Exclamation 2007 650i - Exhaust Upgrades

So I have been considering upgrading the exhaust to a nice mellow sound. Stock is just so blah, for it looking so amazing and having great power/tq.

Any recommendations? I have seen kits for like $1500-$2000 which is pretty high, but then again it is a BMW

If you are willing to fork out the cash, The Eisenmann, Meisterschaft or supersprint make great systems. I love my eisenmann

Hmmmm, hate to say it but that's really not the sound I'd want. Sounds really high pitched and similar to a Honda. Maybe it was because of the cold start and high revs. I'm looking for more of a soft, deep rumble sound....not so raspy.

That's just it. I was looking for a higher note. Sounds great when driving. Go with a flow through style them, like a magnaflow

If it's a Borla sound you want, go with them. Good quality. Most of the "sound" is going to be a factor of the number of cylinders, the bore/stroke of the motor, diameter of the pipes, lengths of the pipes, number of bends... So many factors, that you can't really compare different makes/models of cars. Personally, I will keep the stock mufflers, and just replace the H-pipe and dual resonators with a x-pipe... For $200-$300.

Yeah I do realize that. I have fixed up cars from supercharged to daily drivers, from X to H to headers, borla to bassani, flowmaster to mac, cam, forged pistons, etc

But a stock engine 6 series, will sound similar but with different mufflers or catback systems based on the chambers sound or straight through flow

Let me know how much shipped to 98075.

Nevermind. Either the sound clips across youtube dont' do it justice or it's really not a sound I want.

I know that I want a little bit throaty-er sound.....
The car sounds good, sounds like a muffler delete, am I right...
I know that just before I take my car in for whatever new mufflers I come up with, I'm going to do a very old procedure that was done on the late model American cars.....
I'm going to drill a hole (say a coupe of inches) down thru the center of the tips into the muffler chamber and see what happens...
Ive never done it but I know they use to do it back in the day..

I think I love this one

http://www.magnaflow.com/02product/d...rtnumber=16560

http://www.magnaflow.com/04sound/spo...0i/08650i.html

most of these other exhaust are sounding like the car is a nascar vehicle. Magnaflow sounds deep and throaty but doesn't get raspy up top either in my opinon. Heck they cost about the same too, so that's not my issue.
