I enjoy a throaty exhaust. My old Porsche had a great sound. But it seems that the M Performance might be more for attention and too loud. Do others have an opinion?
I have it on my 2015 435i, installed by my dealer (btw, it's OEM part not aftermarket). Sound is improved but is not obnoxious. Your neighbors should not complain (cold starts may annoy them, but it tones down in a few seconds), it's muted unlike the exhaust on an F-type exhaust and only comes alive under certain conditions.
