They're right, not much functionality in the quad tip exhaust, it's only for looks. The M cars have them but done necessarily need them. Dinan's M3 exhuast solution has 4 tips on it, but only 2 of them are functional. So on a cold morning, an M3 w/ a Dinan exhaust would only have smoke coming out of 2 pipes.

Or we can use the G.W Bush Blaster exaust system.

I think it would make the back of the car look really cool.
I'm waiting on the E90 335.. And I'm sure eisenmann will have a dual and quad exhaust mod for the 335. Exhaust link

i agree with Gkve90 and tony. in the past, prior to m cars with quad pipes e39m5 and te z3 m roadster, i think only m cars had dual corner pipes. Current non m cars with dual corner exhaust are the 6 series, x5 and the new 335i coupe. i also think that they look more sporty, even the base lexus is250 has the dual corner exhaust look.
