Exhaust for 325i

Are there any exhausts for a 06 BMW 325i that are cheap and have a nice low pitch??

I just got the active autowerke axel back, it sounds amazing and it's $599+ shipping. Since you own a 325i it's going to need custom piping since it was originally built off of the 328i thinking the 325i was the same but it wasn't. My muffler shop made me a custom pipe from the resonator paid a total of $150 for install (I thought it was worth it cause the stock brown piping is ugly imo) I love this exhaust, it was exactly the sound I was going for. It does drone between 1.5-2.5 RPM range, not a big issue. The quality of the build is great and it looks really nice! I couldn't have been happier with it!

yea thats why I said get it or go home, this is one of the few mods that is WELL WORTH the MONEY! One member one here bought the AA Exhaust and was regretting it b/c of the drone from 1.5k-2.5k range. I also had a buddy of mine with a fully modded IS350 say (at a cold start) the BMW PE sounds like their is a v8 under the hood. I laughed but he said he was serious, but all I know is that the BMW PE is the best exhaust for this car.

$600 for the AA, plus $150 for install and you're basically at PE money.

I paid 500 + 150 since I Pre ordered but I see your point, honestly the only thing that held me back from the PE is that I HATE the choking sound it makes when being revved. It really bothers me.

magnaflow cat back has had good reviews as well. It is around the $500 range isn't it?
