what narks me, is that BMW have the bare faced cheek to charge 500 ish for the performance exhaust for a 318 (performance 318? theres a joke!) but then to charge over 800 for the 6 cylinder version!!

They look identical, and i'm fairly sure there no more manufacturing costs, parts or materials involved in making the one for the 325/330 etc.

It's just massively inflated costs designed to take advantage of people willing to pay for the priviledge of having a 6 cylinder BMW.

It does sound great in that vid.

I'm glad someone has mentioned cost. I knew it would cost considerably more than alternatives out there and possibly not much/any better quality.

800 is too much for a bit of noise and a few ponies imo.
