I did hear a Modded one in person and it wasn't for me.

Not my $$$$, but I wish you had heard the original mod too. I just had mine done by replacing the large perforated pipes with non perforated and it is pure bliss. Total spent was $500.00
Used E90 Exhaust $150.00
Fabrication and removal of my exhaust/install of modded exhaust $350.00.

I have heard the PE from outside and inside the car and I prefer the sound of the modded. My wife drives the car more than I do and she has not even questioned the change and I didn't tell her about it yet. Which was the true litmus test. Of course she barely revs over 4K and only drives in D4

The best part of it for me, my exhaust was just replaced under warranty two weeks ago, so I basically have a new exhaust sitting in my garage if I decide to go back to the non modded sound.
