E92 BMW Performance Exhaust in NOVA

Anyone have the bmw performance exhaust installed on an E92 335i/xi in northern virginia/DC? I'm trying to hear it in person before I pull the trigger. I know there are a ton of vids on the interwebs, but I'm actually trying to hear it NOT at WOT (and from inside the cabin), want to make sure there is no drone when driving normally.

Thanks!

as long as you retain the balance pipe between the mufflers, the x pipe/resonator, and the secondary cats, you shouldn't have any drone.

cold starts with catless downpipes though, are just as loud as they seem on youtube lol

I had the BMW PE on my N52. There is no drone and it's really not very loud. I'd say it puts it at M3 volume.

Don't mean to resurrect an old post... but if you guys are down, I'd also be interested in taking a listen before I pull the trigger. I want some more volume but I don't know if the PE will be enough

Not sure if its still going on but, I know every Thursday they usually have a BMW meet in Fairfax, VA by the Fair Oaks Mall. I am sure at least one person has the PE exhaust there.

I ended up getting the PE. Where are you located in NOVA? Shoot me a PM if you want to listen to mine.

Sorry about the delay, got caught up with work. I'm actually in MD, but I'm always down for a drive. I'll be away this weekend but I'll shoot you a message and maybe we can work out a time next week

My guess is today might not be happening with all of the snow... Next week's weather looks a little more promising!

Not sure how it got messed up or what's wrong but vibrations are coming from the front and rear wheels, gets pretty bad around 50MPH.

Let's hope we get some rain!
