That's funny! I've been thinking of the exact same thing and really wanting to hear feedback from actual 335is owners if a PE is that much louder than the stock 'is' with "golf tee mod" to make it worth the $1K purchase. Like you, I'm happy with the current tone but feel it could use a little volume adjustment.

Regarding the tips, I looked into this as well and you can always buy the PE and have black tips welded on. There are some really good options for us

DiMisa - http://www.dimisatips.com/ and
Cyba - [intlink]237510;Cyba/ New Quad Tips.black Chrome!!![/intlink]

Please let us know if you pull the trigger
Yeah i thought of that too. On my 135 PE i actually painted the tips black and it looked good but i had to put another coat on it every few months. With winter coming i probably won't do this until the spring if i do it at all, but I'm trying to see who has done it and if they are happy with their decision. I guess i could always put the stock exhaust back on and sell the PE one if i don't like it as well.

Not to bring an old thread back to life, but does anyone if there is a weight difference between the 335is stock exhaust and the bmw performance one?

Keep mine stock. Can't see spending a $1000 for an incremental noise bump. If its really really important to you just cut open the IS system pull out the stuffing & weld it closed.

Was that drone I heard on the freeway ? Wouldn't mind a bit more tuneful exhaust, but not at the expense of uber noisy cruise.

No, I haven't changed the stock exhaust yet. I just haven't been able to justify spending over a thousand dollars for a minor increase in sound, especially when the stock IS one sounds pretty sweet. I'll keep you in mind though if i do buy the performance one for my car.
