I did the AA signature exhaust on my 328i. Sounds good, drones a little on the highway. It has never bothered me since I had runflats that sounded 100000000000 times worse on the highway.

I know its been a few days since this was active but I wanted to add my .02 (even if some of you DGAF ).

I've had my MD for 4 of the almost 5 years I've owned this car. I have never had a single gripe, complaint, head shake, etc. from it. It sounds great, gives a little bit of kick to the motors power (notice I said "little"), and it sheds unnecessary weight from the ass end.

This mod truly hinges on 2 things to be enjoyable. 1) The right tips, 2) You don't muck with any thing else in the exhaust like headers, resonator, etc.

With the windows up cruising @ 75mph there is very little drone. I can carry on a conversation at whisper level and that's no BS either. I've scared off countless Subaru WRX's and STI's with this mod (they tend to flourish here due to the snow season) because they have no idea what they are messing with. It's a good feeling when you can stop a teenager from luring you into a bad situation just by giving a little bark from the exhaust.

Total with tips for this mod was $200 (I swapped tips twice to get the right flow, fit and sound). Its the best $200 I've even spent on a car.

I can see how it might work out, do you use a resonated tip?

Nope. Single in/dual 3" out round double wall tips. Almost sounds like I've got a small turbo under the hood. Its a very unique sound due to the amount of exhaust being pushed through the single pipe leading to the tips. I'm planning on picking up a gopro at some point in the near future. If I do I'll remember to get you some video on it.

Here's a vid right after I had it redone with the final tips.


And here's a friend describing it on the road under full throttle:

I just got the muffler and second cat delete done last month and I can't complain! It feels like it pulls a little smoother and stronger after 3000-3500 rpm but nothing huge. 3.5 dual outlet gives it a good look, it's sounds good and that deep gurgle you get when you let off the gas. love it.

Scratch that, I realized I have a Magnaflow Muffler #11216 (barely used) that I will put on my E90, so if the OP is cool with it I will post my videos of it here along with my show-off page when its done. If that is ok with the OP, not trying to thread jack.
