The sound clips avalible on the web are difficult to judge. I want something with no bounding, and no roar. Just good tenor rasp. The bounding, bellowing, roar gets old quickly. I am assuming you are considering an aftermarket free flow. A full headered exhaust is quite the investment. A catback choice is an affordable alternative. What exactly are you interested in. So far I'm sided with the Eisleman cat back.
When In Doubt...Charge!

Do they really do anything for performance. I have seen a few on m3s and they sound terrible. Do you gain any performance for the poor sound? I added a remus to my e30. I wanted stainless steel to survive the winters. It has survived, no performance gain and just sounds louder.

HPF has a couple that looked pretty good. You are going to spend about $1200. They boast 12WHP.

I have the Borla and like it. Not too loud, but sounds very good when you get on it.
