Are you trying to get rid of the raspiness?

lenardbjr 09-17-2012 06:11 PM

no just didnt know if the stock muffler is good enough or just like with mustangs people put flowmasters on them like its a given.

They want the noise.

There are really not any HP gains with an exhaust.

Look around here and other sites and listen to the clips. And compare to your budget.

I have a Borla on mine and like it. Better sound without being obnoxious. A bit of a drone around 2500 RPM, but I seldom drive at that RPM.

To get rid of the rasp, you need to replace the mid section. Personally, I like the sound.

You might have some trouble finding yourself an '07 ;)

I would go with a full Eisenmann exhaust

If your looking for a super clean sounding exhaust system, i would run the Rogue El Diablo System. It also give you the options to add the Rasp Pipe and X-Pipe if you want the full system! Our customers have loved them!

935 bucks for a Borla midpipe. I'd love to get rid of the rasp, but it is just not worth it.

thanks for the quick response. Im still in the research phase for buying a M3. I might just stick with the stock exhaust. But i am months from that now.
