Garage List
2011 BMW E90 M3  [4.72]
As SVC just mentioned, I originally went with the Active Autowerke rear and loved the sound. Only received compliments and even my gf loved it. Eventually I decided to go for the power and got the Active Autowerke x-pipe as well, truly an epic sounding exhaust. With the x-pipe I got a nice power bump, but also the car really screamed all the way up to redline (with just the rear, engine noise took over at about 4500 rpm). I loved this setup and everyone else did too, but I finally made the change to Dinan rear with my AA x-pipe (there is no way I'm giving up the x-pipe gains) for something a bit more tame. I love my new setup, but I will definitely miss the epic noise of the AA and it will always get a vote for me
