I thank the OP of this thread the most for the video illustrating the difference between exhausts of the M3's. One with the M Performance Exhaust and one with the stock exhaust. I knew the stock sounded good from outside the car but I had no idea it sounded that good at WOT. After hearing that there is no longer an urgency to upgrade IMO. The M Performance did sound better but not $3k better.
