go to a muffler shop and have them sawsall your muffler off, and have them weld on a straight pipe, its a good sound and not to loud and it will cost you about 30 bucks

Other than an exhaust will anything else give good sound and performance?

If you're looking for "cheap" a muffler delete is probably your best bet. If you're looking into gains, active Autowerke's N52 sig exhaust dyno'd at 5HP/5TQ. (Caution: drone) That'll cost 600+shipping+install (install should be no more than $50). At this point majority of the forum would argue that if you're gonna do about $700 for an axel back go with the PE exhaust which is a full system. Price range I've seen it at has been 900-1000 on average. Should be cheaper now that new body styles are rolling in. I'm not so sure about performance gains. + shipping and installation. I personally love my active autowerke axel back despite the drone. I've read a lot of people on here love their BMW PE's. I would recommend looking at videos although those aren't the most accurate and go from there.
