Who else?

Thinks that the MKIV R32's stock exhaust sounds dead sexy? From everything I've listened to (that includes the Ferrari F430), this one still holds the crown of being the best sounding OEM exhaust ever. I mean I love the exhaust on my 330 but I definitely like the R32's tune better, might have to buy a R32 sometime just for the exhaust alone.

I've just listened to the MKV R32's exhaust, not nearly as impressive. For some weird reason I'm just attracted to the sound of MKIV R32's exhaust.

Sounds like a muscle car. Was on PCH once, and a blue one pulled up right along side, I started to accelerate, he caught my drift.... then took off, as he pulled away you could hear this spine tingling whale from the exhaust. INSANE!

More refined than any muscle car's exhaust I've ever heard though, that's what I like about it.

The stock exhaust from R32 MkIV models is made by sebring exhausts, Austria. If you like the sound, maybe you should go for a sebring on your e90.

Nothing beats the pure sound of the engine itself. Exhausts always fail to mimic the aesthetics of the sounds of an insanely built engine.

That's why, in my opinion, nothing beats the sound of Ferraris as they are ridiculously high-revving, high-power-outputting engines yet small at the same time.

My brother has a R32 race tuned for Fuji Speedway in Japan. It is one hell of a machine. I'm still standing tall next to my E90
