Want more exhaust sound!

Hello
I have catless dps and stock exhaust, was wondering if an x pipe replacement would give me a more aggressive tone?!
Any advice ?
Many thanks!

If you're concerned about the exhaust being loud, then the PE with DPs are not for you.

I'm right there with you. It looks like I may begin modding my stock exhaust. The PE exhaust is harder to find than a dodo bird right now.

If you live anywhere in the US, you can get them from any BMW dealership or on ebay. Granted they won't be cheap but you can find them all the time.

Now if you're statement said a PE under $800, then that's another story.

Have you golf tee'd it yet? Try that first before you go to far.

Since you drive an E90 the BMW PE will come with a non-resonated midpipe. If you haven't tried the golf tee mod yet you should probably give that a try first before you go spending $ on an exhaust system.

You beat me to it. I just did this and my car (2010 335XI M package) sounds so much better. All I had to do is remove the plug in the trunk.

Go to Google and type in your car followed by golf tee. You can also go to YouTube and they will show you how to do this MOD. (Took me 10 seconds to do)

just did exactly that... it's slightly louder but nothing drastic... probably not worth it... go with another exhaust like BMW PE if you want something aggressive...
