Question Medium priced, not too loud exhuast?

Hey y'all,

I'm looking to buy a medium priced, "not too loud" exhaust.

I don't know much about exhausts, so I'm looking for some suggestions.

Probably your best bet is to just have the muffler replaced with something thatll fit.
Maybe a magnaflow or borla? Dont know which one but Im sure they make one that would have to fit

the active autowerke exhaust for our car is nice. i just got mine and it is definitely better than stock but only if you dont mind a little drone. i got mine used on the forum for $150 less than brand new and it only had 5k miles on it.

I was in the same boat as you. I just bought a RennArt non resonated catback exhaust. I am so happy with it. It sounds great at start up. It is nice loud not fart can loud.

You can order it from AA website and get it shipped here. It will cost you around 600 shipping included. That's where i got mine.

I watched a YouTube vid, and it seemed too loud.

You can't judge by a video. If the AA exhaust is too loud for you, I would not get an exhaust period.

I completely disagree. I had an AA on mine, and it was too loud.
At least the drone was. The exhaust noise itself was loud, but not over the top loud.

I sold mine and got a MMW V2. Couldn't be happier. Quiet inside, very nice sound with windows down and spirited driving. Couldn't be happier.

There are many many option that fall between stock an AA (basically a muffler delete).
Ikon/Magnaflow/PE/MMW etc.

Get the magnaflow catback kit. It's somewhat pricy at $900, but good medium warm tone and volume with no rasp.

I also have the AA exhaust and i really like it, not to loud, but sounds good when you step on the gas, i would definitely recommend it.

He is talking about exterior sound. The AA is about the same loud as eisenmann, PE etc..

If hhowever he was talking about drone, yes it does drone more than others. Don't buy it if you can't stand drone.

You just said "couldn't be happier" twice and therefore negated yourself.

And BMW PE does NOT fall between stock and AA.

Honestly, Drone or no Drone on the AA exhaust I get a lot of people breaking their necks here. So I'm happy with my AA

Haven't heard the AA in person but for what it is, I know it won't be "not too loud" since it's basically a muffler delete lol. It is a good priced exhaust especially if you can pick one up used for the people that can't handle the drone/loudness haha.
