Exhaust noises

Hey all just sold my e46 and got a e83 x3 2.0d

Now it has developed a noise from the exhaust, i cant tell if its knocking and blowing or where from atm.
sometimes i think its from the rear sometimes from the front


Are there any common faults with the exhaust that will help me narrow it down...i am hoping that in between the world ending rain we are experiencing to swim underneath and have a poke about tomorrow

Still not traced it down

It has got worse its a rattling when the engine is under load, and now noticing a lack of power in 4th under heavy acceleration (hills etc)

it kind of feels strangled

any thoughts?
I have cleaned the egr as it was BAD! it is somewhat more responsive however I will probably have another clean up....are those tarrafirma(sp?) things any good? I can imagine the inlet mani is pretty choked up if the egr was as bad as it was..

Cheers
