Hmm, I don't know....

I've had a JB4 for a while now and yes, it's great BUT...I just had a loaner '12 z4 35i with DCT and a gurgling/popping exhaust and I after only 4 days I almost would be willing to trade the extra power for that sound.

you just want louder exhaust, but 135 and z4 are much louder then 335s.

i mean, thats just my opinion. i dont think exhausts are really worth it(500-2500). I run a muffler delete, cheap, saves weight, and sounds great to me. drones but people say even PE drones (which drones immensely less then a muffler delete)

id save some cash and play with your stock exhaust before spending the money. the money for exhausts are really paying for how well an exhausts sounds without any drone. which is hard because im sure that if people think PE drone alot, you'll hate everything else.

i dont think an exhaust will be the deal breaker in a race either. you really get minimal hp gains. Though a great sounding car is alot more enjoyable.

Best mods

The Cobb AP really rocks on the 335.
I also have lightweight forged ProDrive GC-05K wheels with non-RFT

Thank you
From local retailer, but you can get them from Apex themselves.

http://www.apexraceparts.com/

Or from vendors from this site.

My #1 fav mod is the muffler delete. I haven't heard an aftermarket muffler or system that can compare. The way they designed the cats & pipes, pulling the muff out yields an amazing sound! I get tons of compliments on the sound and am asked all the time "what muffler are you running???" Answer is simple: Exactly....what muffler???

We all know that louder feels faster, even if it isn't.

I actually have heard it. It's nice.
Can't argue the cost effectiveness of the MD though. Cost me a total of under $100

Does this mean my e90 lci sport has that wheel? Since they didn't start with the "M" on sedans till 2010 if memory serves me right. Look at my garage for a pic of my interior steering wheel!

Really hard to pick just one:

1. JB4 G5 (with a little E85 in the tank) for the go-fast
2. Dinan FFE for the sound
3. CSL deck lid for looks

but I guess I would actually put them in that order...
