Agree on the 3800-4000 rpm resonance (and really depends on the gear), which has increased with age as exhaust/fiberglass in mufflers has worn in (I have about 15k miles on the exhaust). However, I would not characterize it as an annoying drone, but more resonance/harmonic like....actually think it sounds really awesome and can't be replicated by any exhaust I've heard so far...I've gotten numerous random compliments on it, even though M3s are a dime-a-dozen in CA. Despite offering no HP increase, other than a tune this has been my favorite aftermarket mod.
