DPs to make it more aggressive and it is perfect imo. I'm not certain how the PE exhaust sounds v the "is". All I know is I cannot match the sound I had on my 135 b/c I had AR DPs, Berk mids, and Berk exhaust

The PE is more then just a "bit" louder...

In your place i would try the "golf tee mod" if you didn't do that already...

Good option would be the catted dp! That even helps performance

Yeah I already did the golf tee mod and i think it helped a bit, however I'm still thinking i would like it a bit louder. My main issue with the PE is that it has chrome tips instead of the sick black ones that come on the 'is' one.

I heard saw a video that has a Remus quad exhaust on a 335is and it sounded really nice.

Isn't the PE exhaust the same as the 335is stock exhaust?

The PE is all on all the time.
That was the only thing I really didn't like about it (and ultimately why I sold it).
Sometimes I just want to be quiet.

That's funny! I've been thinking of the exact same thing and really wanting to hear feedback from actual 335is owners if a PE is that much louder than the stock 'is' with "golf tee mod" to make it worth the $1K purchase. Like you, I'm happy with the current tone but feel it could use a little volume adjustment.

Regarding the tips, I looked into this as well and you can always buy the PE and have black tips welded on. There are some really good options for us

Please let us know if you pull the trigger

I can't imagine anyone not being content with the stock IS exhaust. It's one of the more perfectly tuned exhausts I've ever heard.
