I can't hear the e92 clips here at work but maybe I got CPE confused with Agency.

Try the clips from the e90 thread (although, I firmly believe they don't do it justice)....It's being beta tested on my car right now and will go into production in less than a month.....

I have no drone on my 330i with my Dinan exhaust and Bimmian/Simota CF Intake. I gues its a little one at 2 but its not loud at all. Then again I have a 330i and you have a 335i. Sorry for the waste of a post but maybe it will help another 325/328/330 owner

This is really hard to believe because i have it with my conservative magnaflow mufflers (which have an S curve inside) and I still have drone.

After trying this and the AA exhaust i think any aftermarket exhaust will drone-6 cylinders are just loud.

i really want more opinions on the CP-E exhaust, because i don't know who to believe anymore. Active Autowerke toldme that their unit had no drone and that was total BS, the drone was so bad i had to take it off in a week.

Britalman here as well. I hear drone around 2k rpms, but I like the exhaust so far (3rd day). For $995 + shipping, I am happy.

I think you're missing the point. A few of the Nissan VQ variants (G35/350z) are known for being relatively quiet, while still having a nice burbly rumble to them in stock form. Those cars (350z/G35) sound very good, I wouldn't mind my 335 sounding like a 350z with a fujitsubo exhaust.

It's really hard to believe that some people say that they got no drone at all, while others have too much of it. What gives?

Hard to believe because that setup sounds very deep in sound clips.

I'm in NJ/Philly area, too far away.
When you say that you have no drone, are you saying that you do not get an annoying constant deep WOOOOOOO sound from 2000 to 2500 rpms (regardless of speed)?
If this is so the only thing that i can think of that could be causing the drone is the piping, which makes no sense because SS is SS.

So are you considering putting the stock exhaust back on and go back to the quiet life?

Forgot to mention that I replicated Mr. 5's exhaust on his thread and with a 'deal' price, I had my full system built and installed for $500.
