I have no idea what BMW was thinking when they made this car so quiet. It just did not blend with the power it puts out. The Dinan exhaust is what the stock 550i should sound like OEM...IMO.
They went to the trouble of changing the tips on the Msport, I really can't imagine not giving the rest of the exhaust a more aggressive sound. Make it an option on the non M-sport and call it done. BMW dropped the ball for sure in this aspect. I don't exactly want to wake the neighbors but a little grunt would be nice.
