Most if not all 1M owners would agree with that! That's the one thing that doesn't fit with the rest of such a great car. Soundwise a stock 1M is nothing really special, there is a reason I myself counted 25 different aftermarket exhaust options for the 1M (posted it somewhere), excluding the dps and mid pipes alone; and I am sure there are even more available out there
Even new M135i sounds better than 1M.
From the video, for me: CRT>CSL>GTS but they all are sounding great.
The real point is if I would be forced to pick just one of these cars and stick with it, I would still not hesitate to pick the 1M again...and definitely put an exhaust on it right after and never look back
