Not to downplay Oem Exhaust mod, I just have a problem with cutting open and modding a factory M3 exhaust. Can't help but feel ghetto doing that...
Input much appreciated
I'm OCD about my exhausts, spent a year fiddling with my '11 S4 and just gave up after the 3rd setup, couple other cars before that.
The M Performance is comparable to the lesser(cost) exhaust setups if you're going to flip exhausts due to sound, restlessness, being unhappy, droning, etc... got it on sale for $3100 shipped and thought that was fair. Hard part was waiting the 4mos for the car to arrive. Mine doesn't drone, or I'm never in the drone rpm(6sp here) so I never notice it. Very happy with it overall fwiw and I'm not looking to mod/fidgit/change anything with it which is an accomplishment for me.
