135is exhaust

Like you, I see no big deal with the amount of extension on the exhaust. I never compared it with "garden variety" 1's and my only other point of reference is my wife's 328xi. As for a discernible drone at certain rpms, of course the exhaust note changes over the range of rpm (I've been careful not to exceed 4500 until I have 1200 miles on the engine - trying to behave myself) but no particular "droning" noise. Honestly, the exhaust sound was one of the unexpected pleasant surprises for me when I drove this car. [Maybe at 57 years, I'm just getting old.] I love to slowly accelerate through each gear listening to that exhaust.
