Dual or Quad exhaust?

I personally don't care which one i get cause i think either one works for me, but say you saw either one on a 3 series which one would you like better for looks.

Personally, I like the dual. The quad looks "busy" from the back. I've seen it on other cars and I like it though. Just a matter of preference.

I like my black duals. Never considered quads.

Is it purely an aesthetic difference, or does a quad exhaust actually improve performance in some way?

+1 for "dual". Quads look goofy unless you're driving something seriously fast, IMO.

Quads are trying way to hard. Just upgrade to bigger tips/paint them black etc... There are lots of options for dual tips.

I went duals. At the time I didnt have m-tech rear so I couldnt change out diffusers for the quads....I probably would have bought quads if I did have the m-tech when purchasing . Was too lazy to trade in the end and im more than satisfied with the sound the eisenmann race is making. In the end do what YOU want!!!
