That does sound cool. I'd love to hear some real world tests to see how it really works.

Awhile back someone from UUC/Corsa posted asking for someone to volunteer for a test fit on an E90. The Corsa site does say they have one for a 2005 E90. Haven't heard anything since.

I had a Corsa exhaust on my 2003 Tahoe and it ROCKED!
It was the single best investment in an after market part that I made. It had a deep raspy V8 sound, it would need to be re-tuned for the BMW but if they made one for the 330 I would do it.

That's interesting. I always love applied physics.

The bottom line of course is how it sounds. Nissan tuned their exhaust specifically for their 350Z, G35, FX35, etc. So did Ford for their Mustang. I'd be interested in knowing what approach they took to do this.

My wife's Dad had a Corsa Indy setup on his C5 and it absolutely rocked. Plus it looked good too. Lots of shiny stainless bits. I think for cat-back it was about $1000.
