I think BWM makes the quietest...it's called OEM. I have one in my garage if you are interested. It is made from the heaviest metal on earth (depleted uranium I think). I will be willing to let it go for $3,000.

For quietness, you would want a slip on, and I believe Akrapovic is probably up there for quietness. I haven't really heard too many others to give an informed judgement, and every one seems to have their own idea what constitutes loud and quiet.

Looking for the quietest exhaust is an unusual question....is the wife bitching?

EDIT: Dammit, JO8M3 beat me too it.

Question AFE Mach Force XP Exhaust

Does any one have any experience with this cat back exhaust system? Bavarian Autosports handles it. They advertise great sound and 13 hp.

I amongst others have an OEM set of cans sitting around that is of no use. Try and find someone local for convenience.

The Evo system probably would. But the slip on should be OK. Again it's rare to have someone desire a "quiet" exhaust, so tough call on this one.

if you want quiet why change from stock? How much of a whp increase are you all actually seeing on a stock m3 w a typical slip on?

I have a custom SS exhaust on my M3 which is catless, 3" all the way back, 2 magnaflow mufflers and a Vibrant ultra quiet resonator. This is on a 6 cyl but its still pretty loud.

If you want quiet exhaust, stay with stock.

I'm using fabspeed hfc and xpipe. After I installed the meisterschaft muffler it's way too loud now. I'm looking at other aftermarket alternatives.

Innotech axleback with the valve closed is quieter than stock. With the valve open, it's a little louder than a slip on Akra...
