Both are nearly un-noticeable with hood closed and can't be heard from drivers seat. For all practical purposes, car is a sleeper.

Sounds killa. I've got the UUC RSC36 exhaust system. Currently, I have no cold air intake. I bet there will be an auditory difference once you begin to accelerate under a load (pedal to the metal at 5,000 RPM). Most of the blown E46 M3s that I've ever listened to at Bimmerfest are way more aggressive-sounding than stock...


This is what mine looks like. I have been a BMW fanatic since 1977 (mom& dad's first E21 318is they bought as a pair):





I have been with BMW as a retailer on and off since 1987. The E36 M3 is my all-time favorite Bimmer....
