Maybe it has to do with me having an E90 and yours being an E93? Maybe the undercarriage is different and you get some type of resonance. Honestly, there is no additional drone in mine. At worst, there is a db or two extra sound at the same exact "drone" frequency as the stock system, under the same conditions. But there is more sound everywhere so this is in character and not excessive.

Thing is that there is no way that you will have "zero" drone with any of these exhausts. Even the stock has some drone in certain situation. I do not find my Sport to have any additional drone over stock. Just deeper and louder sound everywhere. I would guarantee that all of these "race" systems have a ton of drone under the same situations. It would be impossible not to.
