You guys want to spend the big bucks out there for an exhaust to say you got "brand X", knock yourselfs out. I for one don't feel there is much difference that you will see. The Megan is actually a pretty good exhaust and the fact it copied the Agency Power exhaust doesn't bother me one bit. Who the hell looks under the car and "oohs an ahhs", he's got a Akrapovic...or a Eisenmann or insert any other brand."
This you got an "M3" so it deserves more...LOL, its a car, a nice one but still a car.
I think its about the prestige and knowing you have a superior product in quality,design,sound that really sets most people off.
Like for example i have $3,000 Volk TE37's on my Civic and most people would think i am crazy for doing this. I just prefer it that way when i could have bought a set of Rota's and called it a day i didn't. I bought the forged,light weight wheel with the heritage and prestige behind it which is more gratifying. I will be honest i was very surprised Megan racing even made an exhuast for the M3 when i saw it in person. Ive seen nothing but mediocre stuff come from them the past few years but overall the quality n sound looked and sounded decent.
I just feel when you buy a car such as the M3 which was designed through engineering perfection that it deserves the best and perhaps most would agree. I have scanned this site for almost 2 years now and 9 out of 10 M's feature almost 10k in brake and wheel upgrades alone so whats another few k for an exhuast system lol.
