Best sounding exhaust?

I'm looking for exhaust for my 2008 BMW 328 xi and I want something that has a good sound but not real loud. Is BMW PE the best for not loud but sounds good or what? Opinions??

Idk why he said no need but, out of the video..the PE sounded best but it's pricey. I have a Remus Powersound, look into it. It's all based on your opinion though

Well since you said you didn't want it loud... I'd go with magnaflow. It's deeper and quieter than PE. Personally I love loud exhaust so I went muffler delete and I get compliments all the time. Though it sounds like a race car in sports mode.

No need for trolling, Mr. Capone. Sorry we can't all afford a 335i!

The Laptorr is by far the best sounding system for these cars, but A) its hard to get B) Its expensive as shit. Close to 3k last time I checked.

Just go with a PE and be done with it, its a grand, its a bmw part, and it sounds great.

Oh, and btw I could of afforded a 335. I love the ignorance from others.

PE w/ 2nd cat delete?

PE w/ Headers?

Between the 2 i think you'd be pretty loud. Or just be a straight renegade and run with no exhaust manifold and shoot flames out the side of the block lol
