My exhaust...... is crazy loud!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey,

So, my neighbors are complain about my exhaust. I now have to change it before they report it.

It's a 91 318i.
Currently it has, header----resonator----muffler.

It sounds fine, until you hit 2k rpm. Then it's a VERY ear piercing RATATATATATAT
Infact, on the road. It's so loud, I cant even hear my 2 12's in my trunk.

What should I put in place of all this?

I want it to be loud, but a low rumble.

Cheers in advance!

cops can only give him a ticket if he is driving the car. of courseall they have to do is wait down the block for him to leave and they can give him the ticket . a cop will have no problem waiting up the block to pull you over.

add a cheap ebay muffler infront of your other one.. problem solved

I HATE HOA's btw... i drove my e36 to my bosses place and his HOA called the cops on my car because it was too loud.
they did exactly what steve just said, except i saw them parked there so i never let my RPMs go above 1000 they followed me all the way out of the subdivision and mike (my boss got a nasty letter)

i cant bellieve they would call about that and not my jeep
