AE, perfect fitment, nothing required other than the right wrenches (BMW likes to use 10 different sizes for everything....)
However, I'm speaking from a e92 standpoint, but everything i've read is the e90 is just as perfect fitment wise

as long as it's the dual tip. quads was a pain in the ass if you didn't have a quad diffuser and wanted to trim it. =[

definitely get an AE! fitment is perfect, it sounds the best by far, and looks the best.

Vanguard without a doubt. The sound is amazing; it's loud but non-intrusive, has great build quality, and looks the best out of all the exhausts. BTW, it's also one of the least expensive options.

The AE exhaust is great. Easy install and sounds great.

Can't go wrong.

since were on this topic, im looking for an aftermarket exhaust as well....will they fit on a stock e92 bumper, if I wanted to put a cf diffuser on it (dual exhaust). Also what are the hp/tq gains from AE and Vanguard...both sounds good to me...just looking for performance gains to sway my decision.

Sorry to jack the thread, but im sure it would be some good info for those who are in the same boat...thanks
