A decent-sounding exhaust for the 4-cylinder is going to be pricy. Borla, Remus, Supersprint, Eisenmann, Schmiedmann. Borla is probably going to be the best sounding per dollar, but that's strictly a subjective judgement. And, no, I don't have any sound clips of them. Google it. I'll bet there are dozens of examples of sound clips on YouTube.

Unfortunately, there aren't a lot of sound clips for a 318 exhaust, but I can tell you that it will sound very rice. Remus sounds great, but very identical to stock. Borla, same thing. I prefer Borla myself because it has the best bang for buck in terms of sound and OEM fit. Most people would swap the engine out and drop in a 6 cyl. I don't know why since I think the M42/44 is a damn great engine.

My recommendation is get a BORLA and don't look back. If you boost the M42/44, it will sound beefier. In stock form, it will sound like a Honda "chivic" mang!

Honestly, I'd just save your money for something more worthwhile. Aftermarket exhausts on the 318 just make it sound like it's blowing farts all day long and don't add any meaningful performance gains.

I hear ya. I just think that with a four banger, anything louder than stock is too loud. It's best to not advertise the hairdryer under your hood...
