Cheapest alternative is to youtube some exhaust vids of N52 guys with PE and play it loud thru the speakers. Thats what I do during on ramps, really impresses my friends.

Double check this with your dealer, but.

I had the BMW performance Exhaust installed by the dealership I leased the car from. When I went to return the lease they had no problem with it.

I was going to buy a CPO from them and at the last min the deal fell through, so i bought out my lease instead. But my understanding is that if it's a BMW part installed by a BMW dealer they won't have an issue.

You won't get your money back and you'll pay more for the dealership to install it than an indy shop. If you don't care about those things and really want to be safe as far as the lease is concerned than that's the way to go.

the quickest and easiest thing to do...although not directly to the exhaust but youll get the idea is to use your mouth. you can control the sound and exactly how you want the car to sound.

ferrari, m3, 335, mustang, no problem..

search up some youtube vids for some inspiration and keep us updated on your progress.

The pe exhaust is the way to roll on this. I also have a lease and with the pe exhaust there will be no issues. Plus it sounds great. It's only about 1k to buy it and have it installed by us here in Florida.
